We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of January 9-24 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). We discuss three trends that we observed. The first is the augmented reality and virtual reality. There was no single focus of the resources we flipped. The second trend was online teaching and learning. There were a number of resources we flipped dealing with online tools for teaching and learning online. The third tread was K12 classroom technology resources. There were a number of resources we flipped that discussed available resources (e.g. a version of Adobe design products available for the Chromebook) that can be used by students and teachers.
