IP in Education materials

Protecting your own work and respecting the work of others plays an increasingly important role in the professional and private lives of all citizens in the 21st century.

Both teachers and children across the EU can now benefit from the guidance and tested materials included in Ideas Powered @ School, a valuable instrument to bring IP closer to the classroom and increase the creativity and innovation skills that are at the heart of European economic, cultural and social wealth.

Aimed at promoting entrepreneurial and innovation-oriented mindsets, the website features three practical teacher-training modules to inspire educators to include age-appropriate intellectual property principles and concepts in their lessons.

Organise an IP Awareness Day at your school!

Ideas Powered @School provides a structured outline on how to organise an IP Awareness Day for school children with appealing practical activities. These include playground games, logo-making sessions, an inventor’s corner or workshops led by inspiring speakers.

 

The web page also offers the first-ever resource database of IP-related educational materials from organisations from the EU and beyond, in all EU languages.

In today’s world, creativity and innovation are important in every walk of life. Completing this diary for 21 days promotes a creative habit and encourages students to carry out creative activities on a regular basis in order to foster a routine in which the students consciously record their creative work. This leads to students placing a value on their work while also learning about the importance of protecting their ideas with IP tools....Mazāk

IP and Education in Europe

One example is the study on the contribution to economic performance and employment of intellectual property rights intensive industries which was carried out jointly by OHIM, through the Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights, and the EPO. Another is the survey carried out on behalf of OHIM on the perception of European citizens with respect to intellectual property, which shows that a significant proportion of EU citizens are prepared to justify infringements of IP rights under certain circumstances. The gap between perceptions and the evidence about the importance of IP rights is particularly worrying when it comes to young people. One finding of the survey was that between 35% and 50% of young Europeans can display attitudes which favour counterfeiting or illegal downloading. Steps need to be taken to address this. Education would seem to be one of a number of ways of tackling the issue. It was for this reason that OHIM, through the Observatory, commissioned this mapping study on intellectual property education in school curricula in EU Member States to see how IP education is carried out and what could be done to improve it. IP education means the skills and competences that young people can be expected to acquire in the classroom that enable them to become familiar with intellectual property, understand its potential to generate income and economic growth and lead them to respect intellectual property rights, whether their own or those of others. The study suggests that the best approach to intellectual property education is to ensure that intellectual property skills and competences are, in the terms used by the study "transverse competences" or, more simply, competences that can be used across different subjects in a curriculum. It also gives examples of five learning areas selected from the eight key competencies chosen by the EU which define the main priorities for education in today´s modern economies and that provide opportunities to introduce IP in the curriculum. This approach, which seeks to embed IP skills and competences naturally into everyday education, looks attractive. Implementing it will not be easy. The study provides examples from the European Union and elsewhere from which suitable models can be adapted to fit in with the diverse nature of the educational systems in the 28 Member States. It notes interestingly that the most innovative non-EU countries/regions already teach IP at the primary level and place IP more commonly as a part of citizenship education (focusing on morals and ethics), whereas in the EU, IP is addressed in more specialised ICT related subjects and is being taught much later in the educational cycle. This raises the question of which educational path the EU should follow in the future – especially given the on-going discussion on the Digital Single Market, where one of the EC´s objectives is to boost digital skills and learning. The study also clearly indicates that copyright is by far most frequently mentioned in EU curricula, leaving other IP rights far behind. It shows that much more needs to be done to rebalance this. This study has been designed to assist educational policymakers in Member States to meet the challenge of the digital era. As a consequence of the findings, the Office is prepared to set up a specialised network of education experts and stakeholders to help them coordinate and develop appropriate, modern resources and programmes for pupils and teachers, based on the material acquired in the study. These would include for example videos, games, tutorials, e-learning portals and other online content, which could be disseminated through the schools with the aim of helping future generations understand the central role that IP plays in the economy and society....Mazāk

The campaign, developed in cooperation with ELLESSE Edu, which for this school year involves secondary schools of the regions of Lombardy, Piedmont, Abruzzo, Lazio, Marche and Sicily, allows interested public institutes to benefit from a free educational kit containing a number of materials and tools developed for them, including a guide for teachers, a poster, a multimedia DVD and questionnaires for the pupils. The initiative includes the participation of DGBIC ‐ Directorate General of Libraries and Cultural Institutes (Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Tourism), the support of DGSIP – Directorate General for Students, Integration and Participation (Education Ministry), and is also sponsored by AGCOM ‐ Communications Authority ‐ which has supported and shared the principles of the initiative that complies with the educational objectives set out in the Regulations on the "protection of copyright on electronic communication networks".
