Learning Commons Policy (2014):
To support students in attaining the goals and standards as stated in the Ministerial Order on Student Learning, school authorities must ensure that students have access to a learning commons. A learning commons is an inclusive, flexible, learner-centred, physical and/or virtual space for collaboration, inquiry, and imagination and play to expand and deepen learning.

Wonderful to have the Alberta School Learning Commons Policy released! It has been a long process and we are thankful that it is now policy. See the policy statement and link to the Guidelines. This is presented on page 21 and 69 of Alberta Education’s 2014/2015 Guide to Education.
