Follett School and Library Group (FSLG) has released new solutions to support a student-focused digital learning environment with its integration of Destiny 10.5, FollettShelf (the company's cloud-based virtual bookshelf) and the Follett Digital Reader, which provides a simpler and richer Follett eBook mobile reading experience from various platforms and devices.
The integration is designed to make a district's library more efficient and effective by providing engaging tools for students and teachers to find, share and use digital resources more efficiently, and to support anytime, anywhere learning. In addition, Follett's eBook enhancements allow customers to move seamlessly from an interactive whiteboard to a desktop computer, a laptop, a tablet, and even a smartphone.
Follett's ongoing efforts to support 21st century technology skills, as well as Common Core State Standards, has impressed customers who received an early look through the Follett First Look member-based program.
"Follett continues to provide impressive enhancements to all of their products," said Angela Green, technology resource coordinator for Consolidated School District 158 in Algonquin, Ill. "As we move deeper into one-to-one initiatives with our students, we are ecstatic about the development of FollettShelf/eBooks and the Follett Digital Reader."
The enhancements to Follett eBooks are also powerful, according to the announcement. All Follett eBooks use the proprietary Follett Digital Reader, which provides one consistent reading environment, includes a built-in dictionary and allows students to take notes and bookmark pages.
FSLG includes Follett Software Company, Follett Library Resources, Follett Educational Services and Follett International.
