What is Destiny Quest???

3rd-5th grade students are being introduced to the kid-friendly way to search the Endeavour library catalog called Destiny Quest. It is much more visually appealing and will be easier for Kindergarten-2nd grade students to try their hand at searching for a book through the computer. Destiny also has many interactive features that will be introduced to students, such as putting a book on hold, reviewing a book and recommending a book to a friend.

Draw and Tell iPad App from Duck, Duck, Moose

Thanks to a recent partnership with Khan Academy, Duck Duck Moose has made its terrific Draw and Tell iOS app completely FREE. With Draw and Tell, young students can easily create an animated screencast complete with voice, drawings, images, and objects. As a result, it's simple for emerging learners to create digital stories or presentations on any number of topics.
