"On parle beaucoup de la question du plagiat en milieu scolaire et universitaire, mais le droit d’auteur a bien d’autres impacts sur la sphère éducative. Enseigner et étudier [...] vous ne pourrez utiliser que des oeuvres éditées sur support papier, sauf pour les images, qui peuvent être nativement numériques. Que pour chaque oeuvre utilisée, professeurs et élèves sont censés vérifier si les titulaires de droits concernés sont bien membres des sociétés de gestion collective signataires des accords.

Qu’on ne peut utiliser que des extraits d’oeuvres, sachant que cela correspond à 5 pages consécutives pour les livres, mais seulement 4 pages pour le cas particulier des manuels (!).

"Why teach with infographics?

- help students make sense of vast amount of information

- organize and group related information together

- tell a story

- connect information

- make raw data more appealing to most learners who are visual

- understand complex relationships between data over time

- analyze and interpret information [...]"
