Instruction on using the Destiny Quest feature in the Follett Destiny Library Managing Software system. This helps student be more autonomous in holding books, recommending books to peers, reviewing and rating titles, and researching their next read.
Computer attached to projector. Homework sheet. Student computers if possible.
Ensure that you've configured your system to allow students access to Quest once they've logged in. Understand how your district has set-up student's personal login.
Create a dummy student for you to use as an example. (Mine is named Bogus Pretend. He has the same access as my students.)
Students should know their username and password.
Students will be able to login and navigate the Quest feature in Destiny. They will have the ability to place holds, recommend titles to peers, comment and review books and use the various search helps to find similar books to ones they have enjoyed.
Before the beginning: Make sure your students have access to Quest. Under patron access levels: (Check other boxes if you wish, but these two must be set for Quest to open upon login.)
Before logging in do a quick reminder of how to look up a material in basic Destiny. Explain that you will demonstrate a method of using the program that will allow them to place holds, review books, and share information with their friends.
