July 25, 2016 § 1 Comment

Pokemon Go AppWe discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of July 11-24 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). We discuss three trends. The first is the return of VR and AR–specifically augmented reality with the popularity of Pokemon Go. The second trend was online learning and mobile learning. The third trend was 3D printing. A number of resources discussed applications of 3D printing, but the major story-line was security issues related to 3D printing.

We have three recommended readings.

Our next episode will air August 8.

We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of June 29-July 10 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). We discuss three trends. The first is a number of partnership announcements between established companies (e.g. Google and Microsoft announcing a partnership to provide professional development). The second trend was online learning and mobile learning innovative strategies. The third trend was virtual reality. While VR did not dominate, it was still a trend. The focus we observed was new content options for virtual reality.

We have four recommended readings.

Our next episode will air July 25.
