We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of August 10-21 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). We discuss three trends. The first is Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. AR dominated with resources and news the intersection of AR use in the real world.  There were continued updates about hardware and software along with discussions about Apple is focused on AR. The second trend is online teaching and learning with general strategies about effective online teaching and being a successful online student. The third trend was social media use in teaching and learning.

We have four recommended readings.

Our next episode will air September 8.
