Augmented reality and virtual reality have transformed several industry sectors and education is no exception. The adoption of augmented reality and virtual reality in education will lead to the development of multiple applications to improve the learning experience of students.

Additionally, attention spans of children born in the age of digital technology are decreasing rapidly.
