I think as educators we have the responsibility to model, teach, and encourage our students to adhere to copyright laws and the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Media Literacy Education.
In a world of Integrated Media Literacy Education there are two things that need to occur to ensure educators are living up to their responsibility:
1. We ourselves, as educators, need to be good models and follow the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Media Literacy Education. Instead of "Do as I say, not as I do", it should be "Do as I do!"
But before that can happen:
2. Everyone involved in the creation, distribution, and presentation of curriculum in all subject areas needs to know what the copyright laws are and understand the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Media Literacy.
(Those of us involved in the second course of the ISB Certificate of Educational Technology and Information Literacy Program: 21st Century Literacy Ideas, Questions, and Issues, are getting the information and training that we want and need. But what about everyone else?)
So now the question is: "What is a school's role in making sure that their educators are prepared to use Fair Use and teach students to use it, too?"
