Now that we discussed fair use within the schools, how do we ensure that these guidelines are being implemented. One way is to create a copyright policy within the school. Why would we want to do that? So that our school understands what is expected when it comes to copyright. This will give the students, teachers, and administrators a specific idea of what the law is and how it is to be upheld. It will also help to set standard consequences if the policy is broken. It should be made known to the school community so that each member understands the importance of copyright. Do any of your schools have a copyright policy in place? Does it work? Do people know about it? I would like to have feedback on what is happening in your schools.
Here is a link to several school's copyright policies:
