Paying attention to Copyright
Even though you are creating flipcharts for your lessons or students creating projects in an education environment; fair use on the Internet is a gray area that every educator needs to know. When sharing projects, flipcharts, and information on wikis and blogs be sure to credit your resources. Images, graphics, and music found on the internet through searches are NOT all copyright free.
