Full Session Description (as long as you would like): We cannot deny the changing role of a library in this digital learning world. A traditional library does not seem to be fulfilling the needs of our students. It’s time to revolutionize! At the American School of Bombay we have replaced a centralized library by introducing 6 Information Commons (iCommons). The iCommons is now become the center of a child’s learning space, supporting collaborative learning and truly bringing the resources at the fingertips of every child’s world.
