Description of presentation:

You've found another teacher's lesson plans online. They're perfect for your upcoming unit. The author did not copyright them so you decide to print the lessons out and use them in your classroom. Are you violating copy right and fair use laws? What exactly is copyright and fair use? Have you heard the term Creative Commons but don't know what it is? Is this affecting your teaching practices and limiting your ability to be innovative in your instruction? This session will explore these questions and will provide you with resources that you and your students can use to avoid legal fallout.
