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.

Our three recommended readings:

We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of December 8-20 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). We have four trends that we discuss. VR/AR was again a trend we observed–one that has been a trend for most of 2015. The second trend was online learning. There were a plethora of resources we flipped on various aspects of online learning: philosophical view points, best practices tied to research, and online learning as big business.The third trend we discuss is security issues ranging from the banning of watches during tests at a University to data-encryption issues with older cellphones. The fourth trend we discussed was Chromebooks in the classroom.

We have four recommended readings for the week.
