With Shark Week here, I thought it would be fun to put together a Shark Week Collection in Destiny Discover.
Collections allow us to curate collections of resources; create more collaborative opportunities between the teacher and teacher librarians; find what others have created to use as our own; and so much more including being able to share these rich, beautiful Collections of resources with your district and publicly too.
A Collection can include anything on the web and all resources found in Destiny, which is why it is the perfect place for all of the Shark Week resources I am finding this week.
For more information, you can read this post too.
As I gather all of these resources into my Shark Week Collection, I have been using the Collections Bookmarklet which makes it so easy, quick and fun.
I put together my Collection in just a few minutes with this awesome tool!
As I was writing this post with directions on how to add the Collections Bookmarklet, I thought it would be just as easy for you to watch me do it, so I created this short video. You can check it out by clicking the video above.
Below, I will share the directions on adding the Collections Bookmarklet too.
You will find a black banner across the Add Item box saying... Add items even faster. Install the bookmarklet.
Click on that banner.
Discovery Kids Shark Week, I just...
From this box, I can also select which Collection I want to add the resource to or....
My Shark Week Collection is just one of the new Collections I have been working on this week.
With the Collections Bookmarklet, I can do this easier and quicker than ever.
Shark Week Collection here. It is also in the PUBLIC Collections....where we can all share, see and use each others Collections.
I can't wait to see what Collections you are creating too.
