Building on Media, an EDmarketplace Learning Commons

Classroom E216AB: Building on Media, an EDmarketplace Learning Commons

EDmarket A&D Council Design Team: JCJ Architecture, Naylor Wentworth Lund & Ratio Design

Building on Media will demonstrate that the modern library space can embrace the past and build on traditional teaching methods with current technology to become a flexible and effective learning sanctuary for students of all ages and interests.

Library, media center, learning commons — whatever the name, this educational space acts as both a repository for traditional media and a sanctuary for learning. In the past, the library was made up of a comprehensive collection of available written sources. Today, it features a curated collection of important and relevant materials to engage the learner and build a knowledge base from a variety of formats, including traditional media, digital resources, and hands-on experiences.

The Building on Media learning environment is an example of how traditional resources can be integrated with new technologies to transform the modern library into a place for students of all ages to connect with others, explore new ideas, be inspired, and most importantly — learn.
