Exploring photos and videos on the web
I have started using Flickr for my own photos. I can see that students will love uploading their photos and videos on the web. The issue of copyright is a big one as it is sometimes difficult for students to understand that something on the web, a public domain, could be owned by someone. Students often simply cut and paste text, graphics and videos to add to their own work. Copyright becomes a much trickier issue when web 2.0 encourages knowledge creation through collaboration.
Love Flickr and can’t wait to upload more of my favourite images!
