Episode 63 Trends for May 6-26 AR Use Rising, Cheating, and Debate over Classroom Technology Integration
May 27, 2016 § 1 Comment
We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of May 6-26 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). We discuss three trends. The first is virtual reality and augmented reality. We observed resources focusing on corporate applications of VR. There were also several critiques of VR devices. Finally, we observed a continued call for more VR content. The second trend was cheating–specifically using networked technologies. The third trend was the debate over classroom technology integration. We observed a number of articles discussing when and how technology should be used in the classroom.
We have four recommended readings.
