Creative Content Australia's Education Program
Nothing beats the real thing! is designed to inform, engage and raise awareness about copyright.
Nothing beats the real thing! is a free online education resource for primary and secondary teachers, featuring a number of programs with clear curriculum links, structured activities and assessment suggestions to help students understand more about screen copyright, its role and the value it contributes to our society.
Understanding the role of copyright and screen content infringement are real issues that face students on a daily basis.
Most students have pirated digital material or know others who have. They may choose to pirate or not… the choice is theirs. But they also need to understand the legal, economic and social implications of their choices. That’s what these education resources do – they provide classroom ready materials that encourage thought and discussion.
Written by experienced teachers and tested in the classroom, these resources:
- Provide cross-curricula links in subjects ranging from HSIE, English, History, Geography and Economics to SOSE/Civics and Citizenship, Religion/Values Education, Legal Studies & Media Studies.
- Can be accessed via a range of platforms by teachers and students using their preferred device
- Include clear instructions and suggested time frames for classroom use
- Feature differentiated tasks and assessments to monitor students’ progress
