In answer to the discussion about using kid's photos or art on web
sites...its probably in your's and your student's best interest to use
parental permission slips before publishing. Legal or not it can prevent
a lot of problems and misunderstandings. A great place to get info about
this is the TENET (Texas Educ.) site. There are several examples of
policies and forms used by different school districts. Another
recommendation is to use first names only and avoid pictures of
individual kids...try using group shots instead or just their art work.
This is what I do... by the way I'll be happy to share my permission
slip. You can also check out my web site at:
I've found that using the site to publish the student's work has been a
great incentive, not to mention good p.r. Likewise, the middleschool
kids that I teach get a lot of hands on experience with capturing and
digitizing their art work this way. Recently I've had one of my classes
working with animation, and one student just finished animating our home
page. It seems to work fine with netscape on our macs but let me know if
any of you discover any glitches. We're planning on using "Goo" to
animate the Mona Lisa picture on the departures page (which is where you
can find a link to TENET). Hope this is of some help. Terry
