Even though the article is long, and does seem to repeat what it is saying, this is an interesting read.  Why are our teachers not being taught so that they can support the needs of our children in the 21st century.  We need to come up with more engaging ways of exciting our children about learning, and about their futures, so that they see tertiary education as more than just a ticket......

ICTE Solutions Australia's curator insight, December 28, 2015 11:43 PM

In an ICT integrated society, it is important that people are information literate. That means being able to search for and analyse information for their benefits. As websites on the Internet become more popular teachers need to teach their students the right skills and knowledge so that their students are able to become information literate. Any guide therefore, that will assist teachers in doing so is worth using as a resource as reference for both teachers and students to use.

What’s the point of education if Google can tell us anything? | Professional Learning for Education | Scoop.it

Such debate about the place and purpose of online searching in learning and assessments is not new. But rather than thinking of ways to prevent students from cheating or plagiarising in their assessed pieces of work, maybe our obsession with the “authenticity” of their coursework or assessment is missing another important educational point.

Interesting read about the nature of knowledge and learning.

DebbyBruck's comment, August 18, 2015 3:29 AM
This is so right on - thank you. Educating one's self online is empowering only if the user understands the difference between "crap collection" and that which is meaningful and useable at the time of curation. Curation only has value when we use the information in the moment as a motivator and inspiration to carry on in bettering ourselves in the here and now. This is my idea of content curation and educating on what speaks to our hearts in the very NOW moment.
DebbyBruck's curator insight, August 18, 2015 4:23 AM

Online searching/learning has a definite and substantial impact in our world today. Just remember to use regularly what you are saving (or curating), and to balance it all with real world experience.  Visit your elders, your neighbors, your parents, your community, your friends (and listen to their stories): in many cases they were alive many decades before you were.  They saw wars, political changes, social movements, etc., that can never be described in the same way online than from first hand experience.  Honor these people by your presence AND learn all you can online. Temper all of it by having one foot in the world of FREE information and one foot in the world of first-hand contact with those who lived those times. The cool thing about attending a school (in person) is you get the best of both worlds - interaction with others and your time online.

Reshmi_Insomreadniac's curator insight, September 16, 2015 9:04 AM

//In an era of informational abundance, educational end-products – the exam or piece of coursework – need to become less about a single student creating an “authentic” text, and more about a certain kind of digital literacy which harnesses the wisdom of the network of information that is available at the click of a button.//

Addressing Academic Dishonesty in the Age of Ubiquitous Technology (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Professional Learning for Education | 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.
