1/25 Tech Tip: Digital Citizenship

    

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This week’s Tech Talk topic is: Digital Citizenship

One of the six components to the ISTE NETS-S standards is digital citizenship. One of our responsibilities is to teach students how to practice appropriate legal and ethical behavior in the digital world so they can create a positive digital footprint.

Currently, the district technology committee is revamping its digital citizenship plan. Until the plan is finalized, I wanted to provide you with some Internet resources that you can use if you need or want to address an issue within your classroom.

I created a LiveBinder with a variety of Internet resources. (You can also find the LiveBinder on the resources page of my school website.) Many of these sites are interactive games that address digital citizenship topics. Please let me know if you would like me to come in and help you address any of these topics.

***Side note – I have been getting a lot of questions about copyright lately. Here are some key points that may be helpful. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. (Information below obtained here.)

Motion Media

Up to 10% or 3 minutes, whichever is less, in the aggregate of a copyrighted motion media work may be reproduced or otherwise incorporated as part of a multimedia project created under Section 2 of these guidelines.

Music, Lyrics, and Music Video

Up to 10%, but in no event more than 30 seconds, of the music and lyrics from an individual musical work (or in the aggregate of extracts from an individual work), whether the musical work is embodied in copies, or audio or audiovisual works, may be reproduced or otherwise incorporated as a part of a multimedia project created under Section 2. Any alterations to a musical work shall not change the basic melody or the fundamental character of the work.

Illustrations and Photographs

The reproduction or incorporation of photographs and illustrations is more difficult to define with regard to fair use because fair use usually precludes the use of an entire work. Under these guidelines a photograph or illustration may be used in its entirety but no more than 5 images by an artist or photographer may be reproduced or otherwise incorporated as part of an educational multimedia project created under Section 2. When using photographs and illustrations from a published collective work, not more than 10% or 15 images, whichever is less, may be reproduced or otherwise incorporated as part of an educational multimedia project created under Section 2.

Have a great day!
