Fair Use in Today’s Learning Environment

I am catching up for the summer, right before vacation, and reading Bryne’s Free Technology for Teachers, an excellent resource.  Check out the full article on Fair Use and the Remix Culture for use in class next year.

The full article has reference links and great resources, read it.   I have an archive below only in the event I can’t reach the original.

For teachers interested in learning about fair use and the use of media in the classroom the Center for Social Media at American University has some excellent video explanations of fair use. The video I’ve embedded below offers an explanation of fair use as it relates to creating remixes. In addition to the video embedded below the Center for Social Media offers documents about best practices for online video. The Center for Social Media also offers video examples of best practices.
