Episode 53 Trends for December 8-20 VR, Online Learning, Security Issues & Software Data Breaches, and Chromebooks
December 23, 2015 § 1 Comment
We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of December 8-20 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). We have four trends that we discuss. VR/AR was again a trend we observed–one that has been a trend for most of 2015. The second trend was online learning. There were a plethora of resources we flipped on various aspects of online learning: philosophical view points, best practices tied to research, and online learning as big business.The third trend we discuss is security issues ranging from the banning of watches during tests at a University to data-encryption issues with older cellphones. The fourth trend we discussed was Chromebooks in the classroom.
We have four recommended readings for the week.
