Media Center to Learning Commons: Low Budget, Big Results

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Learn about how Austin High School transformed their dated Media Center into a future-ready Learning Commons for both students and staff. Designed based upon results of staff and student-focus groups, the new AHS Learning Commons houses a flexible classroom, a student-led Tech Cafe, both collaborative and quiet study spaces, a Makerspace, and a Professional Development center. All supplies for the re-visioning were low-budget or small-grant provided. This was not a big-budget renovation.
