The Cleversheep talks “Creative Commons”

Should students be putting Creative Commons attributes on their work?

According to a leading educator in the Ontario community, the answer is YES. Rodd Lucier is a teacher – consultant in the Komoka region and is most definately considered an expert in the area of Creative Commons Licenses as it relates to education. That is why I asked him to join my class in a discussion about not only how students can obtain content ethically but also about putting license agreements on their own work – and why.
We had a great discussion, which I captured on audio to summarize the student reflections about Creative Commons:

A few links that Rodd provided for us:

OUR NEXT STEPS:
Students will create a collaborative digital book using Google Docs to teacher other students about Copyright rules and the Creative Commons. Anyone care to join us, in this endeavor?

Phlog it!!

We made our first Phlog today from Ipadio App and Iphone. A very easy way of recording a student discussion, radio broadcast. I like how it also has a “Speech to Text” application. I am definitely impressed with the quality of sound, especially when using the Front Row system with it. I look forward to more impromptu broadcasts from our Grade Six Class.
