Formatting Requirements: APA formatting (though you may disregard the running head requirement) o If you need help with your APA formatting a great online reference is the Purdue Online Writing Lab https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01… o NOTE: If you use the citation function in resources like Google Scholar please be sure to check the results it provides you against proper formatting. Often times it will make an error in the capitalization rules for titles of works. 12 point font preferably Times New Roman Standard one inch margins Double-spaced Cover sheet with: o Your name o Class number/Instructor Name o Date Reference section at the end. Use about 10 -15 sources in all paper. o NOTE: Please be sure to differentiate between references and resources under separate headings as may be necessary A quick way to remember the difference is that references are works to which you refer to in the body of you manuscript in the form of directly quoted or summarized content coupled with either an in-text or parenthetical citation. Resources on the other hand are those materials that helped to provide you with a general understanding of a topic but from which you do not directly quote or summarize. Page length o 5-10 pages excluding the cover page and reference/resource sections o NOTE: If you are struggling with your writing please talk with me. Even if you aren’t struggling please don’t hesitate to share your ideas or writing with me. I’m always happy to review drafts and offer feedback. o NOTE2: Please do not feel that your paper has to be longer to be better. I’m the most interested in the quality of your reasoning and expression of ideas so a refined five page paper is better than a watered down or drawn out 10 page paper. Content Requirements: Abstract – A summary of no more than 100 words describing the contents focus and general conclusions of your paper. Body of your Manuscript o Introduction and Context Please describe your background and understanding of the Public Domain and related concepts such as Fair Use prior to taking this class. Then please consider how your knowledge and understanding of these concepts have changed since taking this class. Finally please describe your unique context and/or lenses that inform how you’re approaching this class and the concepts we’ve been covering. o Main Topic Please describe your main topic of interest in relation to the Public Domain and related concepts. For some of you this may involve discussing how what we’ve addressed can be leveraged in your unique contexts presently or in the future (e.g. a specific project you might undertake specific activities you’ll develop) while others will be discussing related concepts such as providing credit for work innovation concepts of ownership use of materials for instructional development or discussing differences in how your home country handles the Public Domain and related concepts such as Fair Use and specific uses like Mashups and Re-Mixes. This is the section where you will provide citations to works we’ve read in class (though you can certainly utilize them in other sections of your manuscript as well). You may also reference other materials you locate in your own explorations or are relevant from other parts of your professional or academic experiences (i.e. jobs other classes independent reading etc.). Think of this like having a conversation with me where you tell me which portions of the materials you’re basing your understanding on what concepts most resonated with you how that relates to your context area and what new kinds of connections you’re making. If I was tackling this as a student I would focus on two of my context areas of teacher preparation and technology integration. As part of that I would want to bring in some literature considerations from teacher education and technology integration. This might take the form of concept definitions a summary of how teachers use technology and some discussion of how pre-service teachers are prepared. I could then talk about how I might address some of these considerations through a project such as how in class I showed you the basic structure and some context examples of a public domain education resource site I’m slowly developing. I could then identify some links with the readings for considerations that may need be addressed when helping teachers or pre- service teachers to contribute their own lesson ideas to such a site or broader discussion points that may be important for users of such a site to consider. I could also discuss how free materials from the Public Domain could be used in poorer schools or as materials for encouraging the development of 21 st Century Skills by having students re-mix and redesign past works. Using any portion of my example above can you see how you might develop your own topic? o Future Explorations Possibilities and Growth Opportunities In this section please consider areas of future exploration or areas of growth that you may be able to achieve in relationship to the Public Domain and related concepts. In writing this section you may find that as you’ve worked through this portion of the seminar you’ve developed new questions or new lenses which to view our field or your own unique contexts. Similarly you may have new or different ideas about the dissemination of your own work. o Concluding Thoughts In this section you’ll be summarizing what you’ve addressed in your manuscript but I also want you to take this opportunity to be reflective. As we’ve worked through the seminar we’ve seen that concepts like what’s in the Public Domain and what constitutes Fair Use have changed over time. Similarly we’ve explored ways that we can play/work with different materials to either educate subvert express bring people together cause people to question or serve as a foundation for future work. Having read discussed and experienced these things what are your thoughts on all of this and how these topics might evolve in the future? NOTE: I’m not looking for a particular answer here so please don’t feel that I’m looking for a “right” answer. This is just an opportunity to look back over the proverbial ground that we’ve covered through unfamiliar territory on this little journey of ours together. ‘
