Understanding copyright, licensing and attribution for photos and images - Book Creator app Finding good quality images to use in your Book Creator books is not always easy. Even if you find the right image, you have to be sure you’ve understood the licensing and attribution, or you could be breaking copyright law.

In schools especially, we need to educate students (and teachers!)

About the Licences The Creative Commons licences are set out below, going from the most liberal (or least restrictive) licence, the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) licence, to the most restrictive licence, the Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial No Derivatives (CC BY-NC-ND) licence. There are two versions of the Creative Commons licences currently in use in Australia: (1) the version 3.0 CC Australia licences (the Australian “ported licences”), which were launched in June 2010; and Copyright and Creative Commons are friends Interesting video, although somewhat regionally-centric. Overall I love the underlying altruistic idea of CC. Certainly in education we are eternally running into the issue of copyright vrs copywrong... Free Music Archive What's A Music License? Put simply, a license is an agreement between a music creator or their representative (such as a record label) and someone who wants to use their music (at an establishment, in a broadcast or other program, or in a film, for example). There is no standard licensing fee or rate; license rates are often agreed upon by the artist and the licensor on an individual basis. Some artists, such as Kevin Macleod, offer standard licenses online for using their works beyond the scope of the Creative Commons license already on their work.

The project team has been meticulous about documenting their journey so far.

Here Is A Great Resource for Teaching Students about 21st Century Learning Skills June 12, 2016Mozilla Learning Network provides a wide range of web literacy materials to help educators and teachers incorporate the digital skills of the 21st century learning. It offers free resources that include programs, tools, guides, and step-by step teaching activities that you can use in class with students to help them develop the ability to read, write and participate in an openly networked world. We spent sometime sifting through the materials offered in Mozilla Learning Network and we found them really worth the shout-out here. What stood out to us the most from this collection is a section called web Literacy. Web Literacy provides an initial framework that examines the entry-level web literacy skills (participate, read and write) and 21s century learning skills (problem solving, communication, creativity and collaboration).

What Is Creative Commons and Why Does It Matter? As K-12 educators, you face unique challenges when it comes to using the Web. Not only are you trying to find resources to aid your teaching, but you're also on the lookout for resources that your students can use -- legally, technically, and socially. With so much out there, it can be difficult to figure out what is and isn't suitable for classroom use -- not to mention what will interest students long enough to tear them away from what’s trending on social media. One set of tools, known as Creative Commons licenses, can help address some of these challenges, while also enriching the teaching process and empowering learners of all ages.

What Is Creative Commons, And Should You Use It? While writing out your next academic paper, you look online for various images which are appropriate for what you’re talking about.

On CC0 – Medium There’s a lot to unpack in this post by Alan Levine about his attempts to license (or un-license) his photographs with Creative Commons Zero (CC0). The way I think about these things is: Standard copyright: “All Rights Reserved” — I do the innovation, you do the consumption.Creative Commons licenses: “Some Rights Reserved” — I have created this thing, and you can use it under the following conditions.CC0/Public Domain: “No Rights Reserved” — I have created this thing, and you can do whatever you like with it. I’m not precious about my work. I donated my doctoral thesis to the public domain under a CC0 license (lobbying Durham University to ensure it was stored under the same conditions in their repository).
