Why reading is important!!

Ann Ewel's curator insight, November 3, 2013 10:11 AM
Ann Ewel's insight:

Neil Gaman says this so eloquently.  Reading is important for our society and reading for pleasure has so many positive ramifications -- so why aren't we doing more to encourage our students to find books they like to read, and giving them time to read them?

"As we work to build twenty-first learning skills...collaboration, creation and communication we need to look at how we can support this by creating an environment that meets that need.  The Learning Commons concept takes libraries that one step further to support digital students and learning."

Eeva Kurttila-Matero's curator insight, August 3, 2013 7:13 AM

Learning commons is  a good concept to widen school libraries and library practices towards collaborative learning.
