__The Campaign should focus on motivating Creators to use the CC Search Tool to show them the problems one has finding their existing online creative works – to help them identify the missing info, EXIF data and tags and to motivate-help them go back to add the required metadata to this existing work. The goal is to enable discovery of all © and CC creative work that is available online via a filtered Google search.

Curriculum Associates may be the most important EdTech success story you don’t know about.
It’s headquartered in North Billerica, Massachusetts, not in Silicon Valley. The former workbook publisher has never taken venture capital, instead bootstrapping an adaptive learning business from scratch. In four years, the company has grown into a $190 million blended learning giant. They extended their impact exponentially while traditional publishers shrank each year.

I often feel lonely fighting for attribution for photos openly shared for reuse under Creative Commons licenses. Beyond advocating to a level of boring people, I have built a simple browser bookmarklet tool that makes the process of getting an attribution statement for web sites a simple cut and paste operation.
It’s more or less something I made for myself, because the round trip from flickr to my blog editor was about a 6 step round trip of cut and paste, and often I was not consistent.

__The letter states that her comments were ‘delivered in the context of a Canada whose national educational publishing industry has been severely damaged by the ill-advised introduction into the Copyright Modernisation Act, in 2012, of a new ‘fair dealing’ provision for education, and the subsequent adoption of self-defined guidelines by the education sector with the stated aim of replacing the need for licences from Access Copyright or Copibec.’ __
The IPA has added its voice to those of the Union of Quebec Writers and Writers (UNEQ), the Canadian National Association of Book Publishers (ANEL) and the International Federation of Reproduction Rights Organizations (IFRRO) in response to troubling comments made by the Minister for Higher Education, Hélène David, on 9 December.
In response to a parliamentary question about whether as Minister of Higher Education and a former Minister of Culture, she would ‘send clear guidelines to Quebec universities to ensure that the creators are respected and that copyright is paid to them’, Minister David asserted that Laval University did things that are comparable (to those of Copibec), that are respectful of copyright, and that it acted ‘in accordance with the copyright principles of the federal government’.
Copibec, which represents authors, creators and publishers, has been involved in a legal dispute with Laval University which in June 2014 implemented an internal copyright policy based on the refusal to pay royalties.
The IPA wrote to the Higher Education Minister, putting the Prime Minister and Culture Minister in copy, reminding her of the importance of a national reproduction rights entity.

__David Wiley wrote the Foreword in hopes of inspiring others to feel what he feels is the value of using an open license and sharing ones copyrighted creative works _ He has also posted it in his blog
__Encourage others to add to the list of counterpoints to Wiley’s thinking, as Stephen Downes does . . . “As always, I argue that people should adopt whatever license best suits their interests. I continue to fail to understand why David Wiley doesn’t respect that choice”
David Wiley once again launches into advocacy for the CC-by license. We’ve been through this many times, so I’ll keep it relatively brief. His text is italicized.
> There is a growing consensus among those who work in open education that the Creative Commons Attribution (BY) License is our preferred license.
No there isn’t. The list of organizations hasn’t grown over the years, and the number people from this list remains stable.

__Michael Feldstein wrote this excellent article about Pearson Education’s Learning Design Principles __
Last week, Pearson announced the release of some resources they have created around science-based learning design. (Full disclosure: Pearson is a client of our consulting company, although we have not consulted with them on the subject of this post.) The resources in the release include the following:
- A 102-page rubric the company has started using for evaulating curricular products based on their effective use of learning design principles—released under a Creative Commons license
- A white paper describing how they are beginning to apply these principles to their own product designs
- A few links to descriptions of early examples of these principles as they have been applied in released products.
- A blog post providing some more background and perspective by David Porcaro, Pearson’s Director of Learning Design, whose team is behind this effort.
