The Inquiry Lounge

A Place of Inquiry and Learning from Each Other

The purpose of this page: 

This page is dedicated to learning projects and initiatives in the Learning Commons as collaborative learning experiences between the Library staff, teachers, learners, and parents. The learning experiences featured here can be done in a variety of learning environments including knowledge building centers, Book2Cloud, Moodle projects, projects done in content management systems, technological learning spaces, or face to face projects with the organization done in digital space. The idea of this portal in the VLC is that two heads are better than one; meaning that collaborative planning, construction, execution, and assessment by classroom teacher, teacher librarians, and adult specialists (including outside experts) is superior to the efforts of a single and isolated teacher in the classroom or teacher librarian isolated in the library.
