Facebook Causes Barrow Teacher's Firing 111009 | myfoxatlanta.com - 6 views

  •  
    To me, this example is over the line but anything that takes away from your ability to teach is considered a problem and reason to fire you. I think this is no acceptable when the teacher had everything marked as private and did not allow parents nor admins on her facebook page - again, facebook is not secure.

    An excellent article to make the case for digital citizenship education, I love the quote at the end that the law "can't take the place of good manners, social norms, and etiquette." Do we think that students just develop good manners on their own? Perhaps manners, norms, and etiquette would much better evolve with multiple generations and ages working together as we discuss and grapple with such issues. This is another excellent article about the changing state of the law and the Internet and includes the precedent that anonymous doesn't really mean anonymous any more - particularly if the anonymous person breaks the law.

Preteen girls charged over Facebook sex prank - 1 views

  •  
    ""Many kids think that on a social media site that their actions will be anonymous and that they are free to use it as weapon to bully, harass, and intimidate another person.

Fair use and theft | Kris Straub | humor scientist - 0 views

  •  
    "The reason why eBaumsworld gets away with so many video thefts is that there's no way to search for a video or picture if it doesn't have associated text you could search for." I think that every video and picture should have associated words so no they could not take the video and take credit for it.

Posting materials for distance learning. Developing databases of copyrighted works for research. Sharing articles and other materials with colleagues. Developing digital libraries.

Copyright Education: Copyright Law - Copyright Clearance Center - 0 views

  •  
    "Why Copyright Matters Information is everything. It points the way to advances in science and medicine, innovations in business and technology and achievements in education and the arts. The cost of research, writing and editing is substantial and the efforts often Herculean. Some books are the result of years of individual effort; others are the product of ground-breaking collaboration. Either way, without the protections guaranteed by our copyright laws, many of the works we enjoy and rely upon today would never exist" this shows why copyright is important, and people should look at this.
