Academic Dishonesty: Digital Cheating in the 21st Century



Personal technologies have been real game-changers for schoolwork. Information has never been easier to access and computers provide powerful
tools for presentation, collaboration, and creativity. Many believe that the mobile phone also has potential as a learning tool. But an unintended
consequence of these versatile technologies is that they've made cheating easier.
Although cheating has been going on for years, cell phones and
the Internet offer new opportunities for unethical behavior.
