The Maccabeats and Naturally 7 teamed up to do a lovely cover of James Taylor’s Shed a Little Light. What a great video to share with students! And if you want to share the lyrics as well, I’ve created a Google doc with them.

 

Creative Commons. Creative Commons. Creative Commons. I can’t say it enough. What’s Creative Commons? That’s the licensing protocol that allows creators to share their creations and say it’s okay (or it’s not okay) for people to use/reuse/remix their stuff. With our digital citizenship curriculum materializing, we’re doing our students a disservice if we continue to allow them to simply do a web search for images and use whatever they find. One solution is to use a search engine that only returns results that are copyright-free. One such resource is Pixabay. You can do a search and then filter by photos, videos, or illustrations. Give it a shot!

Got plans this summer? Check out the National Endowment for the Humanities summer programs website for an impressive listing of summer programs. Stipends are available.

NoCamels is an innovative name for an innovative website about, well, innovations in Israel. It’s ad-supported and a little annoying, but there’s good info on there and it would be a great destination for a student seeking current events articles.

The Google Cultural Institute website is an extraordinary collection of works that are searchable and browsable. A search of “Chagall” returned information about the artist, links to four exhibits and 278 items. There are 950 collections in this impressive resource, including museums, Carnegie Hall, Yad Vashem, the Metropolitan Opera, Life’s photo collection and more.
