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.
