Increase in the number of mixed reality classrooms
The popularity of the concept of mixed reality labs in classrooms will drive the growth of this market in the education sector. Vendors are emphasizing on the inclusion of mixed reality labs in the market. One such vendor is zSpace. The company provides onsite MR labs to many K-12 schools. For instance, one such school working with zSpace is the Utica Community School.
According to Jhansi Mary, a lead analyst at Technavio for education technology research, “With the products provided by zSpace, students work in groups of two. The students work on zSpace's all in one desktop computer systems. The two students work in collaboration with each other wherein the students can simultaneously draw 3D images visible through the zSpace smart glasses. Using these glasses and a stylus, students can work in collaboration with each other. As a result, students are subjected to a high degree of engagement through exploration and experiential learning.”
Increasing demand for experiential learning
The concept of MR is a mix between VR and AR technologies. It enables students to enter a virtual environment that is overlaid on the physical environment. The technology of mixed reality is very successful in museums and the construction sector, and this technology can easily be translated to schools and colleges. The technology provides a good medium for experiential learning. This system allows the students to easily interact with the objects created in the 3D space and work in collaboration with each other in complex scenarios. Different vendors in the market are focusing on providing MR hardware and software for educational purposes.
“The development of self-contained, holographic computer by Microsoft will revolutionize the education sector. Using this system, students gain a better understanding of complex subjects. MR projects a virtual image or video based on a real-world scenario, which helps in providing experiential learning to the students. The use of simulation-based devices will fuel the interactive group work among students,” says Jhansi.
Increased affordability of mixed reality hardware
The companies in the market are focusing on the development of technologies and a better production scale to reduce the cost of MR accessories. The cost reduction of these devices will boost their usage in the global market. The recent technological innovations will enable the mixed reality experience at an affordable price. The vendors are partnering with educational institutions to use MR tools for teaching and training individuals in the field of construction, nursing, and engineering.
