A really clear article that gives easy to understand info on

Creative Commons! A nice start!


You know I'm all about #4!

Share alike: if the creator allows other to transform their work, they may also state, if someone wants to transform the work, the created image must carry the same Creative Commons license as the one that was transformed. I call this the “pay it forward” option.

A good place to start is the BYOD Toolkit which is part of the K-12 Blueprint for implementing successful technology initiatives. The Toolkit includes case studies, checklists, step-by-steps, program frameworks, forms, and presentations to help in planning and implementing a BYOD program at the school or district level.”

Reading Is About More Than 'Evidence'

Reading Is About More Than 'Evidence' | Information for Librarians | Scoop.it
When students approach reading as only an exercise in seeking out evidence, as the common core recommends, they risk missing out on the value of reading for intrinsic literary value, writes Mia Hood.

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, November 4, 2014 10:13 AM

I love that this article goes beyond the CCSS catchphrase of "what does the evidence say?" Reading for all the "other" reasons has great validity: ideas, curiosity, emotional connection, etc. Worth sharing with your reading teachers and for delving a little deeper into what you REALLY want students to be able to do with the text.
