Creative Commons

What is copyright and why do students and teachers need to know about it? Do your students take pictures, video and music from the web to use in their multimedia projects?  Is this breaking copyright?  In this session teachers will learn how they are legally permitted to use, modify or distribute the work of others.  The traditional © is not the only answer!  Creative commons licensing is flexible and gives control to the creator to license the work the way they want.   A literate person in the 21st century is both a creator and consumer of media so understanding copyright is a necessity!
