Media Literacy Education • Media Literacy plays a huge role in developing critical thinking and communication skills
What does this mean for educators? We must use and share media to increase those critical thinking and communication skills
Key Questions to ask:– “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?”– “Was the material taken appropriate in kind and amount, considering the nature of the copyrighted work and the use?”
How would you have answered? -Answers of “yes” would be considered Fair Use
