Abstract

In today's world it is quite common to see old ideas repackaged and presented to consumers in sleek new containers. This repackaging also occurs in the educational realm. For example, the violence seen in schools has prompted the call for character education, media literacy, and conflict resolution training. Many of these instructional programs, although possibly called by a different name, have been in the curriculum of schools for years. Regardless of the fact that these programs have been operational in some schools for extended periods of time, recent violence in schools dictate that the effectiveness of these programs must be questioned. This need to reflect upon the effectiveness of existing practices reached our own teaching experiences in similar ways. Fortunately, we were not exposed to violence at our educational institutions but the need for reflection and re-evaluation was still needed. The issue: Copyright and Computer Ethics.
