Internet Safety

Media Literacy

Creative Credit & Copyright

  • In today's digital culture young people can easily find, copy, and distribute digital content.   However, this leads them to use online material without thinking about where it comes from or to whom it belongs. Common Sense Media states that "viewing the Internet as a "free-for-all" leads to problems of copyright infringement, plagiarism, piracy, and a general lack of respect for the hard work and creativity of others. The basic fact is this: Even if something is posted on the Internet for all the world to see, someone somewhere created that picture, song, or article -- and it belongs to that person."  The sites below offer access to images with Creative Commons licenses and/or public domain status that can be used in school projects.
