As we are now living in this information generation being bombarded with the ease of information accessiblity AND you are facing the New Senior Secondary Reform, it is extremley important for you to understand what PLAGIARISM is, to learn to avoid as well as to learn to ‘make good use’ of what we’ve got now to acquire worldwide knowledge and develop critical thinking.

Here are a plagiarist and a smart student who knows how to acquire her knowledge. Please compare:

Plagiarism                             Good Example of being a wise student in this generation

 The plagiarist has not shown any research part in his assignment or NO REFERENCE. He hasn’t mentioned where he quoted the material and tried to fool people certain part of his writing was written by him.

While the wise student did and showed her research to make it known where she cited the material. Then look into her writing. She only quoted the objective facts about the company’s mission statement and details of campaigns/event held and reflected her own opinions on the topic. This shows her own understanding of the materials quoted, analysed and DEVELOPED HER OWN POINT OF VIEW.

Please ask if you have any question. Make sure you understand as PLAGIARISM IS A CRIME against INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHT.

CM on the following:

1. Do you understand what plagiarism is?

2. What is/are your corresponding action(s) to be a WISE student in this generation?

(If you have ever plagiarised and want to take back your homework/composition for improvement and reference edition, please feel free to see you anytime.)

2/I think,when we are searching the information from the internet,the informations are made by others,we can’t copy it, we must perceive it, understand it then use our own knowledge to change it into some new things.It can let us test ourselves how much understanding that we’ve absorbed from the information assuredly.

The difference is copy is you have never think about the content but search is a process that you have think and find the best information. Therefore I am corresponding to search information in the Internet.

Comment by Candy

Yes,I understand.
Usually the informations in the internet is useful,we can learn many new vocabs from it.But we have to learn them and absorb them,keep them in our brian and use them in our compositions. Never just coppy them,this is silly and useless if we become a plagiarist.Plagiarists are just punishing themselves that they can’t gain any knowledge during having their compositions.
I will not become a plagiarist.

Getting ideas from different sources and people is what everyone would do. I think we should understand the core of thoughts before applying someone else’s ideas. Don’t just copy them.

I’m glad that most of you understand what plagiarism is and the corresponding actions you should take.

However, just want to add in:
Plagiarism is not just homework copying, but also the IDEA STEALING, NO MATTER HOW YOU CHANGE THE WORDS.

I know you all can have a lot of creative ideas. 🙂
