Welcome To Mixed Reality. 2015 is going to be remembered as the year we entered an entirely new world, a world today known as Mixed Reality.
What is Mixed Reality? In short, Mixed Reality is the world which we now inhabit where real and virtual objects co-exist and can causally influence each other. In Mixed Reality persistent virtual objects can be created, seen, and manipulated and they exist and are perceived as integrated with the real world. Together with the Internet of Things where environmental objects embed computational elements, sensors, and connectivity, Mixed Reality will radically alter the way we interact with and think about the world.

It sounds like there exists two worlds one inside the school and the other outside.

There is a huge need for a total reformation of school systems and curriculums to better fit in the 21st century education.
