Basic Skill: Copyright

Understanding copyright is a critical basic skill every teacher should be aware of, especially when using the Internet or working with students to publish their work on the Internet. There are a wealth of resources on the Internet to understand more about copyright and how to teach the issues to your students, these include:

Here are the basics:
  • Use google's Advanced Search to locate Copyright Free images, videos, and documents
  • Use Creative commons to located audio, text, and video under a variety of licenses. Also publish your own work with a license.
  • If you need to use another persons work, contact them to see if it is ok if you are at all unsure.
  • Always cite where a resource came from if it was not your own original work.
