Turnitin has released a report that details the "plagiarism spectrum" and also provides examples of each. This post links to an infographic that provides the 10 types of "unoriginal work" (with examples), the frequency of each type of work, how problamatic each is, and then lists them from the highest to the lowest based in the scores (frequency and problematic) as well as including the original work and the work submitted. 

Students often struggle with understanding what plagiarism is. This infographic provides a great tool to use with your students to help them identify how easy it is to plagiarize. We then need to teach them what they need to do!

Paula King, Ph.D.'s curator insight, July 18, 2013 10:33 PM

Good for coaching learners on what not to do.

Sherry Weaver's curator insight, July 22, 2013 6:04 PM

Plagiarism is often difficult for students to understand beyond the 'Cloning' stage.  This infographic may help demonstrate the slippery slope.

Digital Berkeley: Making Open Educational Resources | Townsend Humanities Lab | K12, HE, NGOs, Non-Profits: INFORMATION LITERACY | Scoop.it

Inspired by projects in the Open Education movement such as the University of Michigan’s Open.Michigan, MIT’s OpenCourseWare and Berkeley’s Webcast program, Digital Berkeley seeks to connect students directly to the creation and dissemination of Berkeley course materials. The point of Digital Berkeley is to have students take materials from a Berkeley class, consult the professor(s)/lecturer(s)/facilitator(s) and turn those materials into legal, digital, accessible, usable, Open Educational Resources (OER).

Plagiarism and the link: How the web makes attribution easier -- and more complicated

Plagiarism and the link: How the web makes attribution easier -- and more complicated | K12, HE, NGOs, Non-Profits: INFORMATION LITERACY | Scoop.it
The controversy over writer Nate Thayer’s failure to credit his sources, which some alleged amounted to plagiarism, is just part of an ongoing debate over how we use — and give credit for — information in a digital age.

 

The problem is that while adding hyperlinks is a great way of avoiding a charge of plagiarism — something that might have helped Fox News opinion writer Juan Williams and other alleged plagiarists — there is no accepted protocol for how or where to add those links, or how much content someone can cut and paste into their story or blog post without crossing the line from borrowing into plagiarism or copyright infringement.

As a hyperlink embedder, this is a timely post for introspection! Everyone should stop, read, and contemplate whether they are remaining true to the source. I'd like to think I have been, but it's time to reflect and inspect!
Paige Jaeger 's curator insight, April 11, 2013 8:34 AM

As a hyperlink embedder, I would like to think I have remained true to the source author, but this post is a great timely piece to insure we contemplate, and reflect on how we are attributing the work of others.  In our hurried-fast-pace-production world, we need to slow down and insure that we are practicing what we preach.

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, April 11, 2013 11:58 PM

This is also an important topic for librarians to address. We teach our students to cite sources and give attribution to the creators of materials they use in their projects. Is a link enough? And yes, just how much can you quote without losing your own voice?

I have a friend who teaches English courses at the college level and this is her biggest complaint. She says that the students simply do not know how to research. They don't know how to use databases or how to evaluate websites which seems so crazy to me. I'm not sure why these skills aren't being taught or integrated into every content area. Perhaps too much time is being spent preparing students for standardized testing.

14 Handy Tips on How to Better Use Google Images ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | K12, HE, NGOs, Non-Profits: INFORMATION LITERACY | Scoop.it

Med Kharbach: 


This is the fifth guide I created in a series of several posts on how to tap into the educational potential of Google services. Today's topic is Google Images. This is probably among those most used services in education. Teachers and students use images for a variety of learning and teaching reasons. However, before  including images in any classroom project, students need to learn about copyright issues.

scrible | smarter online research - annotate, organize & collaborate on web pages | K12, HE, NGOs, Non-Profits: INFORMATION LITERACY | Scoop.it

Even though the world uses the Internet to research nearly everything for work, school and home (job postings, press releases, Wikipedia articles, medical info, etc.), most folks still use old-school ways of annotating, organizing and sharing online info (printing to mark by hand, copying/pasting into Word, etc.). It's archaic, laborious and a waste of time. We're changing that. We're bringing Web-based research into the Internet Era by empowering people to mark up web pages in the browser and manage and collaborate on them online. And that's just the start... We've got much more planned in a variety of areas to help people manage the mounds of info they're pulling off the Web everyday.
