A How-To Guide for Using the Social Thinking Trademark and our Materials
We’ve had many people ask us to explain the parameters of using the term “Social Thinking” as well as the related lessons, vocabulary, characters, etc. Others have notified us that they thought people were misusing the term Social Thinking or the work itself. It’s good to know we have a loyal community!
The evolution of the work related to Social Thinking continues, but as the term and the related treatments have become more popular we realized we needed to better define its use within the community.
As a result, we have created some guidelines that protect the Social Thinking name, ensure that our work is being used consistent with its purpose, and make sure that the origins of our work can be traced back to us. The following information is provided to define what we encourage and discourage to meet those goals.
Below you will find two downloadable PDF documents, which outline how to give proper attribution to Social Thinking’s work. The first document breaks down the legalities of proper attribution to the Social Thinking trademark and work, while the second document lists the Do’s and Don’ts for your quick reference. It is important to read both documents, as the “Trademark and Attribution” document supports and expands upon the “Do’s and Don’ts” listed below.
