Is there a relationship between time spent learning using technology and fatigue or boredom diminishing the learning experience and Adult education? The societal factors of using technology are an important area of the education system in the world. Who really are learning? Does technology provide the necessary ingredients or proper ways for education of all in the society? A look into what constitute the means and how adult education can be improved is explored and emphasized in this work. The justification predicaments are discussed accordingly. The presumption as to who really are adults is also confirmed. It is discovered that we learn by quantum thinking, which means by looking at the world in a new way; and learning in a safe and secure environment. It may also be inferred that adults, not technology determine what is to be learned (Knowles. 1980). Education creates a foundation for the success of professionals. The education of the adults may be formal or informal. The combinations of formal and informal education are the major fundamental of adult professionalism and technology. The education obtained through informal education is the day to day observations or scanning of the environment or societal activities of the population. Informal education may be classified as knowledge or education obtained out of the classroom or out of the congregation of people. It is the education acquired through exploration of various paraphernalia of possible educational documentations or situations. The formal education obtained by many professionals and adults are classrooms-based, these may be through seminars or conferences. The basis for educating the professional adults is to update their skills because of changes in the society: Thus, this justified the purpose and the need for strategic educational planning (Knowles, 1980). With thorough explorations of various studies, we may conclude that there is a great relationship time spent using technology, fatigue or boredom that diminish learning experience and adult education.
