The Frankfurt Book Fair is also an important international platform for educational media of all kinds: More than 1,000 publishers, technology suppliers, service providers and other player from the educational field gather here to do business, to network, to find new trends at the many publishing events around the Fair days.
The Classroom of the Future is characterised by innovation, interaction and creativity.
Here, pupils, teachers, students and publishers can immerse themselves in the education of the future. In 2016, the Classroom of the Future once again offered exciting expeditions on current topics.
The interactive lessons allow for first-hand learning and discovery. For the first time, the Classroom of the Future offered supplementary learning materials, made available free of charge on various platforms. The project also had a brand new look at the Frankfurt Book Fair: a black-and-white design, which will become increasingly colourful through creativity and ingenuity over the course of the week of the fair.
In 2016, the following topics were featured in the Classroom of the Future:

Starting on the International Literacy Day in 2015, the German Publishers & Booksellers Association, the Frankfurt Book Fair and LitCam introduced a joint initiative for refugees with the slogan “Books say welcome”. With the help of donations from the book trade, reading and learning corners are created in order to give refugees quick and easy access to educational and reading material. The project was continued in 2016: At the Frankfurt Book Fair 2016, exhibitors presented their "German as second/foreign language" as part of the new collective exhibition “Books say welcome” in Hall 3.1.
