How do students access the resources they need? Survey finds only one in five obtain all resources legally. | Laura Czerniewicz | LSE.ac.uk | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

Academic textbooks are expensive and the cost of textbooks globally has continued to rise alarmingly even as other educational resources have become relatively cheaper. For students, open educational resources should make more sense – certainly financially. But, globally, the uptake of such resources is low. There are not nearly enough relevant local open-source textbooks in countries like South Africa, where I work at a university. Where they do exist, academics and students barely know about them.

So how do students access the resources they need? We investigated this as part of a larger research project across six countries: Argentina, Brazil, India, Poland, South Africa and the US. How do students access resources like books? Do they consider copyright and what do they think about it? Do they pirate learning materials? How do they make sense of what they do?

This study concentrated on students at one of South Africa’s top research-intensive universities. We compiled a survey that was answered by 1,001 students and conducted six focus groups with students across three professional disciplines. These disciplines were chosen because students were likely to be prescribed textbooks.

Here are a few key findings from the survey:

It looks like the race to content just did another victim which is none the less an Coca Cola. Brands and marketers still thinking originality = creation, be warned: in a web drowning in content, duplicating existing content doesn't add value. Curating it does.

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 | Linguagem Virtual | 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.

Is a link enough for attribution?

Paige Jaeger 's comment, April 11, 2013 8:31 AM
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!
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?

Addressing Academic Dishonesty in the Age of Ubiquitous Technology (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
Key Takeaways
Technology can help fight cheating that is itself based on technology, especially with tweaking of assignments and assessments in a way that makes it difficult to cheat.
Students should be made aware of resources such as university writing centers and tools such as Endnote.
Training about copyright, plagiarism, and time management can help students succeed without feeling that they have to cut corners.
Relevant codes and policies should be clearly stated in communications such as orientation materials, student handbooks, and course syllabi to establish expectations and reduce confrontations between instructors and students.

For my teaching friends or anyone considering doing writing at a post academic level. What a great resource for information on cutting down the rate of plagiarism. Much of what I see is not intentional but that makes little difference to a protective author, or the legal system.

Glad to see at Kansas City Kansas Community College we are already instituting most of these policies and practices.

Plagium, herramienta para detectar texto copiado de Internet

Plagium, herramienta para detectar texto copiado de Internet | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

En el ámbito educativo se da un caso muy común entre los estudiantes, y es el hecho de quemuchos de los trabajos, ensayos, resúmenes, proyectos y hasta tesis de grado que presentan, son plagiados de Internet, es decir que sin pena ni gloria copian y pegan el contenido tal cual lo encuentran en la web, lo que sin duda no es lo que un buen docente espera de sus alumnos y que en muchos casos resulta infringiendo los derechos de autor.

Para detectar en que caso un estudiante o persona esta plagiando texto de Internet y haciéndolo pasar como propio podemos utilizar varias herramientas en la red, pero en este articulo vamos a hacer énfasis en uno especializado para dicha tarea.
