We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of December 31-January 8 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). We discuss three trends that we observed. The first is the Consumer Electronics Show (http://www.ces.tech/). Two major ideas cam out from the show that we believe are emerging trends: smart products and voice controlled hardware. The second trend was online teaching and learning. There were a number of resources we flipped that dealt with faculty development issues with teaching online. The third tread was augmented reality and virtual reality.
