Wikipedia launches “world’s largest photo contest” | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

Take a photo of your favorite (or nearest) monument and add to the creative commons collection of free photos available on one of the most accessed sites in the world.  Anyone who uses your photo is expected to give you credit.  This is a great opportunity for students, photographers, and any citizen who wants to contribute.

Wikipedia is launching another massive photo contest to boost the number of free photos visible in WikiMedia Commons and available for illustrating Wikipedia stories.

This is an excellent article, which lays out the groundrules for using, or citing someone else's content.

Wow.  I love this resource for tips on presentations, improving visual literacy.

 

Either way you have made a snap evaluation. That is what we all do. Be aware of this from the first step.

Thank you for the rescoop. I really like the slideshares at the bottom. I am going to start using the 'trick question" slide in some of my presentations. What a fun way to get attention and show personality. Best of luck to you. I like what I see on this site!

Top Tech Trends and People of 2012

Here is the textbook that I created/curated for teaching my New Media Technology class during the Spring semester of 2012 at Hannam University's Linton Global College. I took great effort to give credit where it is due. I aimed to show my students how they could access enough free info on the web that was of equal or greater value than the wonderful information found in expensive textbooks. Feel free to share and please support the true authors of this book in any way you can (money, likes, blog comments, links, etc.) I am simply the currator of this content.

If you would like a free tablet-friendly PDF file, just email me at kenmorrison30 @ yahoo.com (no spaces)

This is a course created by fellow curator Ken Morrison.  It contains enough information on social media that everyone will find something of interest.  Thanks for sharing, Ken!
