“The Classroom Copyright Conundrum: Situations in Education”

Friday, October 22 @ 10:30 – 11:30 am
Presented by Brittany Fleming

What exactly is Copyright? Am I being the Copyright role model that my students and other teachers need me to be? These are questions that we all have been faced with. In this session, we will look at Fair Use and how it can help us to legally use materials in our classrooms. The session will also look at common problems that we have all faced when it comes to Copyright. Participants will leave with resources to use at their own schools.

Friday, October 22 @ 11:40 am – 12:40 pm
Presented by Julie Jamieson

Creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication are the 4 C’s of learning, but what about the 5th C? COPYRIGHT!
