The session that Robbie led was about Digital Citizenship. Going into the session, I felt like I was pretty savvy on the topic. He spoke about a situation where an administrator did what many of us, if not all of us, have done. He went to Google image search, found a picture he liked, right clicked on it, and saved it. He used that photo in his school newsletter that is also posted online. The photographer and owner of the photo saw this and sued the school corporation for using it without permission or paying for it.
This really opened my eyes that Digital Citizenship is not just for students. We as teachers and administrators need to be aware of the copyright laws and model good citizenship for our students. It will definitely change the way I search for and use photos in the future.
