Some recent links from my Pinboard. Mostly related to open resources.
- The Crusade for Curious Images | OpenGLAM
n December last year the British Library released over a million images on to Flickr Commons. …
… The Curious Images event held yesterday offered a whirlwind tour of the reuse of the images by artists, researchers and other institutions and of the challenges that tracking use and finding appropriate images continue to pose.
- A fellow DS106 participant, Ron Leunissen from the Netherlands was among the winners GIF IT UP winners | OpenGLAM
GIF IT UP was an open competition to find the most excellent GIFs reusing openly licensed images and video from the collections searchable on the sites of the two digital libraries.
I think there is real potential for teaching about open licensing, copyright while having some fun and learning a bit about image editing through the creative use of openly licensed media.
- Monsters Are Real – Biodiversity Heritage Library a nice collection of open licence images. The Biodiversity Heritage Library works collaboratively to make biodiversity literature openly available to the world as part of a global biodiversity community.
- Lots more of this sort of thing at the OpenContentToolkit provide a gateway to contemporary and historical open digital media content from media archives and collections around the world. It is a space to explore, discuss and share examples of the use of open media at all school stages and at all levels of education.
