We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of November 24 – December 6 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). We have three trends that we discuss. Once again, VR was a trend. There were a number of resources about uses of VR tools such as Google Cardboard and Expedition along with Samsung Gear and Sony’s PlayStation VR. The second trend are a variety of resources about online courses.  The last trend we discuss is security and net neutrality. There were also two news-worthy items we passed along that are not trends: 1) the demise of Flash; actually, flash moving away from being an interactive development tool back to being an animation development tool; and 2) it is time again for the Hour of Code.

We have three recommended readings for the week.

We also recommended the video interview with Dr. Kursat Cagiltay about smart toys. This can be found at http://theedtechdoctor.com/ (episode 39).
