Finding “age appropriate” websites
Today the grade 2 students at Hisar discovered how to use Destiny to find age appropriate websites. They need to login to Destiny with their username and password and then put a search term in the find box. Destiny will search for library resources first but then the student can select the Web Sites tab and it will run the same search. Then the students can select which grade level they are and Destiny will search for websites appropriate for that grade level. Teachers find the websites for Destiny and allocate which grade level they are appropriate for. If students need help remembering their passwords they can ask one of the librarians. Students should try to login to Destiny from home and bookmark the url for the website so they can easily find it again. There is a screencast explaining all of this below the photos.
