Learning Commons

The Learning Commons at ACS Amman opened its doors in November 2014. In this physical and virtual learning hub of the school you will find students and teachers alike honing their expertise alongside the school’s leaders in curriculum, literacy, research, and technology. Building off of the metaphors described by educational futurist, David Thornburg, the Learning Commons at ACS Amman offers “cave” spaces for students seeking quiet, reflective, and independent learning opportunities; “watering holes” for formal and informal group study; and, “campfires” for larger expert-led instruction. In addition to housing the print and digital resources to feed the minds of our students, the Learning Commons provides an inviting cafe where food and beverages are available to nourish the bodies of our students. The Learning Commons at ACS addresses the needs of today’s learners, and its flexible design will adapt to the inevitable changes in education.
