showing videos to large groups
- April 23, 2010 @ 8:33amcowgirl says:Okay....here is the issue: Because of state testing that requires the use of all computers in our high school, all computer classes are combined in a gym and then shown popular movies(with some tangential relation to the computer world) that are rented by the instructors or owned by the library There are is no other place to house these students. This takes place for a 2 week period. The classes do not have the same curriculum but are all computer bases. I think this is in violation of the copyright law, but others contend that since we do have a movie licensing agreement that if the movie is on licensing company's llist, this practice is okay.

It would help if there were lesson plans following up on the movies and using them to discuss issues about computers, the development of technology, or the use of technology in creating the special effects. That way they would fall under the classroom rules a little more neatly.
