Meetup: Creative Commons in Schools

Date: 11/04/2012 - 11/04/2012

Join us to for a lunchtime Meetup about Creative Commons for kiwi students and teachers. We have some practical tips for finding and reusing great CC content in the classroom. Show off your new digital literacy and copyright skills and share them with kids or colleagues!

WHEN: Wednesday, April 11, midday.

Come a few minutes early if you would like to order lunch or coffee from the bar.

What is Creative Commons about?

Learning in the 21st century involves digital sharing and remixing - and sometimes in public online places. Students and teachers can safely use videos, images, text and music without infringing copyright when they use CC licensed content. As well as thinking about what teachers and students can 'use', schools are thinking about whether they can share their own resources for others to use and benefit from too.
Whether you're a teacher, parent, service provider or interested community member, we'd love for you to come along tell us about your own views and experiences too.

NZTA Remix / News / News and Events / home

The New Zealand Transport Agency has launched a competition for Year 9 - 13 secondary students and NZ schools to use creative remix or data mashup as a way to explore the theme of road safety. Students and teachers need to be sure that a creator is happy for their work to be used, and if so, they need to think about the conditions under which they may be allowed to use it.
