Tech Tuesday: Parents Experience the Virtual Library Tech Commons
On Tuesday, October 1, Allen-Stevenson parents took time out of their mornings to tour our new Library Tech Commons website (www.ascommons.org) during our first Tech Tuesday of the academic year.
The Library Tech Commons at Allen-Stevenson is a learning commons that integrates a traditional library, maker space and various forms of technology to empower boys as learners. Our collaborative culture of inquiry encourages boys to develop their natural curiosity as they co-design their own learning.
During this session, parents were given a tutorial of the website, learned how to use QR codes to create website logins, and engaged in a fun hands-on website scavenger hunt. Two years in the making, our team has put a lot of thought into designing a website that is full of resources and helpful information, organized by constituent – boys, faculty and staff, and parents – and we are so excited to be able to share it with our community and many others who we hope will find it useful!
