Technology and Library Integration Happenings!

Today, third graders in Mrs. Cunha's class had a combined library / technology class with Miss Carney and Mrs. Ardizzoni, where students learned how to add a website, in this case Follett Destiny (our library management system) to their iPad homescreens and then how to use Follett Destiny.  There were multiple objectives to this lesson.  Students learned the steps to add websites to their ipad homescreens, which allows for quicker access to frequently visited websites.  Next, students practiced signing into their library accounts to see what books they have checked out, and determining if they will renew them.  Last, students used Follett Destiny to place a "hold" on a book they are hoping to check out in the future.  All of this adds up to our students becoming more self-reliant and being successful!
