– Of the areas often named for XR applicability, education is among the most impactful.
   – Among other things, immersive content can enhance memory recall and student interest.
– This concept applies in both the classroom and the corporation, given functions like training. 
– In all cases, XR can both enhance and augment legacy learning formats. 
– All the above takes an additional step forward with recent inflections in AI. 
   – For example, generative AI can unlock students' creativity and teachers' capabilities.
– AI also gets us closer to the holy grail of education: personalized learning
   – By evaluating and adapting to individual needs, curriculum can be optimized per student.
– And as XR and AI continue to converge, their combined state amplifies the possibilities.
   – For example, AI could give AR the ability to conjure educational 3D models on the fly.
