​Learning Commons at the CBE

Today’s learners cannot imagine life without the internet and supporting technology. The concept of the traditional library is changing to include technology, online tools and spaces for collaboration and exploration.​​​

Our Learning Commons

As we work together to build 21st century learning skills such as collaboration, creation and communication, we recognize the importance of creating a whole-school environment to support these goals. The Learning Commons will be a dynamic physical and virtual hub of learning at Robert Thirsk. This bright setting accommodates a variety of areas for you to

work in as individuals or in groups. You will have access to a rich environment of existing and emerging technologies, along with print, electronic, and human resources, to support your investigation and innovation. We look forward to creating a vibrant learning place with students and staff talking, searching, experimenting, exploring and collaborating
together.
