Do we learn to improve our working memory capacity without sitting WM tests?

Working memory capacity can be measured, but I wondered whether the only way to improve it is learning techniques for working memory tests (such as the digit span test)? I think I remember that working memory capacity is relatively stable in adulthood and reaches that level at a relatively young age in childhood. So I'm asking whether general education improves our WMC, not for supposed brain training techniques.
