*I am a Digital Teaching and Learning Specialist.
*This is a Google Slide deck that explains the anatomy of a Creative Commons License but it isn't tied to any set of standards.
*This would be helpful to share with the media specialists in my school system so that they could inform the teachers at their schools about Creative Commons licenses.
*A strength of this resources is that it gives a good overview of the different types of licenses that can be used.
*An area of growth for this resource would be to provide some real world scenarios of each of the licensing options.

I am an elementary media specialist and I could use this resource for a PD with my staff.
No information literacy strategies are integrated in subject content.
Collaboration between SLMC & teachers can be added.
This resource can be used to drive discussion about creative common licensing.
This resource is not a lesson.

I absolutely love this resource for beginning of year PD as presented by the SLMC.

No information literacy strategies are integrated in subject content

Collaboration between SLMC & teachers can be expanded

Strengths: This presentation would be great for delivering to faculty/staff and as a presentation to students conducting research in a collaboration between any content area Teacher and the SLMC.

This resource provides a concise, yet information-filled, overview of Creative Commons Licenses for all age groups. The presentation could be tailored to your audience (i.e. more image-based for younger students, etc.)

*I am a middle school librarian and would find this slide deck really useful in helping my teachers to understand the basics of Creative Commons.
*This resource informs the reader about Creative Commons but does not integrate it with a specific content area or learning activity.
*Collaboration with the school librarian could be expanded, or librarians could use this in a staff PD session.
*One strength of this resource is that it briefly summarizes the rather complicated topic of Creative Commons licenses. I also like that the author linked directly to the full text of each license for further explanation.
*An area for growth would be providing some ideas for activities to go along with this resource. It works well as a reference guide, but this slide show by itself would not prepare teachers or students to use CC licenses with confidence.

This assessment would be good to add to this presentation at the end of the slides for review: https://plato.algonquincollege.com/ac-Library/OER/license-matching-activity/story_html5.html

This is a Google Slide deck that can be used for professional development. *This resource tackles the meaning of creative commons licenses, but doesn't integrate it with any other content area. *The SLMC would play a major role in teaching this to colleagues. If this were taught to students in conjunction with a project, collaboration between the SLMC and teacher could be expanded. *One of the strengths of this resource is that creative commons is explained. Also, it is presented in a condensed slide deck -- only 13 slides. *An area of growth would be to incorporate this into a student project for greater understanding of creative commons.
