June 30, 2017 § Leave a Comment

We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks that include June 13-29 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). We discuss four trends: online learning, AR and VR,  privacy and security issues, and social media. The focus of online learning resources was on the total client experience rather than on specific issues about tools. With AR and VR focused on a number of companies developing new patents. There was a focus on privacy issues related to big data and student data. Finally, social media once again filter up as a trend with resources focusing on social media use in education.

We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of May 30 – June12 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). We discuss three trends: living and learning online, AR and VR,  and artificial intelligence (AI). Living and learning online, as a trend, focused on resources and news that went beyond teaching and learning online. We observed resources and news about digital literacy, personal productivity, and online safety. AR and VR remained a trend but with AR taking center stage. Finally, a new trend (in terms of our reporting) emerged: artificial intelligence specifically as it relates to learning.
