OPEN EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES: REFLECTIONS UPON THE PRESENT POSSIBILITIES IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEACHING THROUGH THE INFLEXIBILITY OF COPYRIGHT LAW 9,610

Sílvia Monica Moura Lima, Beatriz Gama Rodrigues

Abstract


New Technologies have allowed an informational revolution and different possibilities of interaction such as research papers, movies, songs, pictures and others. Collaborations and remixes are terms that designate relevant new practices in the use of the networking environment, but these comprise, in most cases, the infringement of the rights of authorship. And what should we state regarding the teaching-learning process mediated by technological and media innovations? This article aims at reflecting uponthe use of digital technologies in education, the use of open resources as a way to reeducate our attitudes through the existing copyright. We base this article on: Kenski (2003); Lemos (2005); Brazil (1998); among others. In our reflections, we agree that the Law 9,610 is broken. In fact, it is an outdated law because it barely reflects the contemporary usage we make of online information. An alternative would be the use of open educational resources and the use of flexible licenses, such as, Creative Commons, but there are few educational professionals who know these legal possibilities.
