lcpixA learning commons is the evolution of the traditional school library and provides students with a versatile space to work, explore, and engage with each other to support educational growth and learning.  Upgrading older schools to reflect current teaching methods is incredibly important to ensure that all CBE students have the same educational opportunities regardless of where they receive their education, and is an effective way to steward and improve the buildings that hold our most precious natural resource.

EducationMatters has been investing in Calgary’s educational infrastructure for several years now, providing schools with grants to transform a more traditional library space into one that supports current teaching methods and provides educators and students with a place that fosters creativity, inquiry, collaboration, and exploration.  Your support helps us to continue to elevate the learning experience for students across the school district that helps their development today, and the success of the communities that they will help to lead tomorrow.
