It has never been easier to publish online or consume digital content. This comes with many advantages and can make teaching and learning so much more targeted and impactful. Living in a digital world also brings up many questions — one issue that is very important to understand is copyright.
These materials aim to provide accessible and practical information about copyright – its protections, its limitations, and its role in encouraging creativity. Rather than just emphasizing what copyright prohibits, the goal here is to offer useful and positive information about what copyright allows and how students can successfully navigate and rely on copyright in their own roles as creators. It is important to note that these materials focus on copyright in the United States. Other countries have similar frameworks, but their rules may differ on certain concepts such as fair use.
Digital Wellbeing: Tools to Balance Tech and Life
The ABLE Guide adapts content from the Distance Learning Playbook by Fisher, Frye and Hattie (Corwin Press) and focuses on four principles of learning and connects and aligns numerous digital tools to help these principles come to life within different learning environments. The four principles of learning are Relationships, Engagement, Monitor & Feedback and Demonstrating Mastery. In each of the four sections of the ABLE Guide we provide some introductory information, a vignette, some additional insights/information and then a link to a digital toolbox which aligns various digital tools to support implementation of the principle. The ABLE Guide also aligns the four principles to important standards in education. The Guide draws connections between the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) standards, the CASEL (the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning) competencies and the NSQ (National Standards for Quality Online Learning) standards. Links to each of these standards are found in the section for each principle.
