Major Changes to Copyright On the Way!

Major Changes to Copyright On the Way! | cyber citizens | Scoop.it

The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) has published the government's intentions for 'modernising copyright' in a document, aptly called Modernising Copyright. It details many changes including some to the fundamental Education Exceptions to Copyright which are to be enacted through secondary legislation by October 2013.

 

Format shifting - moving data from one platform/device to another for personal or study purposes will be permitted.

Copyright Exceptions for education will be 'media neutral' - they will encompass all media - films, music, etc - not just text-based media.

Teachers will be permitted to use materials within the Exceptions for teaching to 'illustrate' their teaching.

The Exceptions will cover VLEs and institutionally managed authenticated services.

There are a number of new measures to assist archives and libraries perform their work of supporting learning and teaching in the digital age.

Further measures to support 'Disability' are also being introduced.

Teaching information literacy is the purvue of all educators.

Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, March 12, 2013 3:43 AM

This applies to all educational settings, not just universities.

Sue Hickson's curator insight, March 14, 2013 7:50 PM

A strategic focus on information literacy teaching that involves collaboration in the teaching of info skills, from educational designers, academics, IT staff and librarians. Needs buy in from the academic community which is not always easy to get.

Turnitin tool to help evaluate online resources (SEER) is here | cyber citizens | Scoop.it

Turnitin worked with educators to develop The Source Educational Evaluation Rubric (SEER), an interactive rubric to analyze and grade the academic quality of Internet sources used by students in their writing.  Instructors and students who use SEER can quickly evaluate a website and arrive at a single score based on five criteria scaled to credibility: Authority, Educational Value, Intent, Originality, and Quality.

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | cyber citizens | Scoop.it

Curation is a valuable skill for today’s learner. In a culture of content overload, members that provide great content to their audience will be recognized leaders in network communities. Optimally, we equip students to differentiate good content from bad in preparation for their further education and careers. Curating an online topic (and allowing comments) also increases self-awareness and provides additional insight from others. The nuances of sharing content and writing to an audience become much better understood through interactivity between the curator and participating audience.

I completely agree with this post. I fully integrated it into one of my courses last year. Students had to choose a potential future career and create a scoop.it page to help them learn about that field. Most feedback was positive. A few students still use it seven months after the grades have been turned in!

So virtual reality applications have the potential to transform our social and learning reality. They have the potential to transform the way we read and interact with text. They have the potential to transform the way and the places where we teach and the relationship between teachers and learners.

#ETMOOC over the next two weeks, we will be exploring what it means to be digitally literate | cyber citizens | Scoop.it

So over the next two weeks, we will be exploring what it means to be digitally literate. We’ve invited some amazing thinkers including Doug Belshaw, Howard Rheingold, Will Richardson, and Audrey Watters to lead us through certain aspects of this topic (see the Calendar for specific dates and times). And, as always, we’re hoping that the #etmooc community will participate through writing and commenting in our collective blog spaces, using the #etmooc hashtag on Twitter, in our Google Plus Community, and in other spaces of choice.
