As I have been reading this week's required readings, I have thought about what I use in my classroom. There are things that I have bought through Teacher Pay Teachers (TPT) that have enhanced my teaching from vocabulary to design thinking. They sometimes have a choice of single-use and multiple uses. If I share any of the pages, I need to be buying the multiple-use one because this is a copyright infringement. I can tell the person asking to use it where it is on the TPT site.
When I was looking at Creative Common (n.d.) site, I noticed that it mentioned that you could use things from The MET. I remember going into museums as a kid and that it was not allowed to take pictures of paintings or other pieces of art. When I go to museums now, I see people taking pictures, and they are posting them on Facebook or other social media page. Creative Common (n.d.) has let the works of arts be part of the public domain so that many people (including students) can see and be able to study them. This especially since they might never be able to actually to the museum.
As I think about the videos that I use in my classroom, most of them are for education purposes. I use the "Discovery Education" site that has been approved, and I believe the district bought for the teachers. Most of You-Tube videos have a little teaser sand then it makes you pay for the movie. I know that if you want movies for an incentive, the school has to pay for film licensing. This amount for a film license is about $500- the PTA at my school has put this in their budget.
