Thing #5

The Flickr Creative Commons website is a hidden treasure! I am so glad to have had the opportunity to explore it. It provides millions of images, clearly marked for second-party usage. It is a fabulous place to introduce to students and other teachers since each image is marked with a Creative Commons license. Since there are a number of CC licenses available, students can explore all of the copyright variances and learn how to properly use each. Students can also create their own albums and designate their own preferred level of copyright protection to their images. This would allow them to learn about Creative Commons from the creator's point of view.
