Don’t steal photos. Don’t let your students steal photos.

What do I mean by “stealing photos”?

  • Taking an image from the Internet that isn’t labeled “fair use.”
  • Using a fair use photo without citing it.

It’s not difficult to use online images responsibly, it just means adjusting the way you do things. There’s a page on the #ChromebookPirate website about how to use photos, music, and video without stealing, and there’s one on the student Chromebook Handbook as well.

If we’re not modeling ethical behavior, we can’t expect it of our students.

If you have any questions, or if you’d like for me to come in to your classes to show students how to search and cite fair use photos, please let me know!

But for starters, Photos for Class offers a simple fair use search feature and does the citation right on the photo for you!

Now you can differentiate assignments in Google Classroom

 

Frustrated that in order to assign something to one student in Google Classroom, you need to assign it to the entire class? That’s been fixed. Google Classroom just announced this new differentiation feature – read about it here, or watch the quick walk through below!
