At what point does something become copyright protected? What happens if someone uses an image, video or music clip they did not create without the creator’s permission?   This PLC presentation covered copyright law, fair use doctrine, and creative commons along with ideas of how to allow teacher and student creativity to flourish in the midst of all the confusion.  To access the presentation, go to and click on Staff Training and PD, then Copyright or Wrong?  You can log in with the username woteacher and password woteacher.

Symbaloo: Your APPy Place

Twenty-three teachers and administrators came together on our first day of Professional Development to learn more about Symbaloo. Presenters, Nina Peery and Pam Cranford, shared examples of how they have used this curating site and showed staff members how to search, create, and customize tiles.  Webmixes were shared through gallery searches by subject and tags. Teachers were given time to sign up for their own accounts and then allotted time to work together to create a tiled reference.  HERE you will find the links to sites and webmixes shared during our training.
