  • How many of us know what these symbols mean?
  • This one should be a little more familiar. Any work you produce is automatically covered by copyright, whether a work of art sought by millions or a simple drawing, video or digital image.
  • So the aim of today is to make us a little more familiar with these symbols so...
  • we don’t have to worry about this one so often.
  • So, now that many more of us have laptops in classrooms we hopefully will want our students to use them to create works that they can use now, to reinforce language learnt in class, or later in the year for revision. Works they can share and learn from each other with and works they can share on web pages with parents and the wider community. So, if you give them a scenario like the ones on the screen, where do they go?
  • Most of my students went straight to google and most of them end up with images that are governed by copyright.
  • It’s not that google is bad, but a straight google image search will give you images governed by copyright and those that aren’t. Generally the ones the students choose are copyright.
  • This may help...
    So, there are exceptions for teachers that allow us to use certain works or amounts of work. But what if we want to publish work to show parents and the wider community? Or indeed our sister school in Japan. We cannot publish work that is governed by copyright.
  • These images are OK but not the best quality and can only be used in the classroom.
  • But quite often, due to their actual size, they pixelate and go all blurry when you increase the size. Compare this image with the next, an image that, under certain conditions, we are able to use.
  • This photo is a CC image and available for use under certain conditions. Obviously it’s a far better quality image than the previous one.
  • But why use CC work?
  • We live in a digital world where people are publishing every day and making their work available for others to use, with certain provisions that generally means they wish to be acknowledged as the author. Students are also publishers and they need to think about what they would like others to do with their work.
  • These icons tell us what we can do with the work. The meaning of these can be found on the back cover of the conference booklet or go to the Creative Commons website. But where do we go to find images, sounds, etc?
  • Easier than you may think... Google and Yahoo both have advanced search that allows you to look for CC licensed work and there are quite a few sites where most of the images, sound and video are CC licensed.
  • Keep track of CC works that you save to your computer by using the username, image name and source in the file name. It can make it long but it makes attribution much easier.
  • The most important thing that teaching our students about CC will probably do is to get them thinking. Many of them will be publishing content or already have published content on the web. They need to think what they would want (or don’t want) people doing with that content. Using it with permission, copying it, etc.
