What is a Learning Commons?

The concept of a Learning Commons involves more than a name change. It involves a change in space (re-arrangement of furniture and moving print materials from the center to the periphery, for example), a change from an information reserve to a processing center, a pedagogical shift from passive to active, and the move to a landscape of connectivity within the school and into the community. Yet some parents complain that students need to be studying not playing with games or playing a musical instrument in what was the traditional school library. Marathon High School has begun the process of exploring  how both aspects can be mutually inclusive for our students who will be entering a world of creation and connectivity and examining the benefits of transference to a Learning Commons. For more information on the concept and a district that has made this transference, please click here.

Events:
 

 

PROVEN: Strong high school library media programs-those with more certified, university-trained staff and staff hours, technology, and books-have more usage by high school students, and increased usage leads to higher academic achievement as measured by both the FCAT and the ACT.

The K-12 public school bibliographic database is now accessible at http://k12.floridalibraries.org through the College Center for Library Automation's online discovery tool.  In accordance with Section 47, ch. 2011-63, these resources have been made available so that school district students, staff and parents will be able to see all the library materials held in their local district schools as well as the school library holdings throughtout the state.  The site also allows patrons to see whether a book is at a public library and gives citations for students in American Psychological Association (APA), Modern Language Association (MLA) and Chicago formats for most materials.
