Learning in 2026: What the Adult Learner can Expect

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been heads down on Watson re-branding at work, my literature review on AI in learning and talking future edtech in my Producing Media for Learning class. The timing couldn’t be better. I’m fully immersed in future tech and it’s impact on learning experiences and outcomes.

So, what will adult education look like 10 and 20 years from now? Only time will tell– or…AI

The outcome of this class discussion was to create a media project illustrating a day in the life: 2026 or 2046. I chose the adult learner, year 2026 and used Thinglink, to highlight some of my ideas.

I had never used Thinglink before but found it to be very user friendly. Editing was fairly straight forward and the tool options, fun. My only complaint was deleting text in the text box. If I highlighted a section and hit delete on my keyboard, the page would go back and refresh. I found this frustrating because it seemed to always happen before I had the chance to save. I’m not sure if it was a browser / IOS issue or something on their end.  

Either way, I will likely use the tool again. I think it would be cool to create a some sort of virtual tour and add interactions within ThingLink. Does anyone have any experience creating virtual tours? If so, I’d love to hear about any recommendations you may have!
