Vast amounts of technological developments in this 21st Century has widened the gap between the teaching methodologies and the student’s technological way of life, resulting in lack of interest and motivation towards the learning processes, leading to superficial understanding of the concepts and in turn raising a need for new teaching and learning approaches to meet the changing living & learning styles and industry skill requirements. With the oncoming of the Covid pandemic, the above challenges were highlighted more when all the learning institutions saw a migration to online learning tools & resources in delivering uninterrupted flow of quality education to the learners from the comfort of their homes. Therefore, to slowly bring back life to normal and to prepare the students as well as the educational institutions for such times in the future, a lot of research is going into looking for different modes of instructional delivery and learning environments to deliver quality, substantial and lifelong conceptual understandings which can be customized to address the set of challenges, such as lack of collaboration, exchange of ideas and opinions among learners and lower motivation & engagement, in any circumstances. To address these challenges and create a holistic, enhanced technology infused learning environment, this research seeks to take up David Kolb’s Experiential Learning Model (ELM) as its theoretical framework and various online, offline and immersive tools and technologies to sustain student interest and motivation and thereby creating an engaging student learning framework that can be a guide for the educators to build constructivist and tech led learning classrooms. For this, a thorough study of the literature related to the theory, present classroom challenges and technologies will be undertaken followed by development of a prototype for the testing of the created framework, followed by a mixed mode methodology, including surveys, questionnaires and interviews, for data collection and analysis, and ending with recommendations, conclusions and the final framework as the end solution for the raised learning gaps and issues.
