It is not smart because they cheating and if caught the consequences will be harsh. This incident mostly happens when a person is lazy to do their own work. “ The deliberate plagiarism of someone else's work is unethical, academically dishonest, and grounds for disciplinary actions, including expulsion” ( Dean of student). It is a waste of time copying because the teacher will know when a person copies and that person will get caught. So do not waste time copying just do the work and it will not be a waste.
“Morality is the basis of things and truth is the substance of all morality” Gandhi. Lack of morality in the society we have today has become the biggest problem in today’s generation that has created a gap between adults and kids. The lack of morality can be traced back to the modernization of people and technology along with social influences that are very influential in developing teens. With the modernization of technology, the gap between morals and social standard have become blurrier and blurrier because with technology there, has been a large social standard to uphold. The modernization technology has created distractions from the main goal because you’re always shifting from one screen or one goal to the next because the falsified goals we create have a better influence than our main goals.
In a way, plagiarism almost defines cheating and narrows down the definition of cheating by taking the work of another person and taking the credit as one’s own, therefore “cheating” the system and even the student themselves out of what could have been a valuable learning opportunity. The student who has committed plagiarism has not only cheated him or herself out of the chance at what is valuable information about their job. It also wastes the time of the instructor between the repercussions of the cheating and the lack of knowledge the student has now obtained by not doing their own work in the first place. It however, creates a teachable moment for the instructor to can show their students how to learn from their mistakes and not repeat them later in life. Even today, society frowns upon cheating; however, plagiarism has become an everyday occurrence whether it be using the musical hook from that one commercial as the basis for your next hit song to using and downloading a research paper off the internet
In this imagined society, technological tools fascinate people – they desire them and practically dream about them. This essay will demonstrate that people are so accustomed to the presence of mass media that they unconsciously become anti-intellectual because the society does not encourage them to use their critical thinking, as the majority prefers simplicity rather than complexity e.g. details in books. In fact, the mass electronic media encourages conformity, censorship, and only brings bleak consequences rather than happiness. The society appears utopic in nature, but in reality people who live there are miserable and unhappy.
Reasons for these may potentially be because of laziness, the strong desire for a good grade, pressure, stress, or simply because they want to take credit of another individual’s work. Plagiarism is a reoccurring thing people are likely to experience throughout their lifetime, but everyone may avoid the situations by proper education about the topic and how to elude from accidental plagiarism. First example of common plagiarism is the blunt copying of another individual’s creation completely and making it as their own. “ Direct plagiarism is the word-for-word transcription of a section of someone else’s work, without attribution and without quotation marks”
Johnson states “ Cheating in school continues to be rampant, A substantial majority(60%) cheated on a test during the past year (35% did so two or more times) and one in three (33%) said they used the internet to plagiarize an assignment. Johnson saw these statistics as it is being a key point to start holding bans on technology and punishing e-cheating. The key factor that gets these educators all concerned is because the students do not learn at all, the way they get answers to homework, quizzes, and test is by looking at their cell phones. Howard Johnson believes that any form of technology that gives
Most of the humanity has been subjected gradually to the scientific and technological civilization. Existentialism has done more harm than good in our school in the modern society, and its impacts is as follows; • As an existentialist, they want full development of the individual individuality, and that it doesn’t fancy a one sided development of a student. It actually looks at how a student accepts who they are and trying to change it, would bring out some conflict. • They doesn’t give too much attention to objective understanding of the curriculum, instead, they dislike the over importance given to subjects like mathematics and sciences. They go to the extent of opposing the subjects also, but don’t disregard them in totality.
College students have constant access to cell phones which they cheat with and this leads them to mistake information for learning. College students are cheating for a number of reasons like taking the easy way out and to get ahead of the work they are given. According to Jagadesh Kumar, M. , author of the article “Honestly Speaking about Academic Dishonesty” states, “Increased competition to get better grades and a skewed shift in our focus from the joy of learning.” (p.357). This quote is explaining one reason why undergraduates cheat . College students are pressured to get all of the work done the right way and they have no time to enjoy themselves outside of that work.
Page 20 of the text demonstrates why the above myth is false. The text shows that those who have access to higher education are not exempt from human trafficking. Societal pressures ranging from family prestige, having to earn a lot of money from their career and going to school coupled with poor choices of migration lead to increased trafficking of women in Bangkok, Malaysia, and Japan. Page 22 responds with another objection to the myth and that targets the trafficker as a person. The text shows that the trafficker is a criminal, therefore has made their intentions clear.
