What is a Learning Commons?
A Learning Commons is a library embracing 21st Century Skills. It's a physical and virtual space that allows students to be engaged and deepen their learning by critically thinking, problem-solving, collaborating, innovating and communicating. The goal is to broaden student learning beyond the classroom and community. For more information, visit the Alberta Education website.
