We went from copying pictures from Google to learning how to properly post pictures on our blogs. We learned to use the Clipart our school subscribes to. We learned about the Creative Commons licenses on Flickr and how to properly link the picture back to Flickr. We learned how to give proper credit to the people that took the pictures and how to link them back to them. But that’s not enough.

We have used other people’s pictures, but now other people are going to be using our pictures. We are transforming from users to contributors. We will be taking pictures and loading them onto Flickr so that the whole world can see our wonderful pictures and use them for their own uses.

In class we thought of some words to describe the two categories of takers and contributors.

Takers—————————————————————-Contributers

stealing………………………………………………………………………………..giving

copying………………………………………………………………………………..sharing

lazy…………………………………………………………………………………linking back

unaware……………………………………………………………………………..donating

consumer…………………………………………………………………………..producer

irresponsible digital citizen……………………………………..good digital citizen

no permission…………………………………………………….properly cites CC pics

And these are just some of them.

On a scale from 1 to 10 in the world of takers and contributors we are probably a 4, but we are working to one day be a 10.

Our class has a new Flickr account to share our photos. Check it out. We have photos to share.
