Creative Commons Computing - re-using images
Build a website with Creative Commons images
The aim of this unit of work is to teach children the principles of copyright compliant searching and accurate attribution of digital content when it is re-used. Children will learn about the ownership of created content and Creative Commons licences. They will use search effectively to find images that can be re-used and learn to attribute them correctly. They will create a website which combines the images that they have found and combine them with text to explain how other children can search for images to re-use on their own blogs or websites.

The author (Jo) used the lessons herself in the last half term and will be building the websites with her children in the next couple of weeks. She hopes that the plans could be adapted to fit into other areas of the curriculum so that the final end product has a real purpose. Her children were studying space and we wrote recounts about our visit to the National Space Centre in our English lessons, which they will then turn into websites using the images we found in the computing lessons. The final websites could be recounts, information texts or even instructions on how to search for Creative Commons licensed images!
