Using Video to Engage the Learner...

The following slideshow created by Richard Bryne of Technology for Teachers has important information that all teachers need to know AND TEACH, particularly regarding copyright.

As teachers, we must teach our students that although it seems that everything is FREE on the internet, there are responsibilties to give credit when using other people's information. There are also guidelines and rules about how much we can use. Most students growing up in this environment do not realize the need for copyright. They do not seem to think it applies to them. It is our obligation as teachers in this 21st Century to make sure students learn these lessons well as their lives will be in and on the inernet.

What do you do in your classroom to teach these skills? What are the top skills in this area that MUST be taught?
