Add Audioboo Recordings to Thinglink Images

Add Audioboo Recordings to Thinglink Images | TELT | Scoop.it

Richard Byrne of Free Tech for Teachers says:

"Audioboo and Thinglink are two services that I've introduced a lot of teachers to over the last couple years.  If you're unfamiliar with these two tools, Audioboo is a service for creating short audio messages and Thinglink is a tool for creating interactive images. You can now use the two services together. After recording an Audioboo message you can now insert it into a Thinglink image."

Shona Whyte's insight:

Obvious applications for language teaching.

Helping Students Search for Creative Commons Licensed Images: Richard Byrne

Helping Students Search for Creative Commons Licensed Images: Richard Byrne | TELT | Scoop.it

Whenever students start searching on the web for pictures to use in their slideshows, videos, or infographics I have them search first for public domain and Creative Commonslicensed images. Using public domain images and Creative Commons licensed images (with proper attribution) ensures that students don't accidentally infringe on someone's copyright rights. In the video below I demonstrate three ways for students to search for Creative Commons licensed images.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Useful advice for a perennial problem.

Copyright, Creative Commons & Mix & Mash: Lesson Plan

Copyright, Creative Commons & Mix & Mash: Lesson Plan | TELT | Scoop.it
Objectives

Students understand how to legally adapt and reuse Creative Commons and public domain material. This means that students:

understand what copyright is;understand the range of Creative Commons licences;can choose and apply a creative commons licence for their own work;find content that can be reused and remixed;learn how to correctly attribute remixed works; and,understand plagiarism.

Work produced here may be entered in Mix & Mash 2013: The New Storytelling.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Information and activities for teaching about Creative Commons licences.  Some is directly related to New Zealand legislation, but most is relevant and useful for all of us.

Comment créditer les images ? | Thot Cursus

Comment créditer les images ? | Thot Cursus | TELT | Scoop.it
Lors de la publication d’une image sur internet, certains crédits sont à porter pour respecter les droits d’auteur. Si c’est une évidence pour le papier, le web ne déroge pas à la règle, malgré un laisser-aller général en la matière.
Shona Whyte's insight:

Consignes claires et liens pour aller plus loin.


Bottom line : "En tout état de cause, il faut toujours ajouter des crédits à une image."

NounProject: CC pictograms | TELT | Scoop.it

 “sharing, celebrating and enhancing the world's visual language”

 

The Noun Project collects, organizes and adds to the highly recognizable symbols that form the world's visual language, so we may share them in a fun and meaningful way.

- Free

- Simple

- Fun

- Highest Quality

 

Shona Whyte: useful for language teachers for all sorts of materials and activities, though you will need to convert svg files to png format (http://www.fileformat.info/convert/image/svg2raster.htm) if you want to use them in office applications, and they are small icons rather than large-scale illustrations.

Graphic on Creative Commons for Students

Graphic on Creative Commons for Students | TELT | Scoop.it

To help you better teach your students about Creative Commons and how it works, here is a handy graphic that visually captures the main important things students need to know about Creative commons. Enjoy

Shona Whyte's insight:

Don't let the slightly dodgy English put you off.  Quick clear overview of different CC licences, a little of the reasoning behind them and a no-nonsense bottom line: "not public domain: at least the AUTHOR has to be mentioned."

7 sites où il est bon de surfer pour trouver des illustrations, des oeuvres d’art, des photos… | TELT | Scoop.it

Le moteur de google est tant exhaustif qu’il en est parfois inexploitable pour certains besoins. De plus, Google est très bon pour les mots, mais beaucoup moins bon pour les illustrations même si d’énormes progrès ont été fait dernièrement. Fort de ce constat, pour mes besoins propres et surtout à la demande d’un lecteur, je me  suis mis en quête de trouver des sites internet  où se trouvent en priorité des illustrations, des œuvres d’art et des photos.  Pour l’illustrer un peu mon billet, j’ai fait des recherches avec le mot “blond”.
