Awesome Resource site: Brain Pop
Information surrounds us, and the various Web 2.0 resources that are so easy to access and share make it more difficult to determine who actually "owns" the information. Students get very confusing messages about the moral principles of downloading music, pictures and other content without paying for it. No wonder it can be difficult for all of us to understand the concepts of "academic dishonesty and plagiarism". These sites offer both students and teachers advice and information about what plagiarism is and how it can be avoided. There are separate sections for those who are struggling with writing policy, those who are teaching about plagiarism, and those who need a reference as they write.
