Educators and school leaders experience growing anxiety as students and teachers wonder about what they can (and cannot) do when it comes to using copyrighted materials, including books, online materials, images, and digital files. This presentation explains how copyright law relates to the types of instructional practices that are most commonly used by K-12 teachers. In this session, we’ll clarify: 

  • The difference between copyright infringement and plagiarism
  • When it’s OK to make multiple photocopies and when it’s not
  • The overall purpose of copyright law itself and how the doctrine of fair use applies to teaching and learning
  • Differences between materials that are copyrighted and those that use a traditional fee-based licensing system or an alternative licensing system like Creative Commons
  • Strategies for building students’ understanding of plagiarism, copyright and fair use

 Note: Due to the online nature of this product, purchases are nonrefundable.
