Finally, a book that dispels confusion around the use of copyrighted materials in the classroom!
Today, educators and students have access to a vast, rich array of online materials that can be used for instruction, but these resources often remain untapped because of confusion over copyright laws.
In this slim, jargon-free guide, media literacy expert Renee Hobbs presents simple principles for applying copyright law and the doctrine of fair use to 21st-century teaching and learning. Complete with a ready-to-go staff development workshop, this book explores:
- What is permissible in the classroom
- Fair use of digital materials such as images, music, movies, and Internet elements found on sites such as Google and YouTube
- Trends in intellectual property law and copyright practices
- Classroom projects using copyrighted materials
Copyright Clarity helps educators unlock Internet and digital media resources to classrooms while respecting the rights of copyright holders.
