Demonstrate an understanding of the relevant issues and the strategies available to support the safe, responsible and ethical use of ICT in learning and teaching.

Intellectual Property:
By the end of Year 6 students:

- apply practices that comply with legal obligations regarding the ownership and use of information resources (for example naming sources, avoiding plagiarism, knowing what may or may not be copied) (ACARA)

Students develop ICT capability within a context of social and ethical protocols and practice. This element involves students in developing an understanding of:

intellectual property pertaining to digital information
digital information security, including the responsibility to:
protect the rights, identity, privacy and emotional safety of online audiences
avoid and prevent cyber bullying
ensure security of self and/or others
respect audiences, being aware of the portrayal of self and others
the benefits and consequences of ICT for individuals, groups and communities in society, such as:
becoming drivers of ICT, seeing themselves as creators as well as consumers of ICT
recognising its capacity to enhance participation and inclusion
analysing how changes in technology impact on and relate to changes in society. National Professional Teaching Standards Australian Curriculum ICT General Capability Focus Area 4.5 ICT in learning and teaching ... Classroom Application Reference: How can we incorporate strategies and resources, like 'Creative Commons', to promote the safe, responsible and ethical use of ICT in learning and teaching within our classrooms? A lesson example: Safely? Responsibly? Ethically? students are being prepared for future education and our changing world as ICT advances continue.

Specifically, with Creative Commons...

we are educating students to be safe online and be aware of legal obligations.
we are being responsible online as teachers, modeling the correct behaviour and also getting the opportunity to copy, share and use things from the internet, LEGALLY!

'Creative Commons' Applying social and ethical protocols and practices when using ICT More Specifically > How we can develop these practices? One way is... - secures personal information
- uses safe websites and acknowledges what is safe and what isn't online
- can operate ICT equipment appropriately and safely - responsible socially and knows the risks of cyber-bullying and how to prevent this
- responsible with personal security
- follows appropriate copyright conducts
- references and uses information and images legally correct
- understands where to go and search to be ethically responsible and safe online But, how is this connecting to our curriculum capabilities? Why do students need to be taught this? How can we teach students these issues? National Professional Teaching Standard 4.5 & The Australian Curriculum ICT General Capability Stay safe online Save and share legally Be Creative Commons savvy License your own work Be a smart global sharing citizen Did you know it is illegal to save google images and use them? It is also illegal to use copyrighted things like music for your own presentations! In schools, most of the time, this is how students have been taught to operate! Let's change this! research online!! Creative Commons Search Engine Using the creative commons search engine teachers and students can search for content (images and alike) that are licensed by the creators for re-use. This way we are instructing students to behave socially and ethically responsible online. AND you will meet the... http://search.creativecommons.org/ Look for licenses and create your own too! When using 'Creative Commons' searches and looking at other peoples work, we can identify their copyright stance. Students can be taught the CC codes and identify whether they can use the content or not. More so, we can teach students to behave ethically online by referencing appropriately the CC license associated with others' works. AND We can even promote students to be safe and socially responsible online by going as far as getting them to create their own CC licenses. In our ever changing world, ICT and education are becoming partners. If we have students working on projects, creating their own digital contents, we can instruct them to license their work safely and ethically. This is giving them an opportunity to put their footprints on the global, digital, educational online world. http://creativecommons.org/choose/ Getting students to use creative commons = + In the classroom! AITSL's new standards for teachers states we must: = Making the change! Students would be asked to save any images found on CC in a document with the CC license reference and URL where found
Throughout a literacy lesson, we are also incorporating one of the ICT general capabilities. Students are researching for their new topics, whilst behaving ethically online and using safe research tools.
By working with students, through modeling, demonstrating and questioning we are informing students not only HOW to use CC to be safe and responsible online, but also WHY they need to do so. This needs to be done through continuous use of the ICT capabilities throughout lessons and informing students the reasons why they must be safe, instead of just making them do it.
