Please feel free to share this video – especially with your students. Although there are many videos available on the topic of Creative Commons licenses, we are sure you will agree that the most powerful teaching model is students teaching students. We will be sharing both videos with our EGUSD Digital Citizenship Site Coordinators. It is always our recommendation that when teaching a lesson or unit on copyright and fair use, it’s important to also introduce Creative Commons licensing. For more information on Creative Commons, please refer to Can I Use That? A Guide to Creative Commons, our ever-growing Google doc.
