GORDON, S. STEWART. “Living And Learning In College.” Journal Of College & University Student Housing 39/40.2/1 (2013): 104-113. Academic Search Complete. Web. 1 Dec. 2013.

This piece of text is very useful for the research project on learning areas because it tells the differences of classrooms and dorms to learning areas of the college. Students prefer to have separate learning areas rather than doing tutoring and such in a classroom or a dorm room. They want a clear separation between formal teaching and living spaces. Students want to have faculty around throughout their living-learning centers. Also, students much rather have diversity when grouping themselves rather than grouping themselves by gender. Therefore, learning centers throughout the college can promote this aspect that students want.

“Journal on centers for teaching and learning.” Middletown, OH: Miami University of Ohio, 2009- V. 1 (2009).

 This e-book is also very useful to the research project on learning areas of a college because it talks about centers for teaching and learning. So one can compare teaching areas and learning areas and then see which one is more useful in a college. Also, it is a good source to see which one is more comfortable for the students and which one students can seek more knowledge from faculty in.

James K. Elmborg and Sheriin Hook. “Centers of Learning : writing centers & libraries in collaboration.”  2005.

This is important for the research of learning centers at City Tech because it addresses the importance of the two combinations of the library and the writing area. Also, the details explains how the two centers of learning are supposed to be used and how important both are.

Stern Stefanie.  “Learning assistance centers: helping students through.” 2001.

More reliable research is how students are getting their help at City Tech, and this supports that. It also explains the importance of guiding the students.

“Journals of Learning Spaces.” 2011.

Last, the information about the student space in learning areas are important and this explains how the space should be for better concentration for students. It is very important that the student space is very comfortable, this allows the student to stay focus.

Johnson, Wendell G. “Educational Technology and the Learning Resource Center.” Community & Junior College Libraries. Apr-Jun2010, Vol. 16 Issue 2, p79-83. 5p. Academic Search Complete. Web. 1 Dec. 2013.
This source is useful for students who are interested in using the library as a learning center. Often, the library is a quiet place used for research and studying, enhancing a students learning experience. Many community colleges provide studying opportunities for the librarian and students, in order to further develop the use of educational technologies in the learning resource centers for colleges. By further developing educational technologies, it benefits the school overall, and for the students because computers and various kinds of technologies are essential in a students study.
VanLEHN, KURT “The Relative Effectiveness of Human Tutoring, Intelligent Tutoring Systems, and Other Tutoring Systems.”Educational Psychologist. Oct-Dec2011, Vol. 46 Issue 4, p197-221. 25p. 12 Charts, 5 Graphs.Academic Search Complete. Web. 1 Dec. 2013.
This source is rather interesting, as it talks about the various types of tutoring available for students to learn from. It ranges from human tutoring, to intelligent tutoring, to other tutoring systems. Each tutoring system teaches and assists the daily life of a students work and learning experience, providing them with the knowledge they need in their studies. This study also shows how the effects of no tutoring can affect the learning process overall for a student, since it’s extremely important that students are being provided with tutors to further their learning.
