Plagiarism vs. Collaboration on Education's Digital Frontier - 89 views

  •  
    You make some very good points but I think you could go further. The reason we put so much emphasis on "originality" is because we were preparing students for a world in which they would have to prepare written and oral presentations individually. In the modern workplace, very little is done that way anymore. Authorship is not what it used to be. Now, everything seems to be collaborative, generated at "stand-up" meetings of the whole "team". I'm not sure the end result is better, but it's clear that the very concept of plagiarism needs reconsideration. What if we created exercises around the task of correcting other people's work? Wouldn't that be more useful and "creative"?

      I like the idea of Skyping with people from other countries.  I could get the kids to come up with a list of questions first.  My biggest question is HOW do I connect/find someone from another country?
