Teaching Students About Copyright and Fair Use
Teachers are welcome to create their own activities, but there are many resources already available to reference and assist in teaching students about Copyright Laws and Fair Use.
The "keys" to teaching Copyright
Resource 1: Videos
To help students understand the boundaries within copyright law, there are some videos that define copyright law and give students examples of what is and what is not permissible with copyright law.
Resource 2: Lesson Plans/Activities
There are resources available that share lesson plan ideas and activities. These resources can assist teachers in organizing their lessons and activities to best suit their classes and student needs.
B4UCopy by Young Minds Inspired
This free resource provides detailed objectives, lesson ideas, and lesson activities to be shared with your students! The activities at the end get students thinking about appropriate uses of technology resources.
Teachers can submit videos, lesson plans, and activities to be shared with viewers. This particular lesson provides some good ideas to get students to critically think about copyright laws, the past and future changes to copyright laws, and current copyright issues.
Munoz Class Blog
This blog site is openly shared by a teacher who provides ideas about lessons and tools to use in class. She shares her experiences candidly and encourages viewers to post their input, ideas, lessons, and any other helpful resources as well.
Resource 3: Other
These are additional resources that can be implemented into lessons as supplemental material to help create more discussion about Copyright Law and Fair Use
Cyberbee is very straightforward. There is one page to view with students sitting at computers who ask, in a chronological order, questions about Copyright Law. The questions students may frequently ask in your classroom are most likely asked by the students on this site.
To avoid students being given misinformed information regarding copyright laws, this web page offers lesson ideas and lesson plans to help deliver accurate information to students and create opportunities for discussion and proper understanding.
With expectations from the Illinois State Learning Standards students are going to be expected to use critical thinking skills. Along with this students will be expected to show evidence. Much of this evidence will be from online resources. Students need to be taught the correct way to cite when using videos, pictures or other online sources.
Teachers need to teach students to respect works that have already been created. They need to have background in copyright laws and understand that they are used to protect the individuals creativity (Starr, 2005).
Students Need to Ask for Permission When in Doubt
Most of the resources or materials are protected under copyright laws therefore the students have to have permission. Here is a great site that will give students insight to whether he or she may need permission (Starr, 2005).
Teach Lessons to Help Students Ask for Permission
The teacher needs to provide resources to students. This will give them the opportunity to seek permission from the owner of work that has been copyrighted. Below are two helpful resources (Starr, 2005).

Teachers should teach their students how to legally use people's creative work correctly.
Copyright? What's Copyright?
Copyright on Campus
With the increase use of technology in school, students sometimes don't realize that certain images, videos, and music found online are not free to use however they may choose.
"The Internet is not public domain" (Starr, 2005).
It's "polite to ask permission" (Starr, 2005).
While most people won't be punished for using copyrighted work illegally if they are not making money off of the work, it's still best to ask for permission before using anyone's original work (Starr, 2005).
"Carefully read the licensing agreement" (Starr, 2005).
The best way to teach our students is by example. Districts should be cautious of how they use programs they have purchased. Do not distribute them without reading the agreement fully because not all agreements are the same (Starr, 2005)
"Students should recognize that it is illegal to copy software, whether you take it from the Internet or from a computer disc that belongs to someone else."
(Young Minds Inspired, 2007, pp. 6).
