International experts discuss technology enhanced lifelong learning
On June 29th and 30st scientists and professionals from all over the world will meet in Berlin to exchange experiences concerning digital learning along the entire education chain. Discussions and talks will start with early learning, comprise higher education and additional training as well as informal education.
The conference will be among the first events to discuss digital learning from a truly international perspective taking into account culturally diverse learning approaches and digitization strategies from different countries. The conference will be hosted by the Leibniz Association and organized by the Global Learning Council (GLC). GLC brings together leaders from the global academic, industry and for-profit sectors. The aim is to develop standards, ethics, and protocols that promote collaboration and scale up best practices for technology enhanced learning.
At the conference the following questions will be discussed:
- How can we acknowledge cultural differences and enable diverse learning approaches?
- What’s more promising: research based implementation step by step or “quick and dirty” digitization strategies?
- Is “bring your own device” the gold standard in digitizing education?
- How can we make digitization affordable for the established education providers and the users?
- Which business models do we need? How can leapfrogging and frugal innovation enable digital learning especially in developing countries?
- Scalability at all costs? How can we balance quality and scalability of digital learning programs?
- How can we make digital learning not only available, but also good?
You are cordially invited to take part in the conference. For you accreditation please send an e-Mail to: email@example.com
Experts to the questions above are available for interviews. We’ll be happy to schedule an appointment. For identifying experts please see the program: http://www.globallearningcouncil.org/events/2017-glc-summit/
Side events and exhibition
Next to cutting edge talks and discussions there will be the opportunity for hands on experience concerning the digital future:
- Prior to the GLC Summit the “Student Challenge: Reinventing Education in the Digital Era” will take place. The challenge organized by the Hochschulforum Digitalisierung (HFD, German Forum for Higher Education in the Digital Age) is a 4-day journey built around a main workshop where a selected group of students will become part of a team of innovators and collaboratively think about the future of education, co-designing scenarios that describe what education could look like in the years to come. The Student Challenge starts at 5:00 pm on June 27th.
- The Yes! - Young Economic Summit is a platform for high school students. They concern themselves with global problems in the realm of economy, policy, society and environment. They aim to find innovative solutions in order to create the world the youth of today wants to live in tomorrow. Yes! will be presented by two of it’s members at the dinner reception at 6:30 pm on June 29th.
- Furthermore there will be an exhibition presenting technical solutions for digital learning, but also digital solutions supporting elderly persons to stay agile and healthy. The exhibition will be open throughout the conference.
The Global Learning Council Summit 2017 is co-organized by acatech – National Academy of Science and Engineering, DAAD – German Academic Exchange Service, Deutsche Telekom Stiftung, Fraunhofer Society, Hochschulforum Digitalisierung, HRK – German Rector’s Conference, Leibniz Association and Stifterverband.

The Leibniz Association
The Leibniz Association connects 91 independent research institutions that range in focus from the natural, engineering and environmental sciences via economics, spatial and social sciences to the humanities. Leibniz Institutes address issues of social, economic and ecological relevance. They conduct knowledge-driven and applied basic research, maintain scientific infrastructure and provide research-based services. The Leibniz Association identifies focus areas for knowledge transfer to policy-makers, academia, business and the public. Leibniz institutions collaborate intensively with universities – in the form of “Leibniz ScienceCampi” (thematic partnerships between university and non-university research institutes), for example – as well as with industry and other partners at home and abroad.
They are subject to an independent evaluation procedure that is unparalleled in its transparency. Due to the importance of the institutions for the country as a whole, they are funded jointly by the Federation and the Länder, employing some 18,700 individuals, including 9,500 researchers. The entire budget of all the institutes is approximately 1.8 billion Euros.

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
