May 4, 2015 § 1 Comment
We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of April 20- May 4, 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 trend dealt with the Apple iWatch. There were a number of articles dealing with reviews of the iWatch with only a few dealing with instructional uses. The second trend focused on social media and its educational applications. The third trend was AR/VR news–specifically Microsofts’ HoloLens. Although it is not available yet, the HoloLens has received several recent reviews.
We have three recommended readings for the week.
