ASB Learning Commons is an educational sharing space for collaboration, content creation, readings and study. It replaces the concept of a “Traditional Library” by expanding its uses in form and function. ASB Learning Commons’ mission is to inspire and support its users towards creative and intellectual achievement while responsibly and ethically learning the value of information, its acquisition, and its usage. Learning Commons includes a maker space equipped with materials that provide an opportunity for students to explore and tinker. The physical space is flexible and is blended with the virtual world adapting to meet the needs of individuals and group study.
The help desk is supported by an Information Curator and Coach to meet the needs of students from reading, researching or producing multimedia. The Learning Commons houses a wide collection of databases, ebooks and print books to engage students in critical thinking and developing sophisticated literacy and information technology skills. Students are expected to use this space and materials respectfully in a way that supports their interests.Click on the iCommons website to get to the Elementary Information Commons
