I think sometimes, the real drive has to come not from the teachers, but
from the people who set the policy and care about teachers.
The Smartcopying project in Australia (http://www.smartcopying.edu.au/) has
been developed by the National Copyright Unit, which is embedded in the
Department of Education and has a federal mandate.  They work with teachers
and school librarians to teach them about copyright and open access.
