Let's stick to calling graphic novels a format, not a genre. Varied use of the latter only causes confusion.

My favourite part where it refers to the issue of plagiarism: 

"The enduring response to this issue is to set aside technology as the culprit and to focus on the importance of digital citizenship."

This is the kernel of the problem (and many others) in digital land. If students are educated to be responsible digital citizens from an early age, plagiarism SHOULD be less of a problem.

Wayne Lang's curator insight, April 29, 2013 11:24 PM

Students of 1251EDN, are you interested in changing/enhancing your view of teaching and learning in this digital age? Think about the systemic support that already exists for teachers to utilise many of the digital age facets.

The Innovative Educator: I hate school, but I love learning.

The Innovative Educator: I hate school, but I love learning. | Digital Learning | Scoop.it

"That is what high school student and author of the book One Size Does Not Fit All, Nikhil Goyal, recently posted on his Facebook timeline. What followed were 99 comments. Many from peers deeply invested in and trained by the system to believe you need school to get an education. They represent those who have accepted and/or know nothing else but this new and narrow system that our corporate reformers and politicians have created for us.

 

But the reality is not so bleak. Nikhil is not the only one who feels this way. A growing number of young people have awoken to the fact that you don't need to go to school to get an education and, sadly, sometimes school actually gets in the way of learning."
