​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.​​​

The Learning Commons supports the total school philosophy by providing a wide variety of materials (both print and non-print), equipment and services to students and teachers. This is a center for inquiry where students may develop their critical thinking skills, to effectively use multi-media resources in a maker space, to think creatively, to practice decision making skills and to assimilate knowledge.

Technology instruction is integrated into all curricular areas within the classroom setting and is an essential tool for teaching and learning. We are a wireless learning environment so that students and teachers can access technology throughout the building. As we likely know from our own experiences with the digital world, past practices of restricting and controlling access to digital media are shrinking and with that trend comes the need to educate students on the ethical and responsible use of technologies. 

The term “digital citizenship” is now used to define the important element of the use of technology by everyone. As a CBE school, Royal Oak School is committed to the education and modeling of this practice for all users. For more information, please see and Digital Citizenship Plan and Acceptable Use Policy.
