Webinar - Using Free and Inexpensive Technology to Transition Your Library to a Learning Commons

The Learning Commons model cannot be thought of as only the physical hub for collaborative learning. It also has to incorporate an outreach model. Free and inexpensive technologies, such as social media, self-created presentations and short videos, email boards, etc., facilitate this outreach to the entire school community of students, faculty, and administration.
