Teaching teachers and students about copyright and asking them to respect intellectual property is not an easy task, but it is critical that we teach students that plagiarism is not acceptable (and that we follow the same rules). This infographic provides one way for teachers and students to determine what they may do and also provides information on how you may take material you have created and either place it under Creative Commons or choose to copyright the work.

less "catch me if you can" and more "I'll be a responsible  digital citizen"

Fantastic! This is so helpful for students and teachers who are always a bit unclear on the grey areas of copyright. No matter which country you live in, these are clear and helpful.

How do you create effective visuals? This post provides 5 Cs to help guide you. Make sure the visual is:

* Clear

* Concise

* Connected

* Compelling

* Complete

Why is this important? People remember visuals, more so than words. As you create a visual make sure that it is easy to understand, that it shares critical information, that it engages the learners.

For each of the 5 C's consider the questions below (quoted from the post).

* Will a visual help make a point clearer?

* Will a visual summarize a point better than text?

* Will a visual help learners make connections?

* Will visuals make content more attractive?

* Will a visual help complete an idea?

Each of these questions are explored...and of course, each has a visual to help us understand the reason. Although the post is addressing eLearning, the same concepts apply in a face2face classroom.
