I find the 5 categories of skills, also included in the piece, to be of more practical value than simply understanding the 4 Cs, though the 4 Cs are the right starting point for conversations on how to structure materials, lessons, and physical space.

Online Tools and Resources That Support Academic Honesty

Online Tools and Resources That Support Academic Honesty | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it
Students have invented lots of ways to cheat and, with the growing use of technology in education, new cheating options appear on a regular basis.

Although it seems an overwhelming problem to address, there’s no need to despair. Do your due diligence–stop violations and cultivate honesty among students by also finding technology that works for you.

Check out the list of 10 edtech tools below that can help promote academic honesty while fitting nicely into daily routines and improving the quality of your educational efforts.

Some great resources listed here. I would argue, though, the best way to combat cheating is create engaging assessments that students want to do and learn from.

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it
Metacognition, simply put, is the process of thinking about thinking. It is important in every aspect of school and life, since it involves self-reflection on one’s current position, future goals, potential actions and strategies, and results. At its core, it is a basic survival strategy, and has been shown to be present even in rats.

Perhaps the most important reason for developing metacognition is that it can improve the application of knowledge, skills, and character qualities in realms beyond the immediate context in which they were learned. This can result in the transfer of competencies across disciplines—important for students preparing for real-life situations where clear-cut divisions of disciplines fall away and one must select competencies from the entire gamut of their experience to effectively apply them to the challenges at hand. Even within academic settings, it is valuable—and often necessary—to apply principles and methods across disciplinary lines.
