​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

Our Learning Commons

The Learning Commons is a focal point of McKenzie Highlands School and will be actively used by students throughout the day to complete and extend classroom learning tasks as well as pursue personal interests. The Learning Commons support a diversity of learning styles and provides access to a variety of physical and digital resources and technology. The Learning Commons represents “a shift in thinking from a library as physical space that is a repository of books, to an inclusive, flexible, learner-centred, physical and/or virtual space for collaboration, inquiry, imagination and play to expand and deepen learning.” (Alberta Education, 2015, Guide to Education, p. 77.) Students will have access to the Learning Commons anytime a supervisor is available.
