Frankfurt = Education + Innovation + Internationality

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 actors 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 2016 – Beacon of ideas

Klassenzimmerder Zukunft 2015 55021

The Classroom of the Future is characterised by innovation, interaction and creativity. Here, pupils, teachers, students and publishers can plunge into the education of the future. In 2016, the Classroom of the Future will once again offer exciting expeditions on current topics.
The interactive lessons allow for first-hand learning and discovery. For the first time, this year, the Classroom of the Future is offering supplementary learning materials, made available free of charge on various platforms. The project will also have 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.

This year, you’ll find the following topics in the Classroom of the Future:

  • Sciences / Technology and Art
  • Next-generation storytelling (journalistic formats)
  • Education for the senses

Books say welcome

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 will be continued in 2016: At the Frankfurt Book Fair 2016, exhibitors will present their "German as second/foreign language" as part of the new collective exhibition “Books say welcome” in Hall 3.1.
