Episode 66 Trends for June 29-July 10 Ed Tech Partnerships, Online & Mobile Learning, and VR Content
July 12, 2016 § 1 Comment
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.
