My Diigo Links 06/14/2009

  • This post from Lynda Morceaux is a nice commonsense run down of how to find your way into the Twitterverse. Organised under four stages, Lynda offers suggestions on how to maximise your involvement with each one. Thanks to @murcha for tweeting this link.

  • If you’re an Australian teacher then you should definitely have this page in your Bookmarks/Favorites. As they say:

    “Through its Copyright Advisory Group, the Australian Ministerial Council on Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs (MCEETYA) has published a Creative Commons information pack online, a bundle of eight documents that distills the basics of CC licensing and the philosophy behind it. This pack is a great resource for educators and students, and we encourage you to use it in your schools by adapting it however you like.

    The info pack includes concise and concrete answers to simple questions, like:

    • What is Creative Commons?
    • How to Find Creative Commons Licensed Material
    • How to Attribute Creative Commons Licensed Material

    and more. Find all documents at their Smartcopying website, “The Official Guide to Copyright Issues for Australian Schools and TAFE.” All of them are licensed CC BY, the most effective and open license for open educational resources.”

  • Jeff Mummert from The History Teachers Attic has published this great post which lists the TED videos that he thinks are particularly useful and divides them up by subjects including the traditional curriculum areas. As he point out this list is not the sum total of all the TED videos, just a selection of those most relevant to education.
