Exploring the Learning Commons Concept

BCTLA Summer Institute 2012

The ‘work’ of the Learning Commons is to facilitate and lead a new culture of learning that truly addresses the needs of 21st Century learners and teachers. The Learning Commons supports school wide inquiry and critical and creative thinking while fostering ‘habits of mind’ and ‘learning dispositions’ conducive to success.

In our day together we will explore how the Learning Commons can:

  • Lead in the design of excellent learning experiences
  • Foster a collaborative school culture
  • Design and re-design physical and virtual learning environments
  • Contribute to school improvement
