Copyright Basics for K-12

Wednesday, 19 February 2020
1:00pm - 2:00pm EST
Easy access to information, along with the growing use of OERs (Open Educational Resources), can put schools at greater risk for copyright infringement. To minimize this risk, teachers, administrators, and curriculum developers should have a cursory understanding of U.S. copyright law and the implications of using and sharing copyrighted information in the classroom (in both print and digital form), as well as in student assessments and other materials. In this webinar, we’ll look at important concerns surrounding the use of copyright-protected content within the
K-12 environment.

Beneficial as both an initial exposure to copyright, as well as a refresher for those who contend with these issues regularly, Copyright Basics for K-12 is appropriate for teachers, curriculum developers, librarians, administrators and anyone who wants to gain a basic understanding of the principles and guidelines of U.S. copyright law.
