  4. 4. Task One: Instructions for Teachers<br />Identify 2 collections (can be more) <br />Collections are a group of resources from one provider <br />They share the same url address<br />Example<br /> This is the collection homepage<br /> This is an individual resource from the Illuminations NCTM collection<br />For this task provide just the collection homepage url and a description of the collection and its TW qualities<br />Collections can be made up of different subjects or the same subject. They can be for only one age group or many.<br />Use the LRE Community Forum to share the url, describe the collections and discuss your recommendations and experiences with other teachers<br />Powerpoint template - Patricia Munoz King<br />4<br />28/01/2009<br />
  5. 5. Task One: Requirements (1)<br />At least one of the collections should originate either from Europe or have support for European languages other than English<br />The collection must have at least 20 + individual learning resources that meet travel well criteria. <br />What to look for:<br />The collections can be something you already know well because this is where you found resources for the previous tasks.<br />Collections that have a Creative Commons license or a Terms of Use page (usually at the bottom) explicitly allowing teachers to use and share this material at no cost.<br />Powerpoint template - Patricia Munoz King<br />5<br />28/01/2009<br />
  6. 6. Task One: Requirements (2)<br />What to avoid:<br />Collections already in the LRE are not eligible<br />It is ok if one or several individual resources are in the LRE because of previous eQNet work but not the whole collection <br />You can see if the collection is in the LRE with search by provider name<br />Collections that have a lot of advertising or that require payment to use the resources <br />Look at the terms of use statement usually at the bottom of the page. <br />Does a teacher need explicit permission to use the resource in a class?<br />If yes, the collection is not eligible.<br />Powerpoint template - Patricia Munoz King<br />6<br />28/01/2009<br />
  7. 7. Task One: Requirements (3)<br />Avoid Collections that are a mix of resources provided by another aggregator/federation<br />How to tell if you are looking at an aggregator/federation:<br />When you select a resource are you taken to a different site entirely? <br />If yes, you are using an aggregator/federation. <br />Does the site let you browse by collections of providers?<br />If yes, you are using an aggregator/federation. <br />If you are unsure, feel free to send your examples to<br />Example of aggregators/federation:, and<br />It is ok to use an aggregator/federation to discover a collection but remember to provide the specific collection url and not the aggregator/federation pages.<br />Powerpoint template - Patricia Munoz King<br />7<br />28/01/2009<br />
