LEARNTEC is the leading international trade fair and convention for vocational education, learning and information technology and is scheduled to take place between 29 and 31 January 2013 at the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Center. It has been established for many years as the sector meeting place for e-learning providers and players in the field of vocational education and the focus of next year’s event will be on “Future Learning”.
Mobile learning, games and social learning: there is no mistaking the technological trends in the world of learning, and these developments are also reflected in the LEARNTEC 2013 motto: “Future Learning”. The convention is also dealing with topics from daily practice, including blended learning, the introduction of e-learning and virtual classrooms. Among the management themes covered, employer attractiveness, professional careers and performance management are areas of particular focus. A number of new fields will also be highlighted, including education for the “50+” generation, innovative interfaces and digital publishing.
LEARNTEC follows up on its success with highly relevant, up-to-date topics. LEARNTEC was rated as far and away the most important one among education fairs and conventions by MMB Learning Delphi 2012. A large majority of experts surveyed – 82 percent – considered LEARNTEC to be the go-to event for digital learning, while 89 percent of e-learning providers were of the same opinion.
According to PricewaterhouseCoopers’ “Global Entertainment and Media Outlook: 2012-2016” publication, digital learning media are set to grow by 12.1 percent annually over the next five years, whereas the non-digital media market is only expected to grow by 2.8 percent per year. This is why LEARNTEC will be featuring the debut of e-PUB@LEARNTEC, an interactive café that will serve as a meeting point for everyone dealing with digital learning media such as e-books and apps. All issues having to do with e-publishing will be up for discussion in a relaxed café atmosphere.
LEARNTEC 2013 once again has a wealth of highlights in store, with organisers being careful to ensure that there is a healthy mix. The event will kick off with two keynote addresses: Prof. Barbara Ischinger from the OECD will be talking about “Creating quality jobs by leveraging education, skills and migration”, while Prof. Dieter Kempf, CEO of Datev and President of BITKOM, for the first time serving as a conceptual partner to LEARNTEC, will be exploring learning scenarios for 2020. On the first day of the event, a high-calibre discussion group featuring Prof. Dr. Peter Vorderer and Prof. Dr. Gerhard de Haan will take a look at the topic of “digital relevance”, offering a counterweight to current theses about computers not benefitting the educational process. New York-based Colleen Macklin, an internationally renowned professor specialising in games, will be brought on board for the Wednesday programme, while the final day will once again be devoted to the issue of motivation, as successful trainer Dr. Frädrich will be showing ways to escape from demotivation. During LEARNTEC, Karlsruhe Trade Fair Center will also be playing host to the Baden-Württemberg media day, which is focusing on “The role of mobile media in children’s media”.
The 21st LEARNTEC is to take place at Karlsruhe Trade Fair Center from 29 January to 31 January 2013.
The Serious Sports project aims to develop a digital sports game and reusable framework that will offer sports/fitness coaches the opportunity to simulate the physical conditioning, training content and structure in different (training) seasons for a European-wide sparring sport.
The project will seek to provide resources and self-assessment techniques as part of this digital sports game to support coaches, vocational teachers and others involved in sports through game based learning and reinforcement techniques.
The project also intends to research, enhance and promote the use of game based learning in all areas of sport and support the recognition and evaluation of social, communication and organizational skills acquired in all possible learning scenarios.

The first list of keynote speakers for the 2013 EDEN Annual Conference unveiled right before the Holiday season includes Prof. Sugata Mitra, Dr. Bernard Luskin, Anna Kirah, Ana Carla Pereira, and a representative of the Norwegian Nobel Committee.
Prof. Sugata Mitra is Professor of Educational Technology at the School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences at Newcastle University, UK. He is best known for his "Hole in the Wall" experiment, and widely cited in works on literacy and education. Prof. Mitra is a leading proponent of Minimally Invasive Education, a solution that uses the power of collaboration and the natural curiosity of children to catalyze learning. During his most known experiment, 'Hole in the Wall' conducted first in 1999, a computer was placed in a kiosk created within a wall in a slum at Kalkaji, Delhi and children were allowed to use it freely. The experiment aimed at proving that children could be taught by computers very easily without any formal training. This experiment inspired Vikas Swarup, an Indian diplomat to write Q & A, the novel adapted into the multiple Oscar-winning movie Slumdog Millionaire. See his TED talk on the experiment here.
Dr. Bernard Luskin, President-Elect for the American Psychological Association (APA) Media Psychology Division is widely known for his major study 'Media Psychology and New Technology'. Dr Luskin was central to the launch of Jones International University, the first accredited fully online university in the USA and the Mind Extension University, a precursor for many of the online university programs of today, including what are now being called emerging MOOC strategies. Read his blog 'The Media Psychology Effect' featured on 'Psychology Today'.

She served previously as a design anthropologist for MSN leading field and laboratory research, national and international, intended to influence software and service designs to improve humans’ interaction with technology.

About the Conference
E-learning, open and distance education have been important fields of intellectual excitement and innovative development. Challenges posed by the new technologies are permanent, and students constantly keep teachers under pressure to develop. Individual and collective motivation, enhancement of the learning experience and overall improvement of learning quality are gaining ever-increasing traction.
How can we do our best to make learning a thrilling experience for learners, including providing a sense of joy in the virtual classroom?
The EDEN 2013 Conference will discover and present the latest best practice in this field, share progressive concepts, inventive solutions, and promote joint-thinking and collaboration.

The eXchange provides an opportunity for L&D practitioners who are visiting the show to directly meet the conference speakers to exchange practical ideas and experiences around themes being discussed in the conference.
A chance to get up close and personal with conference speakers!
The feedback that we received last year was unanimous: What a great idea! Like all great ideas, it's simple and straight forward, but incredibly effective. Each eXchanges will take the form of an informal, face-to-face group conversation looking at answers to practical questions that will stimulate innovation and creativity in learning and development. The eXchanges will last over an hour and their USP is that each one will be lead by an industry-leading expert who is speaking at the conference.
Every eXchange will give you unprecendented access to much respected industry leaders and conference speakers. Here's your moment to air your questions, problems and even solutions to your e-learning colleagues.
