Copyright in Education

Copyright can be tricky for teachers.  We know that the usual rules don’t apply, but what are the rules that do?  In the sage words of one of my favorite professors at NIU, Rebecca Butler, “It depends.”  What’s more, the internet has made the world of copyright a lot more gray.  Intellectual property is easy to access and use, whether legally or not.

I found this great flow chart on Tech and Learning’s website.  If you don’t already know, you can find them at – and they publish a print magazine for FREE.  It’s really good.

Hope this helps!
