¿Dónde has encontrado los recursos?

I used www.merlot.org, www.oercommons.org, search.creativecommons.org and www.google.com.

¿Qué palabras clave has utilizado? ¿Cómo las has elegido?

I looked up “smoking” and found everything I needed. If I had not been able to find other resources, I thought about other keywords, such as “coughing”, “lungs” and “ashtray”, all related to smoking and its consequences for one’s health.

While searching with Merlot, OERCommons and Creative Commons, I did not worry much about the picture’s license since I knew those websites only admit Open Educational Resources, but when I started looking up for pictures and texts in Google, I made sure I would only find OERs by using the advanced settings option.

¿Qué podrías hacer con ellos en función de las licencias que poseen?

It depends on the individual license of each resource, but I can use all of them freely as long as I follow the Creative Commons guidelines attached to each resource, such as crediting the person who created and uploaded the picture, video or text. If I am in doubt of what exact license a resource has but I know that it is an OER, I should follow the most strict license (CC BY-NC-ND) to prevent any legal issues.

¿Qué consideraciones relativas a la calidad has realizado para determinar que es un recurso adecuado y pertinente?

For the pictures, I made sure they did not look too boring, and were not similar between each other. I also did not want them to look very lively, since I would want to transmit a negative image about smoking, so that my students knew smoking is a dangerous practice. For the text, I tried to find a text that could be understood by an eleven-year old child.
