The 21st Century Classroom: Copyright and Electronic Content

Date : Feb 19, 2008
Start Time : 11 a.m. Eastern
Length : 01:00:00

The 21st century classroom is integrally tied to the Web as a portal for communication, information gathering, and recreation. Students are roaming daily in social networks such as MySpace and Facebook, voicing their opinions in blogs, conducting research, and texting with their peers. These students have come to expect the around-the-clock access to information and services with limited guidance from others.

To meet the expectations of the independent, technological student, teachers and librarians are faced with finding ways to incorporate online content and platforms into the teaching environment, whether the classroom is physical or virtual. Technological solutions, such as course management systems, have allowed educators and students to interact and share resources efficiently and the Web, for over a decade now, has expanded the reach of information beyond the library and geographical boundaries.

So, where does the issue of copyright fit in this new paradigm? How do educators and librarians navigate the complexities of copyright exemptions in the academic setting? Please join Dru Zuretti, Copyright Education Manager at Copyright Clearance Center, in this Webinar where she will discuss these issues and suggest some best practices for working with copyrighted content in today's Web 2.0 environment.
