LD DIDACTIC GmbH supports a centre for applied learning in Lebanon
LD DIDACTIC, together with the Aurelius Refugee Initiative e.V., donated training and teaching equipment worth about 15,000 euros to a CECS (Continuing Education and Community Service) training centre for applied learning in the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon.
The CECS centre offers various courses to children and young people in school age as well as for adults. The topics include applied sciences, project management, English, engineering courses and computer courses. Most course participants come from Syria.
The centre is operated by the Lebanese organisation MAPS ("Multi-Aid Programs"). The German aid organisation Orienthelfer e.V., a non-profit organisation, has entirely financed the centre. One of its goals is the humanitarian support of the victims of the Syrian conflict. A large part of the Syrians seeking protection in Lebanon live in the Bekaa Valley, near the Syrian border. In addition to the obvious essential humanitarian support, the demand for educational offers is enormous.
The equipment focuses at the request of the centre management on engineering education. The training and teaching systems have arrived at the Centre and are already being used within practical workshops. The goal is to be able to offer practical and future oriented training programs. Therefore the equipment is used to train and teach young people and adults in fundamentals of automotive technology, microcontroller programming and regenerative energies. Furthermore children can discover and learn about renewable energies and their advantages through active experimentation.

LD DIDACTIC acquires ELWE Technik portfolio
LD DIDACTIC GmbH has acquired the ELWE Technik portfolio as well as the brand “ELWE Technik” in the fields of electrical engineering in training and vocational education. The acquisition of ELWE Technik will further strengthen LD DIDACTICs international market position as high-quality premium manufacturer of technical teaching systems and products for automotive and electrical engineering as well as in the field of renewable energy.
“Furthermore the internationally approved technical teaching systems will be distributed under the brand “ELWE Technik”. It will complement the LEYBOLD and Feedback product range for technical training systems for vocational education and universities perfectly”, Eric Blumenthal says.
The ELWE Technik product range will be distributed by LD DIDACTIC GmbH and their international agents as of September 2013. From today, manufacturing and further development of the teaching systems will be located in Huerth, the site of the LD DIDACTIC GmbH.
Worlddidac Award Sensor-CASSY 2 & CASSY Lab 2
Award for high degree of innovation and pedagogical value
The international jury of the global trade association for companies providing products for education and training, „Worlddidac", awarded the LEYBOLD interface for measurement data collection and evaluation CASSY Lab 2 with the coveted „Worlddidac Award." As part of the global trade fair for educational resources, „Worlddidac", which takes place between 24 and 26 October 2012 in Basel, both products will be presented to the international audience.
The Sensor-CASSY 2 is the interface for recording measurement data for all educational levels - from secondary school to university. Due to its flexible design it can be used as a desktop device and with demonstration frames as well. It is compatible with all CASSY sensor boxes and sensors and thus offers nearly unlimited opportunities for determining relevant parameters in experimental physics, chemistry and biology as well as in technical education. The intuitively operable software CASSY Lab 2 records and visualizes the measurement data and provides various analysis functions.
The key assessment criterion of the jury was the pedagogical value together with the product‘s high level of innovation. Aesthetics, environmental compatibility and user friendliness were also taken into account. Product evaluation was carried out in two phases: The jury of teachers, consisting of active teachers of different school types and representatives of different subject areas, performed the pre-evaluation. The second test and final evaluation was carried out by independent experts from different fields under the direction of Dr. Peter Gloor, professor at MIT in Boston.
„We are pleased that the unique combination of a high metrological standard and intuitive operation has convinced the jury", says Eric Blumenthal, Managing Director of LD DIDACTIC.
