Web Gem for Dec 1— Students and teachers who want to use photo, music and video content from the web need to know how to find CREATIVE COMMONS licensed work, marked by the creator for free sharing, remixing and/or commercial use.

Try using FlickrCC(http://flickrcc.bluemountains.net/) to search Creative Commons photos on Flickr. This search tool puts the attribution information right up front with each photo AND it lets you search for quality images that you are legally entitled to use for creative and/or commercial work. Information is right there so it is easy to cite the source. If in doubt you can always contact the photographer from the link!

Our library uses World Wide Web technology and Web design to enhance learning, creativity, communications, information sharing, and collaboration. Starting this month, we will be posting tips every week or two. By January, these will be moved to a new page that is being designed by a member of our school TECH TEAM from the Enrichment 9/10 class!
