"Free to Use, Share, or Modify" With Google Apps




The Josephson Institute Center for Youth Ethics surveyed 43,000 high school students in public and private schools and found that “One out of three high school students admitted that they used the Internet to plagiarize an assignment” (Plagiarism Facts & Stats).

We’re not allowed to copy, right?  But plagiarism is still a problem for students today. And the increase in research technology is making it even easier for them to access copyright protected material. Fortunately, new innovations to Google Apps for Education can help overcome these plagiarism challenges that exist in our schools today. 

Google Apps makes it easy and convenient for students to search for material that is, “free to use, share, or modify, even commercially.”  To help spread the word, I have created two screencast tutorials that will demonstrate how to use Google Apps to integrate copyright free material that is “free to use, share, or modify” for students and teachers.  Throughout these two videos, I will clearly demonstrate how to use:


The first video will demonstrate how to use the "Research Tool" in Google Docs, and the second video will feature how to search and use copyright free multimedia such as images and video with Google SearchGoogle Presentations, and YouTube Editor.  








I hope these videos are helpful and best of luck searching and using images that are "Free to Use, Share, or Modify" with Google Apps.
