Episode 31 Trends for Weeks of January 5-18, Google Glass Retires, New Technologies, and Technology Enhanced Pedagogy
January 20, 2015 § 1 Comment
We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of January 5-18, 2015. We discuss three trends that we observed as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). The trends include Google’s announcement of the retirement of Google Glass, a number of new technologies being announced (e.g. the enhanced Google Translator app & the muscle sensing Myo), and technology enhanced pedagogy.
We have two recommended readings for the week.
