Abstract

Copyright, Fair Use, and pedagogical best practices are challenging classroom aspects for even the most seasoned of instructors. For the Student Teacher, these topics represent potentially overwhelming elements for which they are responsible, yet often ill prepared. Copyright and Fair Use in lesson plan development and supplemental material options are not often discussed in School of Education curricula.

Student Teachers are dependent upon their in-service, cooperating teachers to “show them the ropes” in the classroom. In Wingate University’s School of Education, a Librarian equips Student Teachers with appropriate background regarding the rules associated with copyright, the understanding of Fair Use as a legal defense rather than educational permission, and provides numerous tools to complement and supplement their lesson plans with materials available for classroom use and application during their semester in the elementary/secondary classroom and after graduation.

Learn how one Librarian tackles the elements of Copyright, Fair Use, and various aspects of Intellectual Property (especially in the realm of the Digital Age) with Student Teachers to ensure they are equipped to apply the basic tenants of Information Literacy in lesson plan design. The use of Social Media, as a professional development tool, is an integral aspect of this presentation.
