About Learning 321:

Learning 321 is the term  I use to describe education in the 3rd decade of the 21st century,  driven by Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and other current transformational technologies such as the Internet of Things, 5G, 3D printing, Blockchain and AR/VR.

I have been an academic for more than 50 years having seen the education systems and processes transform through several stages of ‘ chalk and talk’ to the use of OHP with acetate sheets, followed by PowerPoint to use of SmartBoards, and global education with LMS such as webCT, Blackboard, Wiziq and others. Then satellite based education facilitated in India by EDUSAT, and then Internet based conferencing with Skype, Google Hangouts, WebEx and Zoom. With my long innings in EdTech enabled education, I am fortunate in having directly first hand experienced the power and limitations of these. So far, all technologies in education have facilitated the broadcast model with recent successful MOOCs having touched millions of students.

In the year 2008, my elder son Gaurav introduced me to a book by Clayton Christensen with the title “ Disrupting Class” drew my attention to the fact that the desirable disruptive manifestation of technology in education is the personalisation of learning. This was also the optimistic expectation of Benjamin Bloom, which he articulated as ‘the 2 σ’ problem. Ten years later we have been able to move towards greater personal choice in the landscape of learning, and can have reasonable expectation that the new learning driven by Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning will lead to greater personalisation of learning.

In January 2016, Klaus Schwab drew attention to the arrival of the 4th Industrial Age, and during the last 2 years we have been studying its implications for the future of education. In 2017, the MIT Press published a book with title “ Robot-Proof: Higher education in the age of Artificial Intelligence”. In the same year in July 2017 my younger son Herschel wrote and directed a play “ Beyond Singularity” which in a humorous and light hearted way, drew attention to situations when humanoids could have emotions.

There is a separate page on this website devoted to each of these tracks.
