Destiny Quest: It's More Than Just a Library Catalog!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Destiny Quest or "the DQ app" as we call it at Phillips Elementary, can be used in the classroom, as well as, during library time. In my opinion, 2-5 grades should be signing on to DQ at least once a week. Participants will be shown how to navigate all of the DQ options for students and teachers. These options include:
1.) Viewing the top 10 most checked-out books.
2.) Viewing the most recently added books to their school's library.
3.) Putting checked out books on hold.
4.) Building a personal favorite book list so you can see which are available for check-out.
5.) Writing book reviews.
6.) Performing a variety of searches for text and website.
7.) Gathering research from a variety of sources in a variety of formats. (Text, Video, Audio).
