The Digital Citizenship and Creative Content program is designed to help teachers address student issues surrounding the ethical use of digital content, from music downloads to text and images. Lessons in the program deal with both "what" and "why," that is, what files or parts of files can legally be downloaded or used, and for what purposes, and why respect for creative content is important. The lessons also encourage students to protect their own creative work. Free registration is required for the site, but all materials in the four lessons are then downloadable.
