Understanding Plagiarism

Our middle school is 1:1 with Chromebooks so students spend a fair amount of time researching topics online.  A teacher noticed there is a lot of copying and pasting of information by students and asked me to come in and have a conversation about plagiarism.  I developed a Prezi with an accompanying notes guide for the students to complete as I presented the content to them.  The Prezi and notes guide are below.  As we wrapped up the students were able to use their Chromebooks for a bit of fun (with a topic that isn't so fun).  We played a Kahoot game where they reviewed concepts about plagiarism from their guide.  They loved it!  What I loved is that Kahoot also provides a summary of student responses to the game- I can see which students missed specific questions which allows me to follow up if needed.

Resources used in the presentation (good for teachers and students):

Here's a link to our Kahoot game as well as a screenshot of what the results looked like after one class played:  https://play.kahoot.it/#/k/efaee966-49fb-4ddc-bc9c-95cb7f38050a
