Teaching Copyright- A MUST READ!

Teaching Copyright- A MUST READ! | Transmedia 4 Kids | 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.

The $23,000 T-shirt: Teaching Copyright in Today’s Social Media Culture | Mediashift | PBS | Transmedia 4 Kids | Scoop.it
How much is a T-shirt or a tweet worth? Two copyright cases, separated by nearly 30 years, should reinforce our need as educators to teach copyright as a practical matter as much as a conceptual one. When it comes to working with students, we should approach copyright from two protective angles.

Why Free Play Is the Best Summer School

Why Free Play Is the Best Summer School | Transmedia 4 Kids | Scoop.it
The more time children spend in structured, parent-guided activities, the worse their ability to work productively towards self-directed goals. 
cynthia jabar's insight:

Couldn't agree more! "Parents, if you really want to give your kid a head start on coming school year, relinquish some of that time you have earmarked for lessons or sports camp and let your children play. That’s it. Just play. Grant them time free from your ulterior motives and carefully planned educational outcomes. Let them have dominion over their imaginary kingdoms while their evil dragons, white wizards, marauding armies, and grand battles for supremacy unfurl according to their whims and wills.' -Jessica Lahey
