Educational Fair Use and Creative Commons Eugene Butler Middle School Professional Development By Christyl Dodd
The purpose of this presentation is to eliminate some of the fear associated with the Fair Use Doctrine. Media Literary has only been part of the ELA learning schedules since the textbook adoption two years ago. As a result many teachers are reluctant to make the most of Media Literary Education out of fear that they might get in trouble with copyright laws. The reality it that Fair Use works in favor of you, the user. We can adapt the standard of fair use to meet changing needs. The following slides will provide you with a brief overview of the guidelines for best practices of fair use for Media Literacy Education.
Media Literacy Media Literacy relates to receiving, producing, analyzing, and communicating through means of mass media, popular culture, and digital media. Media literacy happens any time a person encounters information or entertainment .
What is Fair Use for Media Literacy? It is the right to use copyrighted material without obtaining permission or payment when there is a social or cultural benefit. The Code of Best Practices outlines 5 principles that were deemed acceptable practices for Media Literacy Well…yes, but with benefits!
Fair Use and YOU –The Teacher Key Points: Only use what is necessary for the educational goal or purpose for which it was made. Whenever possible, provide credit and appropriate citations.
Fair Use and The Student Key Points: The key is “transformation”!!! Should not extend beyond the educational goal If student work incorporates, modifies, or re-presents existing media thus meeting the transformative standard, it can be distributed to wider audiences. Cite your sources!!! Press Play! The above video is an example of transformation (also a great video for introducing mood in an ELA classroom)
