Remixing 101

Lawrence Lessig thinks remix techniques should be taught in school:

Kids learn how to write "creative writing" essays, quoting from a range of sources to make their point. They should learn how to make remixed videos, quoting and integrating the work of others to make their point. As with good writing, good remixing is hard. As with writing, there are important rules and norms the creator must learn. But as with writing, this is a form of expression that should be spread broadly in our culture — especially because most kids spend so much of their time watching rather than reading.
