Giving credit where credit is due...

In looking at the videos and sites about Creative Commons I found the information extremely enlightening. The fact that there is a plethora of information accessible to everyone now is a great thing, however sharing and using that information can get tricky. Educators have always tried to be careful and teach students how to make citations correctly and to give credit where credit was due. As technology changed and we are started driving on the information super highway the delineation of what was acceptable to use and how to cite it became blurry and something new to figure out. As educators we have to know where information is coming from, if and when we can use it and in what capacity. This will give us a clear indication of how to direct our students on how to navigate the web and all its information correctly. I also like the fact that there are sites that can be accessed with material that is accessible and usable.
