Instead of focusing our concerns on technology as an aid to plagiarizers, we should focus on its ability to foster creativity and collaboration, says Jen Carey.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 1, 2014 3:10 PM

As teachers we know how easy it is for students to plagiarize today. We are asked to have students work collaboratively and use tools where students may see others thoughts. How to we deal with these issues, the need for collaboration and using tools which promote this and the issue of students plagiarizing? And when it comes to assessment how do we ask students to collaborate yet also demand that they not plagiarize?

This post explores these issues and discusses how to "transform cheating into collaboration"?  There is also a question that each of us might ask ourselves (and I suspect many of us have): If you can Google an answer is it a good question for an assessment?

35 Psychological Tricks To Help You Learn Better - InformED | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

Have you ever considered letting your students listen to hardcore punk while they take their mid-term exam? Decided to do away with Power Point presentations during your lectures? Urged your students to memorize more in order to remember more? If the answer is no, you may want to rethink your notions of psychology and its place in the learning environment.

At first, I figured that the results of this study would be pretty obvious. First world countries with large populations and higher birth rates would be at the top of the list.

What do you think? Do you believe the results are obvious? If so, you may be surprised. Learn about the "digital natives" in the following areas:

* Who they are

* The top ten countries by percentage

* The young and connected

* Future trends

This infographic could be used to begin a discussion with students by asking what they think? What is the age range for a digital native? Which countries have the most digital natives? What does it mean to be young and connected? What do they think the future holds?

What do you know about digital natives?

Maria Zappa Kasapidi's curator insight, August 24, 2013 1:28 AM

Η γνωση προέρχεται από ερωτήσεις και τις απαντήσεις που θα δώσουμε σ' αυτές. Τα ανήσυχα πνεύματα ψάχνουν πέρα από τα συνηθισμένα και κάτω από την επιφάνεια.

Για να δημιουργήσουμε όμως τέτοιους μαθητές σαν εκπαιδευτικοί ή εκπαιδευτές πρέπει να δουλέψουμε πολύ και να προετοιμάσουμε το κατάλληλο περιβάλλον.
Βάλτε το στα πλάνα σας για τη σχολική χρονιά που ξεκινά. Μάθετε τους μαθητές σας ή τους εκπαιδευόμενους σας να κάνουν διαφορετικών ειδών ερωτήσεις ανάλογα με την περίσταση.
