Abstract

This chapter presents a case study of research conducted in the state of Wisconsin, USA, on the awareness of and knowledge surrounding ethical and legal uses of technology by primary teachers, administrators, and technology coordinators. The authors use the term responsible technologies to define the concept of ethical and legal awareness; the chapter reports on the findings from the pre- and post-in-service surveys, and makes recommendations for greater awareness of the ethical and legal implications surrounding technology use in general, and surrounding copyright in particular.
