Session description

"The World Wide Web, peer-to-peer networks, and other evolving technologies make it easy to locate digital content. Easy access to content does not always include rights to that content. Participants in this session will learn the basics of copyright law and the principal of "fair use", then explore alternative sources of audio, video, text, and graphics. Participants will learn how to find and use copyright-free stock photography and clipart, public domain works of classical literature, free-for-non-commercial-use video clips, and other forms of unrestricted content suitable for ntegration into classroom instruction. Participants will also learn how to label their own work for further sharing with the educational community and the world at large."
