Q. Doesn’t the fact that we’re in education give us more leeway in using things that have a copyright?
Yes, but the fair use guidelines must still be followed. Educational use is only one of four factors to be considered. (Outside of the non-profit face-to-face classroom environment, the Classroom Use Exemption doesn't apply, so non-classroom use of audio and video such as in online instruction, at conferences, in school meetings, etc. - may be allowed, but you have to think about it through the lens of Fair Use.)
