The Learning Hub

The Learning Hub is an open learning space for independent work or casual connecting. The space offers a large collaboration area and two technology enabled classrooms. The spaces can be used together or separately.

This space models newer approaches to learning environments and offers the opportunity for students to experience learning spaces that are being more commonly applied throughout British Columbia's K-12 Education system.

Technology integration and new ways of using, defining and holding space are at the forefront of educational innovation. This physical space is yours to experience–to learn, to grow and to experiment–we also encourage you to help us shape the future of education by continuously providing your feedback.
