Find free images online!
Images are an important part of the creative side of any educators’s work. We need to make use of quality image sources that are good, free, and easy to search through. The trick is to know what sources to recommend to students. It’s not just about copyright – its about being practical, and showing students the wonderful world of possibilities beyond Google images or taking anything they find that is not actually in the public domain – a vital point as more students and teachers move into online environments of blogs, wikis and more. Including images with postings enriches the experience for the reader and can also help to illustrate or support the writer’s viewpoint. Flickr is my top favourite which also has an advanced search option. Flickr Creative Commons compiles images that Flickr users who chosen to offer their work under a Creative Commons license, and you can browse or search through content under each type of license.

Copyright: Reaching Out to Teachers and Students « Teaching with the Library of Congress This is a guest post from David Christopher, Chief, Information and Records Division, U.S. Copyright Office. When I was young — and I’m not that old — the term “copyright” and its curious symbol, ©, seemed a quaint holdover from a bygone era. It was for me a fuzzy legal term that book publishers thought highly enough of to place on the verso of the title page of every book I ever picked up, but it certainly had no real impact on me or my life. Boy, have things changed. The Internet, coupled with smart phones, tablets and all of the other wonderful gadgets we use to create, share and enjoy creative works, gives each of us the power to engage in infringing activities, whether knowingly or not, literally on a global scale. Given the increased relevance of copyright in the digital age, the U.S. The goal of this effort is to implement a series of new education projects tailored to a variety of audiences including librarians, teachers, artists, copyright practitioners, and the general public.

Tillägg till Chrome som underlättar ditt lärarjobb Jag hoppas att du har övergett webbläsaren (det du klickar på när du öppnar internet) Internet Explorer och nu använder en modernare webbläsare. Tyvärr envisas de flesta IT-avdelningar med att Internet Explorer är det som ska vara förinstallerat. Personligen använder jag nästan alltid Chrome. Att använda Chrome har många fördelar. Framförallt gillar jag de tillägg som finns och som underlättar mitt arbete. Innnan du börjar så kolla om du är inloggad i Chrome med det googlekonto du vill använda. Utan inbördes rangordning börjar jag med att visa er tillägget Awesome Screenshots. Tillägget hamnar sedan som små ikoner i menyraden bredvid adressfältet. (Det som ni ser under adressfältet är mina bokmärken och favoriter. Awesome Screenshot hjälper dig att ta skärmdumpar, bilder, så som jag har gjort i bloggen här. AdBlock Plus – oumbärligt för att bli av med alla annonser som dyker upp överallt på nätet. Readlang Web Reader – detta måste ni lära era elever! Lycka till! Sara
