Learning Commons News
Alberta Education explains a Library Learning Commons as an inclusive, flexible, learner-centred, physical or virtual space for collaboration, inquiry, imagination, and play.
As schools change, school libraries must also evolve from simply providing information to students to engaging students and helping prepare them to become critical thinkers, evaluators, users, and creators of information and knowledge.
In addition to providing access to traditional forms of knowledge like books, periodicals, and print information, students have access to other forms of media and devices they will need to create and share.
At present, our Library Learning Commons has a Building Christian Character Centre, manipulatives to create, team build, explore and play, Chromebooks and other related resources to stimulate young minds.
Please feel free to come in and see the changes we are making.
