Amy Bruneau & Butch Lehman Academic Dishonesty Academic Dishonesty
in a Digital World Worldview Application Intellectual Ownership has lost its value Cybercheating:
-The use of technology tools in inappropriate ways for academic work.

-A growing challenge for students, parents, educators, and the community. “What’s changed is technology. It’s made cheating so easy” (ac cited in Conradson & Hernadez-Ramos, 2004, p. 2). Technology & Academic Dishonesty vs “The rapid and constant pace of change in technology is creating both opportunities and challenges for schools” (Education Week, 2011, pg. 1). A Changing Landscape . . . The root causes or reasons for student cheating/plagiarism

Often, unaddressed by teachers but instead assumed

If teachers hope to combat academic dishonesty they must address both these dimensions The damaging eruption of an underlying ethical issue

If teachers hope to combat academic dishonesty they must address both these dimensions The damaging eruption of an underlying ethical issue

Often when teachers first realize and address issues of academic dishonesty The Immediate Problem: Cheating/Plagiarism The Underlying Problem: Digital Ethics Cybercheating: An Exploding Volcano With all the expectations and requirements placed upon
teachers, how are they to deal with these new challenges? BUT It's a tool for learning. A tool that is often misused. Computers have amazing options to strengthen
the learning of our students... Proposed Solutions Several Things to Help Relieve This Issue #1-Teach Ethics Heart of the Issue? Society is so used to INSTANT GRATIFICATION. Students have come to not understand the demands for completing research. Teaching the value of ethics will hopefully awaken the integrity of the individual to hold themselves to higher standards. Ethics are not in play ETHICS #2-Provide Passionate and Relevant Topics Passionate Topics Motivate Students Chore vs. Desire Relevant Topics = Allows them to Identify Ingrained with Natural Curiosity Finding a point of connection=Students will take pride and ownership in their work #3- Teach Plagiarism One reason: Students are not informed Teaching plagiarism builds confidence Confident Students=Confident Writers Accidental plagiarism can be avoided Ethics + Plagiarism=Two Big Hurtles Mastered #4- Build Accountability From Within Successful, thorough researchers with integrity Students have to know the consequences Consequences MUST be upheld Not enforcing given expectations will only encourage the issue of plagiarism. Use anti-plagiarism software Turnitin.com
HowOriginal.com (Anti-Plagiarism Software Pros and Cons) Google #5- Build a Community of Support Both Online and Offline Helps to build confidence in the students and provides guidance in their process With help readily available=Questions will be asked Training students early to do this
process correctly makes it easier for
them in the long run. http://edieparrott.typepad.com/gladly-would-i-teach/teacher-frustration/ http://level343.com/article_archive/2012/11/19/social-media-ethics-have-you-thought-about-it/ http://www.dawn-productions.com/as-i-see-it/quote-of-the-day-dorothy-parker-on-curiosity/ http://www.nadmnewgirlinthecity.com/2012/09/been-evaluating-thingswhen-do-we-find.html http://connectwithbrown.com/2012/11/02/group-work-for-better-or-for-worse/ 1-Develop Relationships Aligned with Donaldson's Model Respect of the students
