MCS Description

MCS LEARNING COMMONS

Student collaboration

Gymnasium remodel

The MCJHS and MCHS Learning Commons have transitioned from a book resource to a collaboration resource. The Learning Commons are now a hub for creating choice and control for students to be able to work independently or collectively with various levels of technology, interaction and privacy.

Both spaces followed the plan of reducing the number of books being stored and increasing the number of spaces where students can collaborate. We followed the rubric of spaces that are for people that need to work Alone/Public, Alone/Private, Together/Public and Together Private. This rubric, along with providing settings of different postures, allowed us to create a space that meets different types of needs.
