The new Education Area at Frankfurter Buchmesse

 

Frankfurt EDU is the new international platform for the education industry, featuring innovative concepts, content and technologies. Come to experience the latest trends in the future of learning. How will people learn in the future? What technologies will be used? Will learning get easier and, if so, how? Frankfurt EDU offers answers to these and similar questions.

 

Where education meets culture - some highlights

The future of learning

School 4.0

What will learning look like in the future? Which educational technologies will future generations need in order to successfully meet the challenges of the 21st century? And what dangers do they pose? What are the new opportunities for lifelong learning? At Frankfurt EDU, you can find the answers, gain impressions, and more.

Gamification

Apps, digitalisation, digital assistants and 3D techniques not only make learning more entertaining – they also make it more effective. Teaching educational content in a game scenario helps students to better understand and retain what they have learned. Next stop: digital school?

Augmented & Virtual Reality

Immersive EdTech technologies have enormous potential not only for educational institutions, but also for businesses. Technology giants such as Apple, Google and Microsoft are investing in the development of augmented reality or virtual reality. As the cost of these tools decreases and their quality improves, educators are increasingly integrating these technologies into their curriculum.

Start-ups

New educational technologies cannot do without innovative players such as educational companies and start-ups. What does the market situation look like and what opportunities does the industry offer for newcomers?
