About The Learning Commons

The Learning Commons is more than a library and computer lab!

At the Learning Commons students can share, work, explore and inquire using all kids of materials and media.

Kingswood Public School's Learning Commons, "is a flexible and responsive approach to helping schools focus on learning collaboratively. It expands the learning experience, taking students and educators into virtual spaces beyond the walls of a school.

A Learning Commons is a vibrant, whole-school approach, presenting exciting opportunities for collaboration among teachers, teacher-librarians and students. Within a Learning Commons, new relationships are formed between learners, new technologies are realized and utilized, and both students and educators prepare for the future as they learn new ways to learn.

And best of all, as a space traditionally and naturally designed to facilitate people working together, a school’s library provides the natural dynamics for developing a Learning Commons." - Ontario School Library Association, 2010.
