Nothing hidden about these "tips & tricks" - just standard every day library functions. This is not new, most these functions have been used since Win95, the days before we see the net as we do now. Nonetheless, whatever it takes for people to finally catch up and educate themselves about easier searching techniques!

Teaching teachers and students about copyright and asking them to respect intellectual property is not an easy task, but it is critical that we teach students that plagiarism is not acceptable (and that we follow the same rules). This infographic provides one way for teachers and students to determine what they may do and also provides information on how you may take material you have created and either place it under Creative Commons or choose to copyright the work.

Check out this infographic to learn five myths and five facts about copyright. Consider mixing them up and asking your students to try to determine truth from fiction. And ask your students to review it before they begin to do research online.

I always try to stay away from using other peoples work , but going into the industry an having the internet incorporated in almost every aspect of this career field makes even harder to protect my own work. I might stray away from using copyrighted work but there are people out there that don't have the same morals.

The statistics in this video appear to be accurate to me based on an infographic that was published earlier this year. You can find the infographic with commentary by Mark Gleeson on this Scoop.it (search infographic and look for July 2013) or you can go directly to his post for more information at http://mgleeson.edublogs.org/2013/07/14/2760/.

Hi Kimberly! Thanks for thumbs up!
Also we ask teachers to fill a survey that could help us to improve. Maybe you could find a few minutes to fill it yourself and pass to other teachers who use it? Thanks!
