Episode 35 Trends for the Weeks of Mar. 9-22 Student Data Privacy, Continuing News on AR/VR, Wearable News Wanes
March 24, 2015 § 1 Comment
We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of March 9-22, 2015 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). In this episode of our podcast, we discuss 3 trends. The first is student and data privacy concerns. One surprising article we flipped dealt with Pearson Publishing monitoring student Twitter accounts. The second is continuing news on VR/AR. Several devices will become available for consumers in the next few months. The third was a mixture of random articles about wearable devices.
We have three recommended readings for the week.
