The code of best practices for fair use in media literacy education

Tagged: , , , ,

Since September of 2007 we have been contributing to the development of The Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Media Literacy Education (PDF released November 11, 2008), a coordinated effort by the media literacy community, supported by experts at American University and The Media Education Lab at Temple University to simplify the legalities of using copyrighted materials in an academic setting.

Our most substantial contribution to the effort has been Media Literacy through Production-based Media Education, a video we produced to help frame the issues surrounding fair use in the context of elementary school video production.
