Week 5: Share your work - September 2
For discussion in your small group
- Share remixes. Discuss, give feedback and critiques, especially in regards to attributions.
- What questions do you still have about attribution and remix? What issues did you come across?
- For the second mission below, decide whether to work in groups, on your own, or with your students. Decide on groups in this session.
- For those who would like to work with their students, discuss ways to incorporate this activity into existing curriculum. Is there a general unit this would fit into best? Or a unit on digital storytelling, library media, technology, multimedia creation, media literacy, or research in any field?
Your task for the next week:
(due Sunday, September 8)
- Publish your work under a CC license following Task 4 of Teach Someone Something with Open Content, part two. You can publish on your own website, an external platform (see Task 4), or the cc4k12 blog/your own blog, but post a link to it in the blog post.*
- Bonus: Teach your work to your class and reflect on how it went on the cc4k12 blog.
- Optional: Apply for the 'Share OER' badge below.
Your group project for the next 2 weeks:
(due Sunday, September 14)
- With your small group, create or adapt an existing resource that explains what you just learned about Creative Commons (basics, finding, remixing, and sharing materials) to your students. This can be anything from a simple handout to a short video or even a webcast.
*Remember to post a link to your blog post below if you are using your own blog.
