A little over a year ago, I had an idea to create pre-packaged sets of open-licensed photos, diagrams, maps, audio, video, etc., organized around themes that could be used by teachers or students in word-processed documents or presentations or used to create web sites or other multimedia presentations.
Now we have some new media sets available. Here’s the whole list:
- new – Beginnings of Human Civilization
- Ancient Egypt
- Ancient China
- new – Ancient Greece
- new – Ancient Rome
- improved – Civil War
- new – Westward expansion
- new – Expansion of American Industry
- new –WWI
- new – The 1920s
- new – Holocaust (Warning: Contains graphic images.)
- new – Civil disobedience
- new – Human environment interaction
- new – Dams
- new – The human body
- new – Healthy choices
- Diversity of life
- Properties of matter
- The planets
For each media element in the set, just right-click the file to find the credit, license, and source link.
There are also some generic, open-licensed music selections available here.
If you have ideas for new media sets or if there are items you’d like to see added to the above sets, let us know!
And even better, if you are interested in creating your own media sets to share with your teachers and others, here are some notes on how we did this. If you upload your work to Curriki and tag with a keyword of mediaset, we’ll all be able to find them easily.
