I just wanted to say that I was really impressed with how many of you got involved in this week’s blogging challenge.
Activity 1 – Learning about Creative Commons
Firstly, we looked at Creative Commons, and even though it is a difficult topic to understand, many of you are already providing attribution for the images you use – great job! I have added a new page to the Resources page (hover over the Resources link in the main header and their will be a sub-heading, ‘Creative Commons’). I have tried to simplify Creative Commons as much as I can, as well as providing you with links to sites that provide images, videos and music licensed under Creative Commons and a how-to on attribution. I hope this helps.
Activity 2 – Remixing and Fair Use of Video
We have looked at ‘A Fair(y) Use Tale’ about remixing and fair use of video. Many of you are in the process of creating your own work, using images, quotes and video, about teamwork. I can’t wait for you to upload the finished product (paying attention to remixing, fair use and Creative Commons)!
Activity 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7 – Using Images or Music Ethically
This activity was to be completed on your own blog. Please check out the following blogs:
- Jason T’s story, ‘Corruption Part 1: The Demon’ (Activity 4)
- Jessica’s story, ‘The Start of a Journey’ (Activity 4)
- Praban’s story, ‘The Long Voyage’ (Activity 4)
- Rose’s poem, ‘Endless’ (Activity 3)
There are a number of other people who are sharing their writing online, but they haven’t included images. Still, I would highly recommend checking them out:
- Andy’s ‘Fallen Angel’ and ‘Unity’
- Cornas’s ‘The Horror’
- David’s ‘The Quest’
- Genis’s ‘The Knock That Wouldn’t Leave Me Alone’
Activity 9 – Zoom Out from an Image
Looking forward to next week’s challenge!
