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.

9 Powerful (And FREE) Tools To Boost Summer Learning

9 Powerful (And FREE) Tools To Boost Summer Learning | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Rapidly approaching the dog days of summer (give or take a few days or weeks), I felt a need to share a power packed suitcase of tools that could be used to archive your summer highlights and memories. Many educators never really go on vacation. While they may appear to be leisurely sipping daiquiris on the beach, let’s be realistic… their brains are constantly running, reflecting, and mentally archiving away ideas for the next school year.

Great Tools and Apps to Teach Students Computer Programming

Great Tools and Apps to Teach Students Computer Programming | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Learning how to write a computer program is a lot like learning a new language. There are nouns, verbs, and sentences. With far fewer words than a spoken language, it may be easier too. A student of languages can pick it up just as quickly as a student of math. To help, here are a set of tools that teach computer programming.

Apple's Official Guide to Teaching with Apps | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

"This may be news to you (it was to us), but Apple has a guide for teaching with apps. Called “Using iOS Apps for Teaching & Learning,” it’s 8 pages long and really, honestly isn’t as self-embracing and superificial as you’d expect. Of course, it’s only 8 pages and acts more as an overview than the book, PD, and years of experience it actually requires to get it just right."

What Students Will Learn in the Future | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

"A lot is implied in the content areas we choose to disperse the world through. That’s essentially what classes and content areas are–perspectives to make sense of the world. If the world changes, should they change? These words and phrases that we now associate with schools, teachers, and assignments reflect our priority as a culture. This is the information and thinking we value and want our children to understand. It also implies what we think is useful, presumably (unless we’re intentionally teaching content that we think is use-less)."

Using Badges in the Classroom to Motivate Learning

Gold stars, Girl Scout badges, and Boy Scout badges—when we think about motivating our students to assist them in their learning and development, using badges in the classroom have a similar function as many of the rewards we were offered as young learners in primary schools (Ash, 2012). As a motivational tool, badges can be added to your college classroom using a fairly streamlined process, and with little or no cost to you at an individual level, or at an institutional level.
