whatech | March 15, 2019

The way in which students learn while attending school is changing. Many classrooms and learning institutions now utilize artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual reality (VR), two key markets which are analyzed in the following reports. It's no secret that students who excel at school are more likely to succeed with their respective career than their counterparts who perform poorly at school. As a result, some schools and learning institutions are investing heavily in innovative new technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual reality (VR) to create a more effective and enjoyable learning experience for their students.According to the National Center for Education Statistics, there are over 100,000 public schools in the United States. Of course, this doesn't account for private schools. While the exact number of private schools is unknown, some sources suggest that are over 100,000 private schools in the country. In recent years, both public and private schools have been investing in AI and VR technology. While AI and VR technology is still relatively new, it's already opening the doors to new learning opportunities for countless students in the United States as well as the rest of the world.
