Copy- and paste-plagiarism Technology as a blind alley or a road to better learning Lars-Erik Nilsson Anders Eklöf Kristianstad University
The recreation of Hamlet
Purpose of paper We will discuss two different ways of conceptualizing how students use technology. In the first perspective students are positioned as cheaters and their use of technology is seen as an ethical problem In the second perspective students are positioned as learners and cheating is seen as a pedagogical problem.
Conflicting pictures Research on cheating Student declarations – I cheat Epidemic increase Mostly different kind of plagiarism Research on learning Culture Assignement Making sence of technology affordances
Transport and Transform A metaphor conceptualizing what is seen as the problem
Transport-analyse-transform A metaphor conceptualising the solution

“Then as he grew up, he became stern and demanding, like his father. Hitler was born to Alois Hitler and Klara Pölzl and was the fourth child of his father's third marriage" (Stein 2). Hitler did well in the monastery school and also took part in the boys' choir (Joakims[AE1] ). "As a young boy Hitler idolized the priests and for two years seriously considered becoming a priest himself" (Patrons). His father would beat the children and occasionally Adolf's mother Klara as well (Marrin). Hitler tried to please his father, but never could. "His father would slap him and beat him with a cane, dog whip, or belt. Hitler had great fear of his father and hated even to come home. In Hitler's teen years, he discovered he had great artistic skills. Adolf, he said, must go to the technical school in Linz and become a civil servant like himself" (Marrin). Alois Hitler also had an illegitimate son, Alois junior, and a daughter, Angela, with his second wife. In Mein Kampf Adolf Hitler describes his father as an irascible tyrant, however there is little indication Alois Hitler treated his son more strictly than was usual for that time and place. [AE1]Jag minns inte, är det du som har plockat in referenserna här för att visa varifrån de kommer eller har programmet gjort det. Om det är du så bör det vara ganska tydligt att vi har gjort det.

Discussion Do teachers conceptualize these software as a threat to learning? a prompt for a redifinition of copy, original, own text? How could the affordances of such software best be studied?
