- First let's learn how to find material that you can use.
- Here is the Google Advanced Search link.
- Search tool in Creative Commons portal
- Creative Commons launched a new search engine CC Search in 2017. This is a prototype to find images that you can use and remix across several open archives. The new CC Search lets you narrow searches by license type, title, creator, tags, collection and type of institution. It also includes social features, letting you make and share lists of favorite images, as well as add tags and favorites to individual items. Plus, you can save your searches for quick access in the future. The best thing is that the engine also makes it easier to apply the necessary attribution, when available, by offering pre-formatted copy you can click to copy and paste.
- So with Google and Creative Commons out of the way, where else can I find resources to use?
- What are Open Education resources?
- Open Educational Resources (OERs) are any type of educational materials that are in the public domain or introduced with an open license. The nature of these open materials means that anyone can legally and freely copy, use, adapt and re-share them. OERs range from textbooks to curricula, syllabi, lecture notes, assignments, tests, projects, audio, video and animation.
- Of particular note - these ones are immediately useful in schools:
- and don't forget you can search for Creative Commons licenced You Tube videos too.
- And for teachers especially - Scootle - Digital learning resources matched to the Australian Curriculum including: audio, photos, videos, interactive resources, units of work, assessment tools and tools for creating learning resources. This site is free for Australian educators and resources are licensed under Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 licence.
- Here is some really useful documents that list heaps of OER's for teachers and students. Bookmark these for future reference.
