Resources and Guidelines for ITC
The Instructional Technology Center (ITC) is located inside the Media Center. It will be staffed from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each school day.
EQUIPMENT AVAILABLE FOR CHECKOUT:
tape recorders/players, carts with laptops, slide projectors, VCRs, opaque projectors, screens, camcorders, and digital cameras.
VIDEO EQUIPMENT & PRODUCTION
Camcorders and video editors are available for teacher and student use. The ITC encourages student production as an excellent means of communication and assessment.

The purpose of the following guidelines is to state the minimum and not the maximum standards of educational fair use under Section 107 of H.R. 2223. Conditions determining the extent of permissible copying for educational purposes may change in the future; that certain types of copying permitted under these guidelines may not be permissible in the future; and conversely that in the future other types of copying not permitted under these guidelines may be permissible under revised guidelines. The following statement of guidelines is not intended to limit the types of copying permitted under the standards of fair use under judicial decision and which are stated in Section 107 of the Copyright Revision Bill. There may be instances in which copying which does not fall within the guidelines stated below may nonetheless be permitted under the criteria of fair use.

A single copy may be made of any of the following by or for teachers at their individual request for their scholarly research or use in teaching or preparation to teach a class:
1. a chapter from a book;
2. an article from a periodical or newspaper;
3. a short story, short essay or short poem, whether or not from a collective work; a chart, graph, diagram, drawing, cartoon or picture from a book, periodical, or newspaper.
B. Multiple Copies for Classroom Use
Multiple copies (not to exceed in any event more than one copy per pupil in a course) may be made by or for the teacher giving the course for classroom use or discussion provided:
1. the copying meets the test of brevity and spontaneity as defined below; and,
2. meets the cumulative effect test as defined below; and,
3. each copy includes a notice of copyright.
C. Prohibitions as to A and B
Notwithstanding any of the preceding information, the following shall be prohibited:
1. Copying shall not be used to create or to replace or substitute for anthologies, compilations or collective works. Such replacement or substitution may occur whether copies of various works or excerpts therefrom are accumulated or reproduced and used separately.
2. There shall be no copying of or from works intended to be "consumable" in the course of study or of teaching. These include workbooks, exercises, standardized tests and test booklets and answer sheets and like consumable material.
3. Copying shall not:
(a) substitute for the purchase of books, publishers' reprints or periodicals;

Paragraph "ii" above notwithstanding such "special works" may not be reproduced in their entirety; however, an excerpt comprising not more than two of the published pages of such special work and containing not more than 10% of the words found in the text thereof, may be reproduced.
(i) The copying is at the instance and inspiration of the individual teacher, and

(i) The copying of the material is for only one course in the school in which copies are made.
(ii) Not more than one short poem, article, story, essay or two excerpts may be copied from the same author, nor more than three from the same collective work or periodical volume during one class term.
(iii)There shall not be more than nine instances of such multiple copying for one course during one class term. (The limitations stated in "ii" and "iii" above

INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY CENTER
Displays and performances of audiovisual works are prohibited in nonprofit education institutions when:

B. They are transmitted by radio or television (either closed or open circuit) from an outside location.
C. They are shown in an auditorium or stadium before an audience not confined to students, such as a sporting event, graduation ceremony, or community lecture or art series.
D. They involve an illegally acquired or duplicated copy of the work.
E. Teachers may bring video tapes, rented from a video store or the public library, provided they present a copy of their lesson plan showing that the tape is being used under the rules of fair use. Mrs. Youngman can provide information on fair use as it applies to multimedia production (both video and computer generated).
Guidelines for taping commercial broadcasts. Limitations include:
A. Videotaped recordings may be kept for no more than 45 calendar days after the recording date, at which time the tapes must be erased.
B. Videotaped recordings may be shown to students only within the first 10 school days of the 45-day retention period.
C. Off-air recordings must be made only at the request of an individual teacher for instructional purposes, not by school staff in anticipation of later requests by teachers.
D. The recordings are to be shown to students no more than two times during the 10-day period, and the second time only for necessary instructional reinforcement.
E. The taped recordings may be viewed after the 10-day period only by teachers for evaluation purposes, that is, to determine whether to include the broadcast program in the curriculum in the future.
F. If several teachers request videotaping of the same program, duplicated copies are permitted to supply their request; all copies are subject to the same restrictions as the original recording.
G. The off-air recordings may not be physically or electronically altered or combined with others to form anthologies, but they need not necessarily be used or shown in their entirety.
H. All copies of off-air recordings must include the copyright notice on the broadcast program as recorded.
I. These guidelines apply only to nonprofit education institutions, which are further "expected to establish appropriate control procedures to maintain the integrity of these guidelines.''
