Copyright Friendly Resources

Very Important!

When using images (or any other material) from the Internet within any classroom project you must credit the site from which you copied the image. If you are creating multimedia projects that will be displayed on the Internet, you must have Copyright permission to use any images within your work.

General rule: check the copyright on each site you use. 'Classroom use only' does not imply use for projects that will appear on the web. No Copyright does not imply permission. You may email site webmasters for permission of otherwise Copyrighted material. (McMillan, 2007)
