Online resources can enhance your knowledge of the ethical use of technology and support student learning. Search for information on websites such as Creative Commons.org. or the Chicago Manual of Style: Citation Quick Guide.

Extension Ideas:

  • Students can use an automated site to generate citations such as Easy Bib or Citation Machine. Students search online and create a class list of copyright-free resources for photos, such as Pics4Learning.com.
