How To Combat Student Plagiarism - Edudemic

How To Combat Student Plagiarism - Edudemic | Scoop.it! Ed topics | Scoop.it
It's exam time and students are stressing about turning in papers on time. What's a teacher to do in terms of noticing student plagiarism?
Connie Wise's insight:

In the new digital frontier, we need to hold digital literacy at the forefront when teaching students how to use and incorporate material into their work. Today’s students are used to rapid answers to questions via quick searches (again, verified by PEW in “How Teens Do Research”). While this is not necessarily bad, it does mean that as educators we need to change the way we approach research projects in the classroom so that we can teach students to not only do traditional research, but also to effectively use online media and content. By incorporating these strategies, we can start to combat plagiarism before it begins.

The Truth About Snapchat: A Digital Literacy Lesson for Us All - The Digital Shift

The Truth About Snapchat: A Digital Literacy Lesson for Us All - The Digital Shift | Scoop.it! Ed topics | Scoop.it

The idea of Snapchat is simple, delightfully so. Take an image or a video, send it to a friend or paramour. Ten seconds after the receiver opens the file, it self-destructs, and the sender can rest assured that no trace of the message remains. Signed, sealed, delivered, deleted.

But that’s not quite true

Connie Wise's insight:

The best way to get young users thinking about the risks of sharing sensitive information online, he says, is through horror stories. “There are so many stories of kids posting something embarrassing on Facebook and then not getting accepted to college. You always think, ‘it’s not going to happen to me.’”

Gwyneth Jones, a librarian at Murray Hill Middle School library in Laurel, MD, says that she doesn’t believe in “Internet safety,” only “Internet awareness.”

Kristina Holzweiss's curator insight, April 28, 2013 7:12 PM

The Historical Scene Investigation Project (HSI) was designed for social studies teachers who need a strong pedagogical mechanism for bringing primary sources into their classroom. With the advent and accessibility of the internet, many libraries, universities and government agencies are housing their historical documents online. Simultaneously, there has been a push in K-12 history education to give students experiences that more closely resemble the work of a real historian.

Cloud Technology Forecast: Sunshine with Chance of Showers | District Administration Magazine

Cloud Technology Forecast: Sunshine with Chance of Showers | District Administration Magazine | Scoop.it! Ed topics | Scoop.it

"Cloud computing is taking K12 by storm with fully 90 percent of K12 institutions relying on or implementing cloud technology in 2012, according to the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN). District CIOs are under increased pressure to cut costs and keep up with the latest technological trends, and implementing the cloud is an easy fix."

Connie Wise's insight:

"Like any new technology, the move toward the cloud carries risks, especially when it comes to privacy and security.
For school district leaders who store confidential information, including students’ addresses, health records, tests scores, and photos on the cloud, ensuring that it is both secure and accessible is especially important."
