From Library and Learning Space to Learning Commons

Presented by Beth Holland, EdTech Teacher and contributor to Education Week and Edutopia
Sponsored by Nureva


In the mobile era, what is the role of physical libraries and learning spaces when every student potentially has a global, virtual library in their pocket? How does ubiquitous access impact literacy and learning? While the fact that students need these skills may not change, the associated tasks certainly evolve and transform when they have access to technology. In this talk, we will explore how libraries and learning spaces can transform from archives of information to places of knowledge co-construction.
