Cheating students or Facilitating Teachers
It is already common to see teachers assigning assignments or monographs to students on a daily basis, and they appeal for Internet searches to quickly comply. But if this is so common, how often do teachers thoroughly evaluate the work presented by their students?
Generally the student is accused of copying, but it is not determined how easy the teacher has put the student, many times by avoiding overwork or simply by not doing his job as it should be.
Referring to the attitudes that teachers take to students in such cases, we can consider the following:
The teacher controller: who prohibits the use of the Internet to nurture an investigation, also can avoid the presentation of works in digital or printed format, requesting to be delivered in a handwritten form.
The evasive teacher: this could be the most «easy» of all because he ignores the tool that the student uses to present his research.
The committed teacher: this aupa the use of new technologies for the search of knowledge that supports their investigations in addition to helping their students to use the resource given the case.
In general, the use of New Technologies as a tool for bibliographic searches is one of the points of greater discussion around the area of education, but like all things, the problem is not its use, but its abuse, remains on the student’s part Being honest and making the effort due, and the teacher being committed, evaluating but not evasive about it.
