If we expect our students to become good digital citizens, we must practice what we preach.
One way to show students what we want is to encourage them to publish their content on the web, whether it’s artwork, video, music, or text. Then, as digital stakeholders, they’ll understand what it’s like to have someone else appropriate their work.
But if students are in a hurry and need to grab something off the web to finish their projects, then Creative Commons is a great place to go. Here, students can find images, text, and videos which are legal for students and teachers to use.
What is Creative Commons? Check out this video.
Not all images, video, or text on a site are licensed for reuse, but here are a few ways to find them.
