plagiarism and academic integrity

Posner, Kouwe, and Hegemann: old-school vs. new-school attitudes about plagiarism

Generation-Y literary remixing? or plagiarism?

I’ve typically come to the defense of Gen Y, to which I belong, when baby boomers and others accuse us of neglecting personal relationships in favor of social networking, or of growing so reliant on technology that we’re unable to operate an actual telephone book or read a paper map. I even make my living doing all kinds of Millennial-y things like blogging and writing for online publications. But I also went to a solid journalism school that instilled me with plenty of old-old-school values, many of which I don’t think are forgiving when it comes to lifting another person’s writing or insights without also admitting where you got them.

The current concept of plagiarism is based on a capitalist view of property and ownership. It assumes that everything of value can be owned, bought, and sold and that ideas, knowledge, and art are created by individuals who have the rights of ownership. This view is deeply ingrained in Western culture.

Traditional definitions of plagiarism are further challenged by the digital revolution.

This situation has caused the current Millennial generation to see knowledge ownership, acquisition, and distribution in radically different terms than in previous generations. Clearly,
academia is past due in reevaluating the concept and how we deal with it in secondary and higher
education.

On Millennials

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on 21st May 2013

Millennials comprise the largest generational sector since the baby boomers. As this group enters the job market, training organizations will be forced to find new innovative ways to reach this new audience.

Schaffhauser, D. (2015). American Millennials Not Terribly Bright When It Comes to Pretty Much Everything That Matters, Analysis Finds. Campus Technology. Retrieved from http://campustechnology.com/articles/2015/03/04/american-millennials-not-terribly-bright.aspx
America’s Skills Challenge: Millennials and the Future” actually examines data from a couple of years ago that came out of the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) to compare the United States to 21 other member countries in the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

American PISA Scores Drop

The numbers are in from the latest Programme for International Student Assessment(PISA), and for American students, as United States Department of EducationSecretary Arne Duncan put it, “It is a picture of educational stagnation.”
The problem is not that our 15-year-olds are performing worse today than before. The problem is that they’re simply not making progress. Students in many other nations are advancing instead of standing still. In a knowledge-based global economy where education is more important than ever before, both to individual success and collective prosperity, our students are basically losing ground. We’re running in place as other high performing countries start to lap us.”
Daniel Domenech, executive director of AASA, theSchool Superintendents Association. “The problem we find in American education isn’t that schools are ‘falling behind,’ it is that schools are ‘pulling apart.’ Poverty in America is the real issue behind today’s education gap.
Among the findings: Top-performing countries, primarily those in Asia, place great emphasis on selecting and training teachers, encourage them to work together and prioritize investment in teacher quality. They also set clear targets and give teachers autonomy in the classroom to achieve them.

“This report suggests that far too many are graduating high school and completing postsecondary educational programs without receiving adequate skills,” the report stated. “If we expect to have a better educated population and a more competitive workforce, policy makers and other stakeholders will need to shift the conversation from one of educational attainment to one that acknowledges the growing importance of skills and examines these more critically.”
