Hi everyone,

I re-worked the Introduction to Creative Commons for Schools presentation by CC New Zealand. The aim was to make it much shorter, geared to Year 9 students and reflecting the copyright situation in the UK, which seems to be a bit different.  https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BygNhfPMQKjDa2JqM1NSNjlyRFU/edit?usp=sharing

Week 1 of the scheme of work would be for the class to evaluate the websites on School Dinners, week 2 would be a lesson on Creative Commons, of which the presentation would form a part, week 3 would be the students’ turn to use information from the websites to create their own presentations https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BygNhfPMQKjDc0pUM3Y5XzdkcFE/edit?usp=sharing.  They would use the creative commons search to find pictures to re-use or re-mix and would attribute them properly with the other references on their final bibliography page.  Week 4 would be making the presentations.  I will suggest we try this lesson out when we next run Year 9 Life Skills projects.
