Copyright Clarity: Using Copyrighted Materials for Digital Learning – Renee Hobbs
"To promote creativity, innovation and the spread of knowledge."
Who is telling the story?
Educational Use Guidelines are NOT the Law!
Intellectual property is the 2nd largest export that we have.
People may use copyrighted material “for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship or research.” ~Section 107, Copyright Act of 1976
The copyright law balances the rights of owners and users by deciding if the benefits the users more than it hurts the owners.
Is your use of copyrighted materials a fair use?
Nature, purpose, effect, amount
1. Did the unlicensed use “transform” the material taken from the copyrighted work by using it for a different purpose than that of the original, or did it just repeat the work for the same intent and value as the original?
2. Was the material taken appropriate in kind and amount, considering the nature of the copyrighted work and of the use?
Did I transform the work or did I copy it?
User’s Rights video ala Schoolhouse Rock
Transformativeness = add value + repurpose
Transforming to make something new = fair use

Two good books:
Switch by Chip Heath & Dan Heath
Change or Die by Alan Deutschman
To effect change we need to elicit the emotional AND rational responses to ‘yeah but’
Brainstorm with the teachers (perhaps by a facilitator) what is good and bad about what change you are proposing…allows teachers to publically express “yeah but”
Can you Hear Me Now? Next Level of Mobile Learning – David Thornburg
The network is the computer.
Metcalfe’s Law > Moore’s Law
If the network is the computer, the browser is the OS.
Computing as a service
Internet world of stats
Mainframe computers + 40 years = iPhone
