Podcast - Generation plagiarism?

( Click here to download the podcast )

The New York Times recently questioned whether today’s students, with easy access to tons of information via the Internet, plagiarize more often than students of the past did. The article also suggested that the rules of the game might be different in the digital age - that info-sharing sites like Wikipedia have confused kids about authorship and led them to believe that things found on the Internet are fair game for copying and pasting into school assignments. Is there any validity to this? What do high school students think about plagiarism in the digital age?
