Confused About Copyright?
Well, you are not the only one. In fact, according to an Education Week article, confusion by educators is a real problem for teachers and it filters down and can be harmful to our students. Renee Hobbs' article is called "Copyright Confusion is Shortchanging Our Students." It makes me wonder if any teachers and librarians are practicing their right of Fair Use any more. Why are teachers afraid to use media when their students have no problem doing it and even download things illegally? If we want to be role models, we should not be modeling technology and classrooms of the past! It is all about Fair Use!
