Learning Commons Defined: The difference of a library and a learning commons may look small but it is indeed a larger change then the first glance might see, a learning commons has advanced technology usage meaning that students can use computers and e-books to study furthermore, you can use technology to contact your collaboration partners if they're sick or not at school. The Prince of Wales secondary school's learning commons has in it a network of computers with access to resources with entire e-books instead of a cluster of books everywhere. The students can access all of the books from their phones or laptops. The Royal Bay learning commons has a couple of cool features one has an ingenious way of getting more kids into reading, the way you do it is you select a book and its covered up so you don't know what it is you select it by based on a sentence that you chose that intrigued you that way you choose a book that peaks your interest. Many of the people using the learning commons are slackers with nothing to do they use the learning commons as a hangout spot and not as a space to learn and further your knowledge, this space is for furthering knowledge, playing cards with your friends and working on projects. most people are watching YouTube, hanging out with friends and the vast minority are doing work.
this is a learning commons this is important because this is a clean and organized space for children to learn and do projects it also looks nice to the eye
this is a more modern LLC it has a very nice looking room comfy couches, lots of computers, its very clean and nice to look at, a spot for books ect.

this is an awesome video that every learning commons should show their students it teaches them how to think critically and apply those skills to their learning here in the Learning Commons.
