Ryan 216 Library Media Center
Library Open Access
One of the main purposes of the Library Squad this year will be to serve as tutors to struggling students. If you have a student who is experiencing difficulty and could use some extra help from a peer, advise them to sign up for a Library Pass! I will match your student up with a tutor that is appropriate for their needs.
Tech Tip- Pixabay
http://Pixabay.com is an excellent website that students (and teachers) can use to find photos for projects and presentations. All pictures are published under a Creative Commons Public Domain license. Students may copy, modify, and distribute these photos, and no attribution is needed.
To download photos, students (or you) would need to do three things.
- login to Pixabay
- choose the size photo you want to download
- click download
*Remember- just because it is on the Internet, that does not mean that you have the right to use it as your own! We are all guilty of searching Google images for photographs or pictures that can enhance our presentations and lessons. However, we must remember that if we do not give credit to the source, then we are plagiarizing! Let's set an example for our students by using great digital citizen practices. *
