Presentation Title
“Crossing the Copyright Boundary in the Digital Age”

Description
Copyright used to be only a problem to teachers as they tried to figure out what they could and could not use. Some just gave up and crossed their fingers. Multimedia projects loaded onto websites only made it worse because now it really did matter where you got it. Fortunately, just as the web has facilitated file sharing, it has also given birth to new ideas about copyright and how we can make the rules more user-friendly. This presentation will briefly review current copyright law, but it will focus primarily on a new trend called Creative Commons that puts power in the hands of both the creator and the consumer, who is, by the way, probably also a creator. The copyright boundary has been breached and teachers and students should be stepping through!

  1. I always try to stay away from presentations that deal with policy and the like. Boy, was I wrong! Your presentation resource materials are what I as a classroom teacher need to know about in creating content in a Web 2.0 world. I especially liked the youtube videos. The use of video for this purpose is very effective. The explanation of Creative Commons and how I can use it in my classroom really help me to publish content in my classroom. Thank you.

    I extensively use Keynote to present in class. During my presentations, I use short 20-30 second clips from television to support my information. According to the October 15, 2002 Tech Learning Copyright quiz, I can use these clips. Should I give credit to these clips? Currently, I am not crediting them.
