We are being forced to question our own mortality as our relationship with technology deepens. The Learning and Development community will play a fundamental role in helping people develop themselves to understand and co-exist with technology. This will be a progressive shift, but we will decide the speed and direction we will take to achieve this co-existence. At the current rate of innovation, this may well be our generations legacy to humanity.

For example, mobile-learning apps, polling software, next-generation learning management systems, virtual classrooms, learning video platforms, massive open online courses (MOOCs) to name just a few. However, the L&D leaders must unsure that learning technologies fit into the overall system architecture including functionality to support the overall talent cycle, onboarding, performance management real-time feedback tools, career management, succession planning, recognition and rewards.
