Freebie: Tourism & Travel Icon Set (100 Icons, PNG, SVG) Six Top Sources for Free Images, Video, and Audio | Cool Tools I’ve written about a number of video, audio, and collage creation tools, with WeVideo, Audacity, and PicMonkey topping some of my lists. However, it can be a challenge for students to locate copyright-friendly media when using these tools for presentations or idea sharing. It’s always best for students to create materials or use ones that are in the public domain. Here are some of the best resources I’ve found for the latter.

7 Free photo sources teachers can use for online courses Including photos in learning materials is the first step towards offering students a more visual learning experience. I won’t go into why there should be more visual elements in school instruction, nor into the many options teachers have to organize learning materials in a visual manner. I already did that here and here. The focus of this blog will be the photos. While including photos in learning materials is a noble idea, including stolen photos in them is not. You might be using that photo to instill knowledge into the brains of your students — which is great — but you might be a thief nonetheless. Don’t be a thief There are rules to abide by, even on the internet. In order to do that, you first need to know what qualifies as copyrighted material and what not, and to understand the principle of fair use.

Brushes Pretty pictures: Can images stop data overload? Sitting at your desk in the middle of the day, yet another email notification pops up in the corner of the screen, covering the figures you're trying to digest in the complicated spreadsheet in front of you. Your laptop is open on the desk next to you with another set of figures you need - meanwhile you're frantically tabbing through different documents on the main screen. You have a meeting in 20 minutes and you suddenly feel as if you're swimming in a sea of impenetrable data, and you're starting to sink. Welcome to the 21st Century workplace, and "data overload". Under siege You're not alone. Dr Lynda Shaw is a neuroscience and psychology lecturer at Brunel University in the west of London. "I've been interviewing a lot of senior businesspeople lately, and they're actually hiding... because they're frightened they're going to be asked questions they can't answer, so they're delaying making really quite important decisions," she says.
