Discover what happens when traditional library learning transforms into an immersive experience for students.
Today’s school library has transformed into an immersive experience for students – moving beyond the quiet place to simply read. It’s become a supportive hub that accentuates classroom learning and adds an exciting element of discovery into the mix.
Through unexpected, hands-on activities, school librarians and media specialists have developed new ways to get students engaged and active in the library. From academically-focused Escape Rooms where teamwork and critical thinking skills are put to use, to Book Tastings where students stretch themselves to ‘sample’ new books, high-level thinking emerges here in fun and surprising ways.
In many future-ready libraries, close and regular collaboration with classroom teachers is a key factor to enrich traditional content areas. The inquiry, literacy, and technology skills developed in the library can apply to these collaborative lessons and allow students to dig deeper into the subject matter and create stronger connections to what they’re learning.
While the school library remains the home base for research and information-gathering, it’s adapting in a modern way to help students develop logical decision-making and valuable life skills. Discover what happens when traditional library learning and hands-on digital creativity meet.
