Copyright .....

 

 

 

It's a scary term and often misunderstood. Most teachers think if we use an item in our classroom, there is no problem - because we are using something for education. BE CAREFUL! Because of web use and publishing, it's important to teach and practice copyright use in your classroom. Here are a few sites that might help with information about copyright specifically in education.

 


 

 

 

 

         "Microsoft has just come out with a new survey on student’s attitudes towards online copyright. The research suggests that very few students have  a strong understanding of the issue, but it also makes me wonder just how they’re defining the nature of copyright,               and whether it takes into account fair use as much as it should." by Andy Carvin, PBS Teachers, LEARNING.NOW

 See the survey results in this PDF document:

 According to Wikipedia:

 

Open content, a neologism coined by analogy with "open source", describes any kind of creative work published in a format that explicitly allows copying and modifying of its information by anyone, not exclusively by a closed organization, firm or individual.

 

 

Copyrightsymbolized "©" – is a legal concept, enacted by most governments, giving the creator of an original work exclusive rights to it, usually for a limited time.
