The vision for a new library media center for 21st Century schools is embodied in concepts for a "learning commons," a physical and virtual space for active learning. (Loertscher, 2008) This course is designed to examine the theory and practice that support the rationale for revisioning school libraries to meet 21st Century educational practices. Educational reforms and changes driven by ubiquitous computing, 21st Century skills, and Common Core Standards, will be considered in assessing the services and goals of school libraries. Models of learning commons, both in the U.S. and internationally will be a focus of study, as well as action planning for change. The course is designed as a community of practice model for professional development that features collaboration and learning in an online environment.
