The Sources in Student Writing
“The internet has changed the very meaning of ‘research’," according to a recently released Pew Research Center study.
In 2011 Turnitin brought critical attention to the types of internet sources that students predominantly use, specifically those that disseminate shared or unoriginal content. Join us for an engaging 2012 update of findings culled from the analysis of online sources drawn from over 30 million student papers. In addition to a review of the top sources and a breakdown of the differences between secondary and higher education, our panelists will discuss the implications of these findings for student research habits and share best practices for educators to help prevent plagiarism in the classroom.
