​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

Woodman School, with the generous support of the school council, is increasing English-French print and digital resources in the school library.  Use the library regularly during class and lunch times.  Teachers will also schedule a bi-weekly visit to the library during English or French classes. Students may borrow books for a two-week period and must show their student lanyard / barcode to the library assistant in order to borrow books.  Later in the fall, the Learning Commons will be open during the second half of lunch on several days of the school week for the purpose of signing out books. Some books are labelled as more appropriate for older adolescents; however, the school does not restrict selection of print resources for students who demonstrate interest in the subject matter.  All book selections are made through following CBE guidelines and are ordered through approved vendors.  

The technology in the Learning Commons is intended to be used for educational purposes only; students are requested to use their personally owned electronic devices should they wish to play games or watch videos for personal interest. There is zero tolerance for students eating or drinking in the Library/ Learning Commons; lunch bags must be placed at the door upon entrance.

RT @Indigenous_cbe: Today is fall equinox - a time when daylight & nighttime share the sky equally. Today is also Treaty 7 Day - the 144th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 7. The 🌞 & 🌙s equality today teaches us how to honour the treaty...by walking together in equal partnership. #welcomeoko https://t.co/7nUdmGVAVL
