The educational landscape represents perhaps one of the most valuable areas of focus for XR companies today. For years, we’ve been looking for ways to empower and support a new generation of digitally savvy learners. However, it is fair to say that the demand for new innovative technologies in education has increased significantly since the pandemic.
Over the past two years, the lack of access to in-person and traditional education opportunities for students and employees in training has prompted a focus on XR for education.
With augmented reality, students can bring graphics, graphics, and digital content into the real world, where they can interact with and explore each resource. With mixed reality, teachers can use holographic images and environments to enhance education, allowing medical students to interact with virtual organs in the real world. In virtual reality, students can even travel to different places and times, without leaving a room.
Of course, to create these experiences, we first need XR companies that can provide the unique environments that education teams are looking for.
Here are some of the vendors currently making waves in this space. Some are finalists for this year’s education and training award at this month’s XR Awards 2022.
