ESBC '16

Activity 1
Images and Attribution/Creative Commons

    In the videos about giving and taking credit for other people's work, students must give attribution to others if they want to use their images, artwork, or text.  Sometimes, if credit for someone else's work is not given, the owner of the work can take action - legal action.  If the owner allows for his/her work to be used,  they may grant a license. This means that they will permit or allow others to use their work. In one video about giving attribution,  students’ artwork had different names on them, not their own. On purpose, the teacher wanted students to feel what it was like to have others use their work without asking for permission. Students did not like that others earned credit for their work and felt badly for taking credit for others’ work.  
Share-alike is a copyright licensing term to describe works or licences that require copies or adaptations of the work to be released under the same or similar licence as the original. Derivatives are something based on a different source or “A derivative work is a work based on or derived from one or more already existing works. Common derivative works include translations, musical arrangements, motion picture versions of literary material or plays, art reproductions, abridgments, and condensations of preexisting works (” In short, always give credit to others for their work unless they have specifically granted permission!

About Me

     My name is Liana, and I'm in 7th grade. I'm 12 years old and since I was 4, I wanted to be a doctor. I love food and specially the restaurant Hook, I also play piano, tennis, and karate. My favorite colors are pink, turquoise, and neon yellow. My family and I moved from Iran about 4 years ago but it's funny that my dad already went to  middle school for 2 years in the U.S. I also have a 2 year old brother that sometimes cries so much at night, so it is really hard to sleep. If I would want to go on vacation I would love to take a trip to Europe, France, and Italy.
