Raising awareness is important, because copyright rules for educators have changed significantly in recent years. While teachers have new opportunities to use copyright-protected materials in their lessons, they also have responsibilities, as there are limits to what can be copied and communicated in the classroom.  The Copyright Decision Tool was created by the Copyright Consortium of the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada (CMEC) and can be found at www.copyrightdecisiontool.ca.   https://bes.crps.ca/view.php?action=object&id=4529&stream=CRPS News https://bes.crps.ca/view.php?action=object&id=4529&stream=CRPS News Instructional Excellence and Professional Learning http://crps.ca/Professional%20Learning.php https://bes.crps.ca/view.php?action=object&id=4093&stream=CRPS News https://bes.crps.ca/view.php?action=object&id=4093&stream=CRPS News
