One of the problems that teachers around the world face, is that students think that copying and pasting isn't too bad, it's a synonym for researching and thanks to the internet, this has become the digital version of plagiarism, people are getting used to reproduce information rather than to produce knowledge; just as technology has eased and refined plagiarism techniques, it has also developed simple tools to discover it; from google to Urkund, Turnitin or Safe Assign. The good news is that teachers can effectively help students become better on line researchers, by guiding them to look into the appropriate sites, to select relevant content, to paraphrase information and remind them that values and virtues should always be kept in mind.
