Technology Reading and Learning Diverse Conference - San Francisco 2008
Right/Wrong - Great small group discussion with David Warlick
regarding the ethical use of the internet. David reminded us that information today is abundant and overwhelming. Students want to use that information – to think critically - to reshape it – and create something new. He challenged those in the audience to think about what that means to pedagogy.
Educators must utilize this desire to share, remix, and reuse – but we also want to teach them to do it legally. How do we get students to WANT to respect the intellectual property rights of others?
Wartlick maintains that we should make our students (k-12) intellectual property owners. He asserted that one has to be a property owner in order to respect the property of others!
Students should be introduced to Creative Commons
and taught how to share their intellectual property (podcasts, musics, pictures, etc) through Creative Commons.
