Never before have educators, copyright experts, and open information advocates worked together to teach kids Copyright & Creativity for Ethical Digital Citizens™. The lesson plans, videos, activities, and handouts are designed to inspire creativity and help students make conscious choices about sharing their own creative work while understanding the value of respecting the rights of other creators. The form below will take you to the new Middle School Curriculum (7 – 9), released October 21, 2015.

The project was sponsored in part by a generous grant from the Center for Copyright Information. Click here to review the curriculum without providing your information.


iKeepSafe applied a rigorous development process to ensure an accurate, age-appropriate curriculum on copyright and fair use that will be easy to implement and enrich existing class lesson plans and projects.
