What is a Learning Commons?

A Learning Commons is more than a library. It's a physical or virtual space that allows students to be engaged and deepen their learning by critically thinking, problem solving, collaborating, innovating and communicating. The goal is to broaden student learning beyond the classroom and community. For more information, visit the Alberta Education website
