We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of February 2-15, 2015 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). In this episode of our podcast, we discuss four trends: a potpourri of trends (e.g. new or updated hardware and software, instructional strategies),¬†more on wearables (especially Apple’s iWatch and Sony’s Smart Eyeglass),¬†continued discussion about net neutrality, and the collaboration of Mattel and Google on the new View-Master–another addition to the world of AR and VR.

We have three recommended readings for the week.
