Transforming learning spaces with new locker-based concepts

At didacta 2018, locker expert Mietra is looking for schools to pilot its new dual-use learning zone concepts for students and teachers - entirely cost-free for one year.

In an ideal world, students and teachers alike should enjoy spending time at school. This is particularly likely if schools go beyond learning and teaching to create a sociable environment with a pleasant atmosphere. Mietra masters the challenge created by new pedagogical concepts and the increasing number of full-day schools with its new multipurpose solutions that ensure lockers not only look good, but also enhance learning space layout. The company has spent more than 20 years developing high-quality solutions aimed at taking the weight off students' backs. Its TÜV-certified lockers, which cover a vast range of applications, are also specially designed and proven to reduce the fire load in corridors and classrooms by preventing fire spreading from one locker to the next, even if they are crammed full or an explosion occurs inside one.

At didacta 2018, Mietra is showcasing traditional small and large lockers together with entirely new special room designs for teaching and breaks, which besides introducing order and structure into the school day have some additional tricks up their sleeves. The lockers double up for use by students and teachers in a wide range of school scenarios as seating options for learning and quiet zones, lecterns for individual and group work, table tops and presentation surfaces for students' work and displays, counters and room dividers - besides providing classic lockable storage for satchels and rucksacks. Any schools interested in new room design solutions are warmly invited to drop by the Mietra stand at didacta 2018 in Hannover. If any further incentive is needed, the company is looking for schools to pilot its two new locker-based learning space concepts, who will get to try them out for one year entirely cost-free. The low monthly rental rate for the lockers will only kick in once the test phase has been completed.
