Creative commons for Schools

  1. 1. Our goal: “To realise the potential of the internet.”
  2. 2. Our goal: “Universal access to research and education, full participation in culture.”
  3. 3. More free More restrictive 1 1. Free Licences
  4. 4. 2. Projects
  5. 5. Schools: Creative Commons Policies
  6. 6. First point: The potential of digitial technologies and the internet to share, collaborate and reuse works.
  7. 7. Second point: It hasn't always been easy to build on other works ('read-only')
  8. 8. Family watching television, c. 1958. National Archives and Records Administration. 1944 – 2006. No known copyright.
  9. 9. Third point: The technical barriers to access and reuse are dropping ('read- write')
  10. 10. Screenshot from ‘Lego Life Lessons - Safety Tips for Walking to School’ by the Manning Brothers. Made available under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike licence.
  11. 11. Fourth point: This is changing the production and consumption of culture
  12. 12. “83% of young people that we surveyed said they have used a computer to create their own art in the past 12 months.” Creative New Zealand
  13. 13. 22% of the general population said they have used a computer to create their own art in the past 12 months. Creative New Zealand
  14. 14. “Digital art has emerged as the artform that young people most want to be more involved with.” Creative New Zealand
  15. 15. Fifth point: Obvious potential to share a massive amount of educational resources for reuse
  16. 16. 50,000+ teachers 2,500+ schools Enormous potential to save time, money & frustration.
  17. 17. 50,000+ teachers 2,500+ schools Enormous potential to share & collaborate.
  18. 18. Sixth point: The legal barriers to dissemination & reuse remain.
  19. 19. Copyright is very restrictive. Automatic. Applies online. No 'c' required. Lasts for 50 years after death.
  20. 20. This means you legally need an exception or permission.
  21. 21. Exception = Fair Dealing (v limited)
  22. 22. Permission = 1. Collecting society licences (limited) 2. Creative Commons (open) 3. Out-of-copyright (v open) 4. Other forms of permission
  23. 23. Seventh point: This produces a disconnect between the law and (positive) engagement with online culture and knowledge.
  24. 24. Eighth point: Teachers don’t own copyright to resources they produce in the course of their employment.
  25. 25. Ninth point: Most schools don't have clear IP policies on sharing & reuse.
  26. 26. What to do? “Grayson, Westley, Stanislaus County, Western San Joaquin Valley, California. Seventh and eighth grade class in Westley school after lesson in Geography” 1940, US National Archives 83-G-41445, via Flickr. No known copyright.
  27. 27. Here's the pitch: Creative Commons licences are clear, simple, free, legally robust and used by government.
  28. 28. Here's the pitch: CC shifts the conversation from what students can’t do to what they can
  29. 29. Here's the pitch: CC policies clarify IP at schools, while enabling sharing and collaboration.
