    Digital tools have enabled us to quickly find and use information from a variety of sources, but what about copyright? Many students are unaware of the restrictions on material and information they find through digital resources, and do not respect the rights of the owners. This session will take you through some of the research tools that are integrated directly into Google Apps for Education, and show you what goes on behind the scenes when you look for unrestricted content. Learn how to identify content that is free to use or share, how to quickly and easily include it into any Google App, and how to properly cite the source, all from within Google Apps for Education! Students will no longer need to use complicated resources for finding and citing appropriately when creating content. The session will conclude with a glimpse at how you and your students can license your own content to allow others to benefit from the work you’ve done.

Program Highlights:

  • What copyright means in the digital age

  • How to respect the rights of content owners, and still find and use useful information.

  • Getting familiar with the research tool that is built into Google Apps for Education.

  • How you can protect your rights as a content owner, yet still allow others to use what you’ve created.
