"Once a new technology rolls over you, if you're not part of the steamroller, you're part of the road" - by Stewart Brand. In this article, I will discuss 3 technologies that have the potential to be game changers in the learning industry.The first time I watched a 3D movie at the age of 12, I was mesmerized by the experience and literally tortured my parents to take me to that movie again and again. I was so much interested in 3D movies that I had to watch them alone as I grew up because my friends deemed such movies as fit for kids alone. I do blame my choice of movies though, as these movies were targeted at kids. But for me, it was the experience rather than the story, I would eagerly wait for those moments where I get to feel the objects closer to me, and a couple of occasions I have even chosen the front seats to check whether the experience doubles up (forgive my naivety). I loved the experience, and I am sure many would agree with me. Today, as a Learning and Development professional, I believe that learner experience plays a vital role in making our learning programs effective. And with the advent of new technologies like Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), we have the technology at our disposal to take the learning experience to such heights which we once dreamed of.

As we prepare for our return to school this fall, safety will mean a lot more than face masks and hand-washing. As controversy over if schools should reopen and, if so, how they will open continues to rise, the lingering concern is how to keep everyone safe. This is a familiar topic for educational institutions and something that appears to get tested over and over again. Fire drills, active shooter protocols, security glass, metal detectors—these measures are all designed to, yes, keep those precious souls within the building safe by keeping the threats out. What happens when you experience a pandemic and the threat cannot be visibly seen? Where do you hide? When do you hide? Who do you hide from? Will I get sick? Will I cause someone else to get sick?
