Epsiode 103: Trends for December 13-29 Hardware and Software Updates & Announcements, Annual Trends Reviews, Net Neutrality, and Instructional Design.
December 30, 2017 § Leave a Comment
We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks that include December 13-29 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). We discuss four trends: hardware and software updates/announcements, annual trends/reviews/predictions, net neutrality, and instructional design. We end the episode with making predictions of the trends we believe will be for 2018: more hardware and software announcements, instructional design, security issues, online teaching and learning, artificial intelligence, augmented reality and virtual reality (with AR sharing more of the spotlight), and open educational resources.
We have four recommended readings for this episode. They are:
- TMagic Leap’s Mixed Reality Headset is Real, and it Looks Totally Steampunk by Raymond Wong
- The Top 3 Higher Ed Trends of 2017 by Meghan Bogardus Cortez
- Net Neutrality Changes Expected to Have Big Implications for Education by Emily Tate
- Is Wikipedia a Trustworthy Academic Resource? Scientists Think So by Meghan Bogardus Cortez
Have a happy and healthy new year!
The next episode will air on January 12, 2018.
