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.

October Update

It has been all about International Dot Day 2019 in the Learning Commons this month.  We joined over 16 million people in 182 countries helping celebrate all that creativity inspires and invites. Our Dots are now up in the Learning Commons – if you get a chance, come and take a look.  The kids chose a word for the year for their Dots – something they hope to think about and inspire them for this year.  The words are thoughtful…and kind.  One of the best years so far in our Dot Journey.  😊
