CopyRights

The chart that we printed off is very useful for educators. I had no idea that certain things were illegal and some things I thought teachers couldnt do, we can! Educators need to be incredibly careful when incorporating technolgy into the classroom because many copyright rules can be broken. It becomes difficult for teachers, however, when certain materials are unavailable, or a teacher has a really great idea and no resources. We all want to incorporate as much technology as possible in our classrooms so that our students have fun while learning, but we also have to keep in mind the legal aspects. Personally, I need to brush up on these copyright rules so that I do not break any laws in the future. As technology progesses, however, the laws on copyrights may also become more strick as well.
