Infographic on Creative Commons – What Can You Use? How do You Cite?

Digital Literacy includes obeying copyright and fair use laws. I’ve written about this in my article, “How to Find License Free Content for School Projects” and it has been highlighted by Edutopia in “Copyright and Fair Use For Educators.”

I recently came across a great infographic that highlights how to use and credit creative commons licensed content by foter.com. You can check it out below!

Copyright and Fair Use for Educators

One of the key components of Digital Literacy is understanding the concept of copyright (protected physical and intellectual material) and Fair Use (limited exceptions granted to educational environments). This is a notoriously gray area in the online world. I addressed this concept in my article, “How to Find License Free Content for School Projects.” Additionally, I try to build digital literacy (including copyright issues) into my broader instructional framework. You can see an example of this in my recent article, “Student Documentaries in History Class.”

Edutopia addresses this issue in their 5 minute video collection, “Copyright and Faire Use for Educators.” This assemblage addresses concerns across grade levels and subject matter. If you would like to see an example of one of these videos, checkout Copyright on Campus’ video below:
