Reminder: Free copyright tweetchat tomorrow

K12copylaw ImageDo you find it even more difficult to understand copyright now that everything has gone digital? With the advancement of digital technologies, how has teaching changed? Can students use YouTube for classroom purposes? What about remixing — is it illegal? If you are a school librarian or educator who is confused by copyright law, you’re not alone.

On January 7, 2014, from 6:00-7:00p.m. EST, school leaders will have the opportunity to have their questions answered during an interactive tweetchat with copyright expert and bestselling author Carrie Russell. Participants can submit questions and take part in the tweetchat by using the #k12copylaw hashtag.

Tweetchat participants will learn about fair use, licensing, and how to find reliable copyright information from Russell, who is the author of Complete Copyright for K—12 Librarians and Educators. To receive a 10% discount on Complete Copyright (20% for ALA members), use the coupon code CC2014 before January 15, 2014.

The interactive social media event will be hosted jointly by AASA: The School Superintendents Association, the American Library Association, the National Association of Elementary School Principals and the National Association of Secondary School Principals.

Participate in the tweetchat by using #k12copylaw on January 7, 2014, from 6:00-7:00p.m. EST.
