Never before have educators, copyright experts, and open information advocates worked together to teach kids Copyright & Creativity for Ethical Digital Citizens™.
Copyright & Creativity for Ethical Digital Citizens™ curriculum, produced in partnership with the California School Library Association with input from a wide range of education thought leaders, legal experts, and open access advocates dedicated to helping youth understand copyright and public rights. The lesson plans, videos, activities, and handouts are designed to inspire creativity and help students make conscious choices about sharing their own creative work while understanding the value of respecting the rights of other creators.
iKeepSafe applied a rigorous development process to ensure an accurate, age-appropriate curriculum on copyright and fair use that will be easy to implement and enrich existing class lesson plans and projects.
