VS at didacta 2018

Inspiring learning spaces: Furniture, media, technology

To the overview

What is the right room for learning? This is the question that VS Vereinigte Spezialmöbelfabriken addresses at the didacta 2018 education trade fair in Hanover. From 20th to 24th February, German's leading supplier of school furniture and equipment will be demonstrating how to design all-embracing concepts for learning spaces. The integration of digital media and technology plays a major role here. Examples of this type of “Inspiring Learning Space” can be found in the two VS stands in Hall 13.

Media concepts for digital learning

At stand C97, visitors can find “VS – Das Systemhaus”, a specialist in integrating digital media in schools and teaching environments. As a premium partner to prestigious manufacturers (Microsoft, SMART, Promethean and others), “VS – Das Systemhaus” offers the right solution for every school application: from networked classrooms through interactive teachers' workplaces and on to digital administration.

And the best thing of all: With VS, everything comes from a single supplier. The experts from “VS – Das Systemhaus” plan and roll out concepts for digital learning spaces in the light of each school's individual requirements. They provide support during the choice of interactive displays and boards, including peripheral devices and carrier systems. And they guarantee secure installation and ever-ready service, including training.


Room and furniture concepts for greater differentiation

A key focus of modern teaching is to facilitate individual learning approaches and autonomous working. This requires rooms where the teaching approach can be adapted to each individual situation. And learning spaces such as this are possible thanks to VS's flexible furniture and media concepts.

At stand C32, a classroom is organized as a “learning workshop” – with working offices, team and group workplaces, as well as mobile displays and presentation walls to support the students' work. The multifunctional “market place” is the ideal central location for learning groups and multi-class projects. The newly developed “FloorFriends” elements support floor-level learning by making the available space even more versatile in primary schools and lower grade, as well as in spaces where students spend their free time or receive support. In the areas devoted to “Workplaces for Teachers” and the “Teachers' Lounge”, teaching staff will be able to discover ideas for their working spaces and team rooms.

Experience versatile learning spaces with VR

In VS's VR Lab at stand C32, visitors will also be able to experience learning space concepts in virtual reality. Wearing data glasses, they can move around the virtual space, see it from different perspectives or reorganize it. In this way, they can experience at first hand the effect of versatile learning spaces and the potential they possess for contemporary teaching approaches.


The ergonomically designed fun product to take away with you

A long-standing product present at every didacta is the Hokki active stool. Because it is so healthy to sit on, it has been singled out as an outstandingly back-friendly product by the Aktion Gesunder Rücken e.V. (AGR / Healthy Backs Campaign). And this year, Hokki will be there again – in many different sizes and colours at the special trade fair price at the Hokki sales booth (13/C97).
