Learning Commons

What is a Learning Commons?

A Learning Commons is a common, or shared, learning space that is both physical and virtual.  A Learning Commons supports a student centred approach that emphasizes active and collaborative engagement and encourages the co-creation of knowledge by all learners.

May in the Learning Commons

So much to celebrate this month!  We have our Learning Commons decorated as a beach – complete with a dingy, beach towels, beach umbrellas and of course, a few palm trees.  We are enjoying reading in our tropical hideaway.  The beach theme came from our Destination Poetry project.

We are also having our first ever Gibson Book Awards.  The Goode Award – named after Mrs. Sue Goode – will be given to our favourite picture book.  The Gibson Award will be given to our favourite novel.  Voting takes place starting the week of May 22.  Stay tuned for the winners!
