Smitha has been chosen as one of the pilot schools in CCSD to transform the library media center into a learning commons. A learning commons is best described as:
1) A full-service learning, research, and project space
2) A flexible environment built to accommodate multiple learning activities
3) Bringing together the functions of libraries, labs, lounges, and seminar areas
4) Empowering active and collaborative learning and a participatory culture
5) Inviting students to devise their own approaches to their work and to transfer what they learn in one course to the work they do for another,” (Educause,2011).
Therefore, we would like to gather input from our parents to help us determine how we can better serve your students and create the learnings commons model here at Smitha for next year.
Please take a moment to complete the short survey below.
