Episode 65 Trends for June 10-28 VR & AR Distinctions, OER, Online Teaching & Learning, & the ISTE Conference
June 29, 2016 § 1 Comment
We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of June 10-28 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). We discuss three trends. The first is a continuing one virtual reality and augmented reality. An interesting element of the resources we flipped had to do with a distinction being made between VR and AR. The second trend was OER. There were several companies (e.g., Amazon, Google) coming out with OER resources for education. The third trend was online learning. There were a variety of resources we posted dealing with engaging students in online learning and the structure of online learning experiences.
We have four recommended readings.
