Can I Use that Picture? The Terms, Laws, and Ethics for Using Copyrighted Images | Literacy | Scoop.it
Need to use an image but not sure if you have the legal and ethical right to do so? Understanding the laws for using images can be a bit tricky, especially because there is wiggle room within the laws. And, with the mass distribution of images on the internet, it's no wonder we're all asking the the same question over and over again: can I use that picture? Whether for your business presentation, your school project, or your organization's brochure, you've likely placed in images to make your designs more visually appealing. But did you use the images according to…

Reading Writing Responding: What's So Digital About Literacy Anyway?

Reading Writing Responding: What's So Digital About Literacy Anyway? | Literacy | Scoop.it

Aaron Davis writes: "In a post titled, 'The Importance of Modeling Positive Use of Social Media', +Chris Wejr suggested that schools need to do more to both model the appropriate use of social media, as well as promote more positive stories. This got me thinking about some of the other things that we may do personally online , but not necessarily model all the time in school. One such practise is that of reading and responding online. So often students are told to use tracks and be active readers, to write regular journal reflections, but this usually starts and stops at the physical book. When are students getting the same opportunity to read and respond online?"

Lots of great stuff in here to ponder.  The blog post itself is a great answer to how reading digital content is a different skill than reading print--do you wander off to the embedded links as you're reading? Do you read the entire post, then go back and visit the links? I find myself down a rabbit hole too often, clicking links, reading, clicking more links.  That works fine for me, but would that work for a student trying to gather information for a research project? Online reading definitely feels more scattered to me, as I am easily distracted. Does that matter to students researching? Do we need to highlight the differences for them? I think at least making students aware by modeling online reading would be helpful, as they can reflect on how they  interact with print and digital information.
