At times many of us feel like knocking our heads against the wall when a student hands in work that is plagiarized. This post includes eight GoAnimate videos that discuss plagiarism, from the view of the teacher and the students. Sharing them with staff at your school, or with the students, would promote discussion.

Joyce Valenza has embedded the videos into her post, and also provides a link to a Google presentation as well as a link to a video (on YouTube) which is the actual presentation.

The school year may be winding down, but plagiarism is here to stay. Take some time to review these and consider how you might share them next year.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 18, 2014 9:44 PM

Finding great educational videos takes time...so I am always excited when I find a list of suggested video. Jackie Gerstein shares her top 11. They range from just over three minutes to about seventeen minutes. Below is  a list of the videos.

* Malala Yousuf Nobel Prize Speech

* Carol Dweck: The Power of Believing You Can Improve

* Sir Ken Robinson: Can Creativity Be Taught

* President Obama on the Whitehouse Maker Faire

* Toxic Culture of Education: Joshua Katz

* The necessity of the student voice | Catherine Zhang

* Rethinking Learning in the Digital Age – Mitchel Resnick

* If I Knew Then: A Letter to Me on My First Day Teaching

* Kid President Throws a Surprise Party for a Retiring Teacher

* Erzah French: Sportskid of the Year

* Malcolm Mitchell Book Club

You will find brief descriptions for most of these videos and I suspect that many will choose to watch all of them over a period of time. You may find one or two that would be great to share at a faculty meeting.

What do we mean by share your evidence? It is a great question. What happens if something is said that does not fit with our expectations and pre-suppositions?

Sans questions pas de raisonnement. 

D'ailleurs, qu'est ce que la réflexion si ce n'est l'enchaînement de questions?

In General all people are visual in nature, some more than others, but things that can be seen and interpret right away are grasped and understood faster.

 

This infographic clearly provides the numbers behind the theory.

emlsearch can be a great help as academic search engine in addition to search from google yahoo and Bing it allows  users to email the search results, to keep with them for future reference. Allowing to search from google, yahoo and bing gives more depth and out-of-the-box search results with less effort and more time saving.
