PART 1 - TASK Go to the following link and find out more about what CC is, what licences are available and how you get one. http://technolanguages.wikispaces.com/Creative+Commons There will be a quiz in a few minutes…
PART 3 – Flickr + CC Here are two places you can go to search for CC images on Flickr – http://www.flickr.com/creativecommons or, my personal fave – http://flickrcc.bluemountains.net TASK – Try a few searches and choose a photo that represents you. Then figure out how to save it to your computer. Remember to save the attribution information as well!
PART 4 – Flickr in your There are heeeaaaaaps of sites out there that use Flickr photos for one function or another. A couple of my favs are: Spell With FlickrType in any word and it spells it with letter images from the Flickr CC database - works with non-English words.Tag GalaxyType in a search term and Tag Galaxy collects images into a sphere that you can spin. You then click on each image to see larger versions.
