  1. "The Virtual Learning Commons replaces the library web page which has always been a one-way form of communication between librarians and their patrons. The Virtual Learning Commons aims to create a giant school-wide conversation where students, classroom teachers, teacher librarians, teacher technologists, administrators, other school specialists, and parents are creating and constructing a giant information space, work space, and museum." - Loertscher, David V. (San Jose State University) "The Virtual Learning Commons «." School Libraries. 6 June 2009. Web. 05 May 2010. .

Would you like to help improve our wiki layout or organization? All community members are welcome. As Charles Mingus said, "Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity."

Electronic media puts the world at your fingertips but if you do not have good scanning techniques and an easy way to make sure the the information is valid then and you will be easily frustrated. Remember, some experts claim up to 65% of information on the Internet is either misleading or invalid. The key word is "discernment"!
