​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.​​​

Learning Commons / Library

Thorncliffe School's Learning Commons is available for student book sign-out every morning and afternoon. The Learning Commons is also home to our Music Program in the mornings. In the afternoons, the Learning Commons is available for classroom or student use. Students have access to Macintosh desktop computers, a cart of twenty new Mac laptops, as well as iPads. Movable tables and portable technology make the space flexible and allow students and teachers to create working areas that are tailored to the demands of each learning task. Easy access to technology permits Thorncliffe students to personalize their learning, and to communicate in multiple ways.
