Many students are now making use of Movie Maker as well as more common tools such as powerpoint to produce homework presentations. With more and more of our students making use of digital media in homework and classwork, it is essential that we encourage them to be aware of ‘fair use’ of other resources and to be aware of copyright issues.
I have been aware of Creative Commons for a while but I have just come across this excellent presentation explaining Creative Commons as a way in which students can legally use, adapt and share digital media in their work. Thanks to Mark Wolley from “The Big Question” for this.
The Big Question seems to be a great blog to keep an eye on!
