    The “30-second rule” of using copyrighted music is not a legally valid justification to use music that is not licensed for reuse. Students can either go through the process of presenting a case for fair use for copyrighted music (refer to our Boundaries page for resources) or - easier yet - select music that is licensed for reuse through Creative Commons (see our Music section).
    EDpuzzleCreative Commons + EDpuzzle PSA Challenge
    Students in Jim Bentley's 5th grade classroom decided to create CC Licenses Explained, a recap video on information presented in their 2016 Challenge entry, Copyright & Creative Commons. On behalf of Jim and his students, we are issuing a new challenge to students and/or teachers around the world: Use EdPuzzle to feature the video (CC Licenses Explained) and create stopping points to help viewers assess their understanding of Creative Commons licenses and reflect on the implications for their own digital creations. To step up to Digital ID EDpuzzle Challenge, follow the steps below:
    Step 1: Listen to this year's winning entry for elementary schools: Copyright & Creative Commons
    Step 2: Listen to the recap video of the the above PSA: CC Licenses Explained
    Step 3: Upload CC Licenses Explained into EDpuzzle and create a companion piece, with stopping points to help viewers assess for understanding and reflect on implications for their own creative works.
    Step 4: Send us the link to your EdPuzzle video by April 1,2017. We'll have a link posted soon to an online submission form.

    As upstanding “Citizens," we need to participate positively in our physical communities - our schools, neighborhoods, cities, states, countries and the world. Likewise, as exemplary “Digital Citizens," we must learn how to participate positively in a variety of digital/cyber/online communities. It is only by developing a clear sense of both our rights and our responsibilities that we can become fully engaged, contributing "Citizens" of all the communities in which we find ourselves. ~ Natalie Bernasconi & Gail Desler
    For our purposes, we define digital |ˈdijitl| (adjective) as of,relating to, or characteristic of electronic information and media,including computers, the Internet, and cellular networks and other mobile technologies.
