International Symposium, 2. Dezember 1994
International experts of different disciplines presented their visions of future education in Germany for the first time. Accompanied by great public resonance, the Academy's symposium "CD-ROM and On-Line - Learning with the Computer" the discussion was about how school and education will develop and what tasks they will have to fulfil in the future?

The topic, so far underestimated by the public concerning its level of importance was actively transferred into the field of education. Speakers were from the fields of psychology, pedagogy, informatics and sociology as well as project manager of different learning initiatives. Among others Ralph Ballier, Bob Coates, Dietrich Dörner, Peter Glotz, Klaus Hefner, Ulrich Hegge, Reinhold Jäger, Lewis J. Perelman, Winfried Sommer und Peter Struck.
