    Copyright in the Classroom - David Sohn and Brittany Fleming

    When we talk about digital literacies, often the first thing that comes to mind is educating kids about privacy, security, and cyberbullying. Today's children may be large-scale consumers of online media, but they are also creators, publishers, distributors, and critics. The digital landscape is an environment rich with possibilities. Still, it also creates an immediate, practical need: Students have to know how to interact with creative work in ethical and legal ways. Copyright is becoming an essential element of digital literacy - because everyone is a publisher now. David Sohn is an attorney who has developed Copyright and Creativity - a free, open-source curriculum to help teachers navigate education on this topic. He's joined on this episode by teacher Brittany Fleming, who uses this curriculum in her classes. Thanks for listening!

    Teachers' Messages of Support for Beginning Teachers!

    Being a beginning teacher is challenging, and transitioning from a largely theory-based, academic understanding of education into a real-life, operational classroom with students with diverse needs, can be tricky. Throw in a pandemic, some remote learning, and physical isolation from your teaching friends and colleagues, and the challenge grows. But it's not bad news. Beginning teachers right now are developing resilience and flexibility which will hold them in good stead throughout their careers. We asked some teachers in the field: What's your best advice for beginning teachers? Listen to hear what they said! Have you subscribed to Teach Starter? Don't forget!

    Realities of Remote Teaching and Learning

    Hello and happy Friday teachers! What a week that was! We've had schools in Victoria and South Australia come out of lockdown, while teachers in New South Wales learned that they will be teaching remotely for some time still. So many of us have been through this before and it never gets easy, but teaching is a big and inclusive and supportive community and we are here for each other. In this week's teacher voicemail, we asked for some messages of support, and Lisa from Redpoppy's Class has shared some of her own experiences. Take a listen. Welcome to Teacher Voicemail, our newest mini-episode coming to you every Friday! If you've got something to share, DM us on Instagram and send a voice recording (just tap the little microphone icon to start).  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
