Week 1 & 2 Recommended Readings
Every week we'll suggest readings to help with that week's tasks. We understand that you may be pressed for time - the readings are only there to help and guide you. Read as little or as much as you like/can/need in order to answer the tasks as well as learn the material. The readings should substantially decrease the time that you have to spend on the tasks. We suggest checking out the recommended links to the smartcopying site and the powerpoint presentations first.
****Update: the Smartcopying website is in the process of being redeveloped. At times it will be very slow or inaccessible. As such we have uploaded the relevant documents from the Smartcopying website for Week 1 & 2 HERE.
This website is a practical resource on copyright for Australian educators. It's a great site to use as a resource any time you have copyright questions, and it will be very useful throughout these case scenarios: www.smartcopying.edu.au

National Copyright Unit’s Slideshare
This website contains past powerpoint presentations the National Copyright Unit has given regarding copyright in the classroom. These powerpoints will be a very useful resource when attempting to find information and answers to the case scenarios. A good powerpoint to start with is the presentation from the "Primary Principals Day":
