Hi everyone

A pleasure to see many of you today at our Meetup, and to learn from your own stories. As promised, here are links on things we discussed...

A way of thinking about attribution. - Best practice for marking and attributing http://wiki.creativec...­ A good Australian guide sheet http://creativecommon...­ The Curator's Code http://curatorscode.o...­

CC search tools to use in the classroom. - DigitalNZ for NZ content (use the pull-down filters) http://www.digitalnz....­ Flickr API search tools, like this one from Creative Commons Korea­ and music platforms like Jamendo­ Freesound for sound effects http://www.freesound....­ The CC Search Tool http://search.creativ...­ Use a Google Advance Search and tweak the 'usage rights' filter to crawl the wider web­

Professional Development for teachers on copyright and CC. - See this open course for teachers which anyone can work through, at any time http://wikieducator.o...­

A video to explain CC to NZ kids and teachers. - CC Kiwi­

Te Ara (Encyclopedia of NZ) text resources are now CC from Ministry of Culture and Heritage. - http://www.teara.govt...­

The Koordinates platform is for mapping data, and holds all sorts of layers (Humanities/Geography applicable) -­

All of this gets put to use via cool initiatives. - NZTA Remix competition for schools http://education.nzta...­ and the past Mix and Mash competitions (school categories + school guides)­

What we didn't get on to so much this time was the OER Movement - that is, the CC licensing of teaching materials.
