Day 3 at ISTE11...bittersweet

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

The Yeah, Buts: Answering the Top 10 Arguments Against Change
– Will Richardson & Rob Mancabelli

Book: Personal Learning Networks

How to build a framework or strategy for change.
Favorite Yeah Buts: Check out presentation for top 10 results

1. Time
2. Fear/safety
3. blocking/filtering
4. it’s always been this way
5. watering down of rigor/standards
6. no access/technology
7. not proficient at technology
8. it’s disruptive in the classroom
9. no value in classroom
10. alignment with assessment

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

Disruption events in education:
1st phonetic alphabet – Gilgamesh
2nd mass produced book, books printed before purchased – Guttenburg
3rd mobile revolution – is as important as the phonetic alphabet and mass produced book

Students should be able to write their own software. App Inventor for Android Let kids invent their own apps and share via qr codes

Howard Rheingold – 21st century literacies
Network awareness
Critical consumption

Ray Ozzie – A New Day

A new day…
Multiple interconnected devices
Living in a post-PC world
Ubiquity reigns supreme

Day 3 was bittersweet. I was ready to go home, but I met several people that I wish I had met earlier in the week--shared passions and great conversations. Just more to look forward to next year in San Diego!
