Weekly post #8 – Soundtrap and ‘should we be showing Netflix in school?’

Three things to check out

Should we be showing Netflix in school?

No… unless…

We work with ProLitteris to be able to work with copyrighted materials in school – such as the playing of DVDs etc.

ProLitteris has advised us that although the viewing of Netflix documentations in the classroom in Switzerland is permitted under copyright law (any use of a work by a teacher and his class for educational purposes being allowed by copyright law), we should be aware that such a use might violate the Netflix Terms of Use.

Some Netflix Original educational documentaries are available for one-time educational screenings. To find out which titles are available for educational screenings, go to the “Only On Netflix” section of media.netflix.com. From there, navigate to “All Alphabetical”. Titles that are available for educational screening will display the a certain ‘grant of permission on their details page’ the wording of which can be found here.

For example – The Social Dilemma does not show that ‘grant of permission’.
