We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of January 2-17, 2016 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). We have four trends that we discuss. The first is news from the recent Consumer Electronic Show. The second (and reoccurring) is virtual reality. The big news is Octlus Rift will ship in July of this year. The third was a focus on gaming related to instruction and cognitive development. The fourth trend is a mixture of resources on instructional design strategies and cognition research.

We have four recommended readings for the week.
