Congratulations to Kami Cottrell on winning the educator scholarship trip to ISTE!
This year, iKeepSafe opened a 60-second video competition for educators across the nation to share how they have been using the Copyright and Creativity for Digital Citizens curriculum to inspire students to understand their rights and responsibilities as creators while also understanding the value of respecting the rights of other creators. After careful review of the impressive submissions, Kami Cottrell was selected as this year’s winner. As the winner, she will receive free registration, travel, and four nights hotel to attend the 2016 ISTE conference in Denver, CO.
Kami is an educator at Flora Vista Elementary School, located in Encinitas California. Students at Flora Vista Elementary School have access to the internet via use of their one-on-one iPad program. Kami uses the Copyright and Creativity for Digital Citizens curriculum to stimulate her students to evaluate the creative process, an area that she believes is essential to information literacy. She encourages her students to participate in classroom discussions regarding copyright policies and also brings them hands-on learning by using the tools and quick references provided by iKeepSafe. Her submission is an excellent example of how the Copyright and Creativity for Digital Citizens curriculum is being utilized in the classroom.
We would like to thank all of the educators in this round of submissions and encourage them to continue teaching their students about the application of creativity and copyright in the digital world. You can view each of the submissions by following #iKeepSafeISTE2016 in Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
