Learnetic as a new member of the IPA Education Publishers Forum
Together with other key players of educational publishers within the Education Publishers Forum (EPF), we will work to build smarter generations. We hope to bring valuable experience in the area of implementing digital solutions in education.
What is the IPA Educational Publishers Forum?
The Educational Publishers Forum, organized by the International Publishers Association (IPA)* in 2009, is a unique Forum that brings together professional educational (K-12) publishers worldwide. The purpose of the Forum is to share experiences regarding the evolution of learning resources, especially the application of technology and its impact on classroom pedagogy. The Forum tracks educational publishing and digital learning developments and has established links with international agencies, including the European Commission, OECD, UNESCO, WIPO and the World Bank. IPA-EPF has the potential to be the leading global Forum for debate about the evolution of effective learning resources.
We identify our publishing activity with the key message from the EPF members: “Our contribution to education goes far beyond delivering content. We adapt and blend the latest digital trends and technology to deliver solutions that work best in the classroom.”
Close cooperation with K-12 educational publishers
Within the organization’s framework, we will closely cooperate with our current partners and other publishers, including Verlag Jugend & Volk (Austria), Mozaik (Hungary), Klett (Germany), Vicens Vives (Spain), Abrelivros (Brazil), Avita (Estonia) or Cornelsen (Germany).
Key activities: converting statistical data to customized digital product
Together with EPF, we will share perspectives on new projects in individual countries and work to refine policies about publishers’ role, function and value and professionally developed learning resources. We have access to the Forum’s statistical data on the learning resources markets in individual countries, which will help us to deliver appropriate platforms, learning management systems and other digital solutions.
