Fair Dealing in Canada & Blogging

Although our class time was cut short yesterday to make room for our visit at George Jay Elementary, we covered some really helpful information concerning copyright. We learned that a safe place to find photos for personal use is on the Creative Commons website. Moreover, we learned the best practices for attributing the photos we do use (a guide can be found here). All important knowledge to have moving forward as a professional.

We spent the remainder of the class reviewing our peers’ blog posts and providing them feedback. I really enjoyed reading about all the different inquiry projects going on and seeing how other learners document their journey. Furthermore, seeing all the beautiful blogs really motivated me to up my game and make some tweaks on my own site. Now as I strive to make my blog more aesthetically pleasing, I know to deliver credit where credit is due (ie. proper photo attribution).

Until next class!
