10 free tools for creating infographics | Infographic | Creative Bloq | 21st Century ESL | Scoop.it
For all the importance we place on text, it's an indisputable fact that images are processed in the brain faster than words. Hence the rise and rise of the infographic which, at its best, transforms complex information into graphics that are both easy to grasp and visually appealing. No wonder magazine readers and web visitors love them.

FLOWCHART: Copyright 101 for ELT Writers Teachers & Students

FLOWCHART: Copyright 101 for ELT Writers Teachers & Students | 21st Century ESL | Scoop.it

It is true that Internet and more particularly web 2.0 technologies have redefined the concept of agency, giving full performative freedom to anyone with the least technical knowledge to write, record, mash up, share, and create different multimedia artefacts, but this freedom is only meaningfully productive  when it is grounded in a creative mindset that respects and acknowledges and builds on the works of others. Copyright is a way to promote creative endeavours through regulating the relationship between the produced content and the perceived notion of its consumption, distribution and re-use

Just the facts. Increasingly important issues related to degrees of copyright in an unclear area.
