Tips for Teachers: Dealing with Plagiarism — The Learning Scientists 1) Teach students about plagiarism in the classroom, even if they should have "learned it" already. Repetition of information, especially spaced repetition (1), improves learning. Learning about plagiarism is no different. If you teach a class for more advanced students, it is important to remember that students may not have yet mastered the more nuanced issues of academic integrity. 2) Have students go through the Indiana University Plagiarism Training. The Indiana University training program is fantastic for advanced high school students through graduate students. After the tutorial, a certification test is available. Of course, this isn’t the only resource available to learn about plagiarism. 3) Show your students examples of plagiarism beyond just word-for-word plagiarism. As I mentioned earlier, copying an entire paragraph or even paper should be clearly recognized as plagiarism by most students who have had any sort of instruction about plagiarism.

Is Google Making Us Stupid? The process of adapting to new intellectual technologies is reflected in the changing metaphors we use to explain ourselves to ourselves. When the mechanical clock arrived, people began thinking of their brains as operating “like clockwork.” Today, in the age of software, we have come to think of them as operating “like computers.” But the changes, neuroscience tells us, go much deeper than metaphor. Thanks to our brain’s plasticity, the adaptation occurs also at a biological level. The Internet promises to have particularly far-reaching effects on cognition. When the Net absorbs a medium, that medium is re-created in the Net’s image. The Net’s influence doesn’t end at the edges of a computer screen, either. Never has a communications system played so many roles in our lives—or exerted such broad influence over our thoughts—as the Internet does today.

This is the ninth deterioration in peacefulness in the last twelve years, with 81 countries improving, and 80 recording deteriorations over the past year. The 2020 GPI reveals a world in which the conflicts and crises that emerged in the past decade have begun to abate, only to be replaced with a new wave of tension and uncertainty as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Iceland remains the most peaceful country in the world, a position it has held since 2008. It is joined at the top of the index by New Zealand, Austria, Portugal, and Denmark. Afghanistan is the least peaceful country in the world for the second year in a row, followed by Syria, Iraq, South Sudan and Yemen. Only two of the nine regions in the world became more peaceful over the past year. The world is now considerably less peaceful than it was at the inception of the index.

The Handbook of Texas Online | Texas State Historical Association (TSHA) Houston is Texas’s biggest city and the fourth largest city in the country. Founded on the banks of Buffalo Bayou in 1836, Houston is a city focused on progress, and is always keeping an eye towards the future. But it also has a rich and important history, which has affected the state, the nation, and the world. Houston served as the first permanent capital of the Republic of Texas, hosted the state’s first presidential convention, and built Texas’s first freeway and the world’s first air-conditioned sports stadium. In 1969 “Houston” rang out as the first word spoken from the moon, a nod to its legacy as “Space City.” Currently the Handbook of Houston is curating new entries and seeking contributors to be involved in the project.
