    Information Literacy for k-12 Teachers
    Teachers are, and have always been information workers. Twenty first century K-12 educators should become fluid in the use of advanced search techniques and strategies. They should be connoisseurs of different search engine (Alta Vista/ Google), academic (University), and reference (public library) databases. Teachers should develop automaticity for categorizing, organizing, updating and accessing as needed, valued diverse resources into the equivalent of digital banker boxes.
    What CreativeCommons says about themselves
    "Too often the debate over creative control tends to the extremes. At one pole is a vision of total control — a world in which every last use of a work is regulated and in which “all rights reserved” (and then some) is the norm. At the other end is a vision of anarchy — a world in which creators enjoy a wide range of freedom but are left vulnerable to exploitation. Balance, compromise, and moderation — once the driving forces of a copyright system that valued innovation and protection equally — have become endangered species.
    Creative Commons is working to revive them. We use private rights to create public goods: creative works set free for certain uses. Like the free software and open-source movements, our ends are cooperative and community-minded, but our means are voluntary and libertarian. We work to offer creators a best-of-both-worlds way to protect their works while encouraging certain uses of them — to declare “some rights reserved.”" http://creativecommons.org/
