One of XR’s proposed beneficiaries is the world of education. XR has a logical place in visceral learning, training, knowledge retention, and compelling experiences for students as we’ve discussed with innovators like Lifeliqe and Facebook.
With that backdrop, the Realities 360 conference comes to San Jose, June 26-28, to explore opportunities and happenings at the intersection of AR, VR and education. And its not just academic education but the broader world of immersive learning, such as enterprise training.

Here’s more from the conference organizers. We hope to see you there:
“The immersive technology market continues to evolve at a rapid pace. Over $6 billion has been invested in AR, VR, and related technologies since 2012; this has fueled a transformation in how we will interact with media. The changes will open up huge opportunities for education and training, but they will also introduce new questions and challenges. It’s critical that we understand this evolving landscape before we take our first steps.
In this keynote, you will explore the growing landscape of immersive technology. Starting with the adage of “follow the money,” you will examine investments into these technologies and then dig deeper to see how actual platforms are evolving in both the consumer and enterprise spaces. You will also be exposed to information including hardware sales figures and survey data to gain an understanding of what the short-term and long-term opportunities are for learning and development.”
