As the school year kicks off, this page has a variety of excellent resources you can use in your library or classroom to help explain copyright. This is a crucial facet of a good digital citizenship program and these resources can be printed and used at your school.

Joyce Valenza's curator insight, August 16, 2014 4:17 PM

A variety of resources worth sharing with learners.

What Teachers Need to Know about The New Creative Commons 4.0 Licenses ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

What Teachers Need to Know about The New Creative Commons 4.0 Licenses ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

May 5, 2014
Creative Commons has recently rolled out its new 4.0 licenses and made it available for adoption worldwide. This is a fruit of two years of hard work to overcome some of the weaknesses that marked the 2011 version CC licenses .Some of the features and improvements included in 4.0 licences which make them easily shared and re-used include : improved readability and organization and common-sense attribution.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Creative Commons nuances copyright to make open educational resources a true avenue for distributing your intellectual and creative insights.  Bread upon the waters!

useful info on sharing info

Elizabeth Dalton's curator insight, May 16, 2014 7:50 AM

As we seek to share our creative work - and yet to protect it in a way that retains integrity but allows flexibility - Creative Commons licenses had much to offer.  Here are their most recent updates: Creative Commons Licenses 4.0.  If you are sharing your work online, you should consider applying these licenses to your work.

Who "owns" teacher created materials? - Home - Doug Johnson's Blue Skunk Blog | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Question of the week:

I have a teacher that has created a creative commons curriculum.  It's on a Google Site.  It is amazing.  My problem  is that he has created it on his professional site - which is a a public Google site and and he has purchased a domain name for it.  While he has clearly licensed it under Creative Commons, I have concerns about what would happen if he leaves, if he got hit by a bus, etc.   Do you have any thoughts to this or a policy?  We dont care that he has developed CC curriculum. I am more concerned about the physical space it resides on - and lack of district control.  Should I be?

How To Keep Copyright On eLearning Content You Create

How To Keep Copyright On eLearning Content You Create | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Several eLearning professionals wonder "what happens with the eLearning content they create for a company"? Do eLearning developers have the right to maintain copyrights and reuse their eLearning work or their employer is its sole owner?

Via Patricia Christian
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

As a long time freelance writer I always hang on to my copyright.  I recall turning down work for hire jobs because I knew the payoff was in the long haul, not the immediate paycheck.  Hang on to your copyright or negotiate for shared copyright.  If push comes to shove, be ready to walk if you get a low ball offer with no rights attached.

21CIF: The Four Factor Fair Use Test

21CIF: The Four Factor Fair Use Test | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Fair Use is a subtle concept and can only be decided in a federal court. However, if the use of the copyrighted materials has an educational purpose, is relevant to the lesson, part of classroom instruction and not broadcast or published for general consumption you are most likely protected by fair use.



Here are the four factors in a nutshell (for more information, we recommend checking the annotated resources for Fair Use)

Teaching Copyright- A MUST READ!

Teaching Copyright- A MUST READ! | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

This curriculum is designed to give teachers a comprehensive set of tools to educate students about copyright while incorporating activities that exercise a variety of learning skills. Lesson topics include: the history of copyright law; the relationship between copyright and innovation; fair use and its relationship to remix culture; peer-to-peer file sharing; and the interests of the stakeholders that ultimately affect how copyright is interpreted by copyright owners, consumers, courts, lawmakers, and technology innovators.

 

The lesson plan concludes with a mock trial that tests the students' understanding of copyright and its limitations and encourages them to consider the positions of each party involved.
