Leading into the Future with Learning Commons


The learning commons, when designed collaboratively and with purpose becomes the hub of the school. A place where inquiry-based learning is promoted for students, teachers, parents and community members. The learning commons, while continuing to foster a thriving culture of literacy, also embraces makerspaces, and elements of design thinking as a powerful way to engage out students. The development of competencies is fostered by the learning and activities that can take place in this space.  

To support awareness and understanding of the Alberta Education Learning Commons Policy and Guidelines and to provide direction for the transformation of a library to a learning commons, we developed a video series with accompanying learning guides for your use.
