Teacher Tools for Plagiarism in the Classroom
Be Proactive in Helping your Students Avoid Plagiarism
A Balance is Important
According to Paul Rapp, intellectual property attorney and adjunct professor, Albany Law School, educators must find a balance between being "responsible" users of information and not fearing the use of other people's work for creative purposes.
Art vs Writing
Students should always cite sources when they write, giving credit where credit is due. However in the arts, students should not let copyright impede their creativity. When an artist "remixes" or creates a "mashup" the artist must insure it is transforming the work into something new.
