"didacta will take a critical look at how digital media are finding their way into teaching and learning, for example by means of tablets, and what impact they are having or can have," explains Reinhard Koslitz, Managing Director of the Didacta Association in Darmstadt. According to a recent survey by the Allensbach Institute, 35 percent of primary school teachers and 46 percent of secondary school teachers favour the use of digital media. "Deploying technology in the classroom hinges on having a complex set of conditions in place first. didacta 2015 will shed a lot of light on everything involved."
Wilmar Diepgrond, Chairman of the Educational Media Association, Frankfurt/Main, emphasizes the ongoing development of teaching materials and underscores the role of didacta as an event to enlighten educators: "didacta is the leading event for the education sector. School teachers and instructors can gather information about analogue and digital products and discover how these can be made part of classroom teaching. Teaching staff should take this opportunity to enter into dialogue with educational publishers about the latest didactic innovations and trends. With its extensive line-up of talks, workshops and political debates, didacta is also unparalleled when it comes to educating the educators."
