Time to chill and participate in some much needed and well-deserved recreational activities to recharge those batteries.

How do we measure and scale success? In the still-emerging edtech industry, educators and entrepreneurs alike are trying to answer those questions, often through pilot programs or efficacy trials."

The You Want to Know About Copyright in Education Infographic

The You Want to Know About Copyright in Education Infographic | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

As I’ve mentioned before—it is not only important for educators to encourage students to push the technological envelope, but it’s equally essential that we teach them to navigate the digital world in a responsible manner. But in order to do so, we must first become familiar with copyright rules and fair use guidelines ourselves—a task that can seem very daunting and frustrating at times.

 

If you’ve ever used online materials for teaching and learning, then I’m sure you have wondered one or more of the following: Do I need permission to use this image? Can I share this video on my classroom web site? Would it be best for my me and/or my students to create my/their own media?

 

Well, it may not answer all of your burning questions, but the copyright flowchart shown below will surely help with some of the confusion surrounding this very relevant and significant topic.
