This week we continued a conversation that began on Twitter when Alec Couros went to his daughter's Back to School Night. Along with Will Richardson, Lee Kolbert, and Angela Maiers, we discussed the issues we face as parents when walking into our own children's classrooms. Alec could not join us but was with us in spirit....we hope.
This week, Lisa, Sheila, and Maria were joined by Kristin Hokanson in the chatroom and Alec Couros in the skype call to discuss copyright and fair use, copyleft and cc licensing, and the ethics surrounding it all.
