Had the issue of copyright raised a number of times recently - must be the cyber world trying to tell me something. So much for my attitude of beg, borrow and steal.

A Straightforward Guide To Creative Commons | Edudemic

A Straightforward Guide To Creative Commons | Edudemic | TELT | Scoop.it
Way back when, research meant going to the library, finding something in a book, and indicating what book you found the information in when you created your bibliography.

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.

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."
