I enjoyed the lead off video of various speakers (students and teachers?) explaining plagiarism in their own words. 


As always, citation is the solution.

Lots of steps to go through before using that copyrighted material. Maybe if the students had to look at this each time, they would just take your word for it and use Creative Commons licensed images to begin with!

Yes, the "Jungle Book" that you grew up on.

Writing professors question plagiarism detection software | Inside Higher Ed

Writing professors question plagiarism detection software | Inside Higher Ed | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

Software to detect student plagiarism is faced with renewed criticism from the faculty members who may confront more plagiarism than do most of their colleagues – college writing professors.

Members of the Conference on College Composition and Communication passed a resolution at their annual convention last month to denounce plagiarism detection services, including products like Turnitin.

 

"...

Anson also complained about Turnitin’s practice of building its database by including submitted student papers. The company says it has “300+ million archived student papers” to aid its plagiarism detection efforts. The practice has been the subject of unsuccessful litigation against the company.

“Talk about taking work without attribution – they are taking students’ work without compensation. So it’s a strange, underhanded violation of intellectual property rights on behalf of students,” Anson said."

I am very aware of the fact that I am using a digital curation site to highlight external resources about images and Copyright and therefore it seems sensible to highlight some of the pitfalls of this approach.  I note that the Scoop.it example does not come out of this too well!

K-12 Copyright Guide Released

K-12 Copyright Guide Released | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it
A devoted book lover, Catherine A. Cardno of Education Week’s Commentary staff, writes about new releases in the K-12 education-publishing arena and interviews authors. Educators and policy experts round out the blog with their periodic book reviews.


As we all know, copyright issues can been incredibly tricky to figure out—particularly since social media has made it so easy for everyone to publically share material online. The issue of copyright becomes even more complex when you consider all the material that moves through a K-12 classroom, especially when student-research projects are involved. The American Library Association, or ALA, has today released a new copyright reference book created specifically for K-12 educators and libraries.

ABSTRACT

 

Today’s youth inhabit new digital spaces that seem foreign to many adults. These spaces offer unprecedented opportunities for interpersonal connection, but community can break down when people are emboldened by anonymity through pathways that are fast and highly public. Interested in how teens and adults view these ethically charged issues, our partner organizations convened a three-week long series of online conversations with more than 150 parents, teachers, and teens.

 

Our analysis of these conversations revealed that adults exhibited stronger and more consistent patterns of moral and ethical thinking than youth, who tended to show greater concern for the personal consequences of their online actions. These findings suggest that adults have an important role to play in helping teens to become responsible digital citizens.
