We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of January 25-February 10 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). We discuss two trends that we observed. The first trend is online learning. There were a number of different resources relating to online learning such as best practices, instructor presence, and cheating. The second trend is media literacy and digital literacy. Specifically, the focus on helping students learn how to recognize legitimate online resources dominated the resources in the media.
