Notes from the bookmarks I’ve made this week.
There is an awful lot of giffing going on.
- 1840s GIF party: call for submissions at the Tate (yep the Tate!)
- The GIF the Portrait Project
- along with Jim Groom’s The Academic GIF.
#walkmyworld is an interesting hash tag
Over the next ten weeks, we would like you all to share (once a week) with us a “walk” in your “world.” There really are no rules to this challenge. The only real “rule” to this challenge is that we ask that you share this publicly on Twitter, and include the hashtag (#walkmyworld) in your post.
Here is my first effort on instagram.
Some Heavy Hitters
- School Leadership – A Scottish Perspective George Gilchrist’s blog was added to the ScotEduBlogs aggregation
- David Cameron talked on Radio EDUtalk about What do we need to do to get real improvement in Scottish Education? While we had the @realdcameron rather than that prime minister with the same name:
- Inside Learning had Mike Russell which I look forward to listening to on the train.
It is getting more common
For institutions to release images under Creative commons licenses. This week I bookmarked Thousands of years of visual culture made free through Wellcome Images
We are delighted to announce that over 100,000 high resolution images including manuscripts, paintings, etchings, early photography and advertisements are now freely available through Wellcome Images.
Not the easiest site to use, no embed codes for example, but another welcome(sorry) addition to a growing set of wonderful creative commons resources.
