The International Publishers Association, in association with the Publishers Association UK and the London Book Fair, presented the third annual IPA Education Conference on 16 April, at Olympia Conference Centre, West London.
Like its predecessors, 'What Works?’ 2015 was a great success. The day-long program featured 22 speakers from Australia, Brazil, China, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Singapore, UK and USA, making presentations, taking part in panels and discussing what it takes to create successful polices and resources and how to deliver them via appropriate technologies in the educational sphere.

Over 140 attendees and speakers from more than 30 countries heard representatives from the World Bank, and the UK Interactive Entertainment Association, as well as publishers, policy makers, and cutting-edge researchers from around the world looking at how best to deliver different kinds of information in a classroom for maximum effect, and what resources are most needed.
Due to the success of the first three ‘What Works?’ conferences, we will put on another one next year. ‘What Works?’ #4 will again take place in London on 11 April, 2016, the day after the IPA Congress and the day before the beginning of the London Book Fair. Save that date!
