The Learning Commons

Watch these videos and see how Alberta School Libraries are moving towards the Learning Commons.

The Learning Commons in BC

This video is a collaboration of several Vancouver schools, the Irving K Barber Learning Centre at UBC, Reel Youth and the Libraries and Literacy Branch. The administrators, teacher-librarians and IKBLC staff were open and welcoming and generously shared their wisdom, expertise and experiences with others. This video reflects the depth, complexity and creativity that are integral to library programs for learners of all ages. It helps to explain where the future will take us. Even as more libraries move to the learning commons model, there is much to be done; library users will continue to look to libraries as a trustworthy, reliable source of information. It is our hope that this video helps demonstrate the role of the learning commons in guiding and shaping the learning experience of the 21st century. We also hope that it helps inspire strong supports for the role of the learning commons and the information/digital literacy professionals in schools everywhere.
