Yesterday, I participated in an excellent discussion on Creative Commons, Open Content, and Copyright, hosted by Steve Hargadon for the new Classroom 2.0 Live Discussions series. The panelists for the discussion included:
- Wesley Fryer - Director of Education Advocacy for AT&T in the state of Oklahoma
- Julie Linder - Education Outreach Coordinator, Electronic Frontier Foundation
- Judy Salpeter - Contributing Editor, Technology and Learning Magazine
- Scott Merrick - LS Tech Coordinator/Teacher-in-residence, University School of Nashville/Vanderbilt University
- Jim Klein (Me) - Director IS & T, Saugus Union School District
As educators' adoption of Web 2.0 technologies continues to grow, and as students and teachers continue to move from mere content consuming toward content creation, copyright and licensing issues will undoubtedly represent some of the greatest challenges in the learning environment. It is critical that we, as tech-savvy educators, endeavor to not only understand the issues at play, but also that we find ways to foster discussions around the topic of "digital citizenship" in our environments, and seek every opportunity to share our knowledge effectively with our peers.
