Creative Commons School

cc.large

 

Staff supported an initiative for WEGC to adopt creative commons policies. A paper now has to go to the BoT for agreement. This decision is a “no brainer” in my view. In essence this will legitimize a common practice of teachers either sharing resources or taking copies of “their” resources with them if they switch schools. This policy is required as the Board of Trustees own the IP on these resources – unless of course they have been purchased.

I may ask students with parent permission if the assessments can be used as exemplars under a CC licence. I wonder if the CC licences will be extended to other areas of the school such as internal policies and procedures documents and computer applications.
