My summary of this week’s challenge from Sue’s Page
Most important learning from this week’s challenge is:
You must understand that just because an image is on the internet, you may not have the right to use it on your own work.
Use creative commons images, not just any image on the net. Always include attribution of where you found the image.
Activity 1 Watch this video about sharing work and write a post about what you learned. Include words such as attribution, share alike, licences and derivatives to show you understand what the video was about. Do some more research on the topic and perhaps create your own poster, slideshow or video about using images, music and videos online.
This video is the reaction of students in Mrs Yollis’ class when she mislabelled their artwork. How would you have felt?
Activity 8. Create your own images and add to a post of your choice. In your post add a link to the website or tool you used to create your image.
Other options for creating your own images include:
- Image Generators such as ImageGenerator.org
- Comic Generators like MakeBeliefsComix.com, ToonDoo
- Photo Editors like Befunky, fd’s Flickr Tools
- Tag Cloud Creators such as Wordle
- Graph Creators including GraphJam and Crappy Graphs
Here are some wonderful tips on inserting images into your blog.
My extra challenge:
Have a look at WikiMediaCommons
- Search for an image that represents one of your passions or interests.
- Insert the image into your post with the correct attribution – you will need to read the instructions carefully as there are a number of ways to do this task.
