Saul Duarte
In alignment with the "digital citizen" standard of International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE)'s Standard for Educators, this presentation will discuss how digital citizenship and issues of copyright intersect in the classroom. Educators often use online resources to teach CS without considering the behavior they're modeling for students around ownership of intellectual property. It's imperative for educators to understand the legal and ethical implications of using digital resources for instruction, projects, and social media. Participants will explore and apply the roles copyright and copyleft play in commonly used digital tools, discover resources to teach students about copyright, and learn how to leverage digital resources safely through the understanding and use of Creative Commons licensing.
