This is a lesson and accompanying resources to teach students to:
· Understand copyright, including legal and social aspects
· Understand open licenses including CC and GFDL
· Find open licensed images, incorporate them into a document, and include an appropriate credit
This resource provides everything necessary to teach students about copyright. The unit seems to be most appropriate for the middle school/high school levels for which it is targeted, yet an introduction to copyright at an early age will begin to create awareness. The content of the resource is thorough and the PowerPoint is professional. There are opportunities for the individual teacher to tweak the presentation to make it his or her own. The pedagogy of this unit includes presentation and interaction, and guides the student through finding, using and crediting open licensed images into a document.
Wonderful resource. I'm currently teaching an 8 week media literacy/ service learning workshop to middle school students. This week students are learning about blogging and podcasting. This resource will be a great addition to the lesson plan to show youth how to incorporate writings, photos and music into their blogs and cite sources. Thank you!
What an excellent resource! I look forward to using this with my students. Thank you for posting this very important information.
