Managing Digital Resources

Managing Digital Resources

Competent Digital Educators organise digital content and make it available to learners, parents and other educators. They effectively protect sensitive digital content. They respect and correctly apply privacy and copyright rules. They understand the use and creation of open licenses and open educational resources, including their proper attribution.

Typical activities

  • They share resources using links or as attachments, e.g. to e-mails.
  • They share resources on online platforms or personal or organisational websites/blogs.
  • They share one’s own repositories of resources with others, managing their access and rights as appropriate.
  • They respect possible copyright restrictions to using, re-using and modifying digital resources.
  • They appropriately reference sources when sharing or publishing resources subject to copyright.
  • They attribute (open) licenses to self-created resources.
  • They take measures to protect sensitive data and resources (e.g. students’ grades, exams).
  • They share administrative and student-related data with colleagues, students and parents, as appropriate.
  • When mastering this competence by doing the work in the lab, you should be able to say:

  • I share educational content via e-mail attachments or through links.
  • I am aware that some resources distributed on the Internet are copyrighted. share educational content on virtual learning environments or by uploading, linking or embedding it e.g. on a course website or blog.
  • I effectively protect sensitive content, e.g. exams, student reports.
  • I understand the copyright rules that apply to the digital resources I use for school purposes (images, text, audio and film).
  • I share resources embedding them into digital environments.
  • I effectively protect personal and sensitive data and restrict access to resources as appropriate.
  • I correctly reference resources affected by copyright.

    In the lab we will also:

  • Learn to compile comprehensive digital content repositories and make them available to learners or other educators.
  • Learn to apply licenses to the resources we publish online.
  • Learn to annotate the resources we digitally share and enable others to comment, rate, modify, re-arrange or add to them.
