Video Case Studies: Fair Use in Media Literacy Education

At the Media Education Lab website, you can view three videos to watch how the Code of Best Practices for Fair Use in Media Literacy Education applies in three different educational contexts. Each has discussion questions to promote critical thinking and communication skills in reasoning about how fair use applies to media literacy education in K-12 and university settings.
  • Elementary school students at P.S. 124 in Brooklyn use copyrighted images and music in their public service announcements.
  • High School students at Upper Merion Area HS in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, use images from in their virtual zoo.
  • Higher Ed Curriculum developers at Project Look Sharp at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York use images from Newsweek magazine in their media literacy curricula that helps students analyze the representation of conflict and war in the news media.


Test your reasoning skills by examining these scenarios. How are these scenarios like your use?
