While exploring these tools, I've been "fine tuning" my Web 2.0 list for schools. I created a list of 25 Web 2.0 sites for education over a year ago -- but a lot has changed since then. More sites have been developed and more tools are available to students and educators than ever before.

The Educator’s Guide to Copyright, Fair Use, and Creative Commons The Edublogs support team regularly receives complaints and official requests to remove copyrighted content that users have placed on blogs. The legal jargon with respect to digital copyrights can be confusing – especially since different countries have their own laws and regulations.

A Visual Guide To Creative Commons Licensing A Visual Guide To Creative Commons Licensing Creative Commons licensing was one of the best things that ever happened to the internet. Where once the internet was an untamed beast overran by plagiarism, non-attributed image theft, copyright confusion, and super shaky sense of who owns what–well, really that hasn’t changed for most. But for those paying attention, Creative Commons licensing offers an oasis of both simple rules and a communal framework that allows both media publishers and media consumers the ability to be on the same page. This is especially important in education, where teachers and students take to the internet daily to find, curate, publish and share every form of digital media.

3-D Printers: Understanding Copyright, Fair Use, and More Libraries have been on the front lines of the digital revolution since its beginning. 3-D printing is the latest wave of this revolution, which continues to fundamentally change the way we access, process, and produce information. This technology brings digitization to the physical marketplace for the first time, by allowing people of all ages to use digital processes to create tangible items that can be used, traded, bought and sold. It promises progress across numerous industries and sectors. The burgeoning field of “bioprinting”—the printing of human organs—creates new opportunities for medical research; the use of 3-D printing in defense manufacturing enhances U.S. national security by allowing for the more efficient production and delivery of intricate items used by the military; and the successful deployment of 3-D printing technology to outer space heralds a day when thousands of miles and a lack of gravity no longer constrain the delivery of supplies to astronauts.

Copyright resources for teachers August 12, 2014 Now that the new school year is about to start, it would be great to devote a session with your students where you can talk to them about issues related to copyright and proper use of digital artifacts from the net. This will definitely help them make better and informed decisions as to the kind of materials they are allowed to use in their work and provide them with practice on the different ways they can appropriately credit sources. This resourceful page embeds a wide variety of materials to use in this regard, browse through the items featured there and bookmark the ones you plan to use with your students. I am also sharing with you this wonderful graphic that debunks 5 myths about copyright infringement.

Copyright: Will We Always Be Behind the Times? I dusted off my copyright presentation the other day, getting ready to talk to a journalism class full of juniors. The task the teacher and I were hoping to accomplish was to help the students better understand copyright and the use of digital images in their online blog magazine publications. As I prepared, just for fun, I pulled the books on copyright that I have as resources for staff in our professional collection. I am embarrassed to tell you that the first thing I found was NEA’s Copyright Primer for Librarians and Educators from 1995! I then proudly pulled out Copyright Clarity by Renee Hobbs only to discover that it is already almost six years old!
