Get Creative Commons Savvy With These Activities

Yesterday, I shared the EFF's lesson plans for teaching copyright. After using those plans you may want to move your students on to understanding Creative Commons. Peer 2 Peer University hosts a four module unit called Get CC Savvy. Each module contains a short video about the topic followed by a suggested activity to complete to help students understand Creative Commons in practice.

Applications for Education
Get CC Savvy from P2PU could be an excellent resource for any high school or college student to use on his or her own to gain an understanding of what Creative Commons licensing means in practice. Don't overlook the discussions that accompany the activities as the comments there add value to the exercises suggested by Get CC Savvy.

Free Courses On Copyright and Creative Commons for Educators

Next week P2PU (Peer 2 Peer University) is starting a few free online courses of interest to educators. On March 18, P2PU will offer Copyright for Educators (US law), Copyright for Educators (AUS law), and Creative Commons for K-12 Educators. Each course runs for seven weeks. You do need to register by March 17 to participate in the courses.

These are some of the key questions addressed in Copyright for Educators:
  • What is the public domain?
  • What does copyright law protect?
  • What is fair use?
  • What other exceptions are there in copyright law?
  • What are open access educational resources?
These are some of the learning objectives of Creative Commons for K-12 Educators:
  • Find educational resources that are open for sharing and remix
  • Remix open educational resources
  • Share remixes on the web
  • Attribute CC licensed materials
  • CC license your work
  • Explain CC licenses and how they work
  • Edit collaboratively
  • Work transparently
  • Advocate openness
