Holcomb Bridge Learning Commons

Hawks Information Central

Student Help Center

Every morning at 8:00 AM students arrive to hang out in the Learning Commons.

You will find students reading, playing computer games, working collaboratively on projects and talking about their day. Mrs. Reagin and Mr. Eastman enjoy helping students find great books to read, research all kinds of topics, use their new Office 365 accounts and even charge their iPads. We especially want students to learn about all of the online resources we have available such as MackinVia and Overdrive for access to thousands of ebooks!

The Learning Commons is the place to be!

We recently added 65 new ebooks both fiction and nonfiction to our collection.

On the right side of the MackinVia home page, choose sort by newest to peruse the new titles. Have a request? Click on the backpack next to your name and scroll down to request.

Spring Reading Challenge

Have students record their reading on a chart available in the Learning Commons or online in Destiny Quest with a short review of each book. Have them bring their form signed by a teacher or their parents to the Learning Commons for prizes. The more books they read the better the reward. First prize awarded is for 3 books read. Ebooks that stduents read on their iPads are included and we have just added 64 new titles to MackinVia.

See Mrs. Reagin or Mr. Eastman for details.

Research Skills

Do your students know how to evaluate content on the web? Everyday they are bombarded with information. They need practice distinguishing between fact and fiction, quality content, social chatter and opinions.
