Digital Copyright Slider
Let’s face it- copyright is confusing, boring to teach and learn, and a downright thorn in our sides! Here to make it a little easier to understand and just slightly more interactive is the digital copyright slider. It’s flash-based so it will not work on iOS devices. Yes, Apple, Flash is still alive and well. Sorry for the digression.
This reminds me of the old Easy-Graders. Admit it- every one of you teachers reading this have one, don’t you. On this one, you move the slider to match the date of first publication of the work then it will show you the copyright status and if permission is needed to use it. What may not be obvious is the ability to click on the asterisks for more information!
