Library as Knowledge Building Commons


This wiki is for gathering ideas and observations as Broadus Wood Elementary School library revamps the physical space to become more student centered. We are looking at how students want to use space, books and electronic resources. Our goal is to plan around those zones and activities, with the central idea being inquiry-driven learning.
