Fair Use Pt. 1: Copyright Law and Best Practices for School Media Specialists/Youth Services Staff (SEFLIN)

The two-part Fair Use of Copyright Materials webinar series is geared toward school media specialists and youth services staff in public libraries.

In the past few years, educational fair use guidelines have undergone major revisions expanding opportunities for teachers and students to use copyrighted materials. Common Core Standards specify digital media use and publication, implying fair use will be a common topic in all ethical classrooms. This webinar will overview copyright concepts such as public domain and will detail five Best Practices for digital media use.

This 60-minute webinar will be delivered via Adobe Connect. Log-in information will be emailed approximately one week before the course.

Presented by: Michelle Cates
Michelle’s school library programs strive to invigorate research and literature through digital technology, games, acting, and excitement… an engaging dynamic derived from sixteen years’ experience, a master’s degree in Curriculum & Instruction, as well as master’s in Library Science.

With Common Core, our library profession is changing; these new standards epitomize the programming we librarians have advocated for years, providing an exciting opportunity for leadership and patron services unparalleled in our careers.

National Board Certified, twice-winner of the Florida Power-Library School Award and recipient of the 21st Century Library Media Specialist certification, Michelle presents webinars and workshops for librarians through which we will define our role in Common Core and the future of education.

Staff from Florida libraries may register for this workshop at no charge. Priority will be given to SEFLIN members. Non-members will be placed on a waiting list and added as space permits after the registration deadline.
