Microsoft is helping students understand the value of online creative content in a way that’s meaningful and relevant to them. “Digital Citizenship and Creative Content curriculum includes host of resources for teachers including lesson plans, suggested activities, downloadable materials and tests they can administer to students. The program emphasizes experiential learning — participation rather than memorization — and uses real-life examples of creative content typically encountered by young people on Internet, including music, videos, software, games and images. In one activity, students create their own digital property in the form of a ring tone, which they can post on a sharing site Microsoft created for the purpose (MyBytes.com). In another, students stage a mock trial of a copyright infringement case,” notes Microsoft.
