What is Cheating in the Digital Age?

Tech Helpful

So I ask, what is cheating in this digital age? Here is my opinion why it seems more acceptable to students to work the system: Hacking is acceptable and seen as a skill. According to the Techopedia website, hacking is the ability to break into a system ( [link] ) but every single day as an instructional technologist I sit at my desk and wish for different educational platforms to be able to do certain things they cannot and I look for add-ons (or hacks) to make it happen.

Digital Testing Safeguards

I believe wholeheartedly that classroom management of students on devices is a digital citizenship issue. Access Codes - Codes serve as a safeguard that students cannot access exams when you are not ready for them to access it. Giving students the code right at exam time and then changing the code once everyone is in is a way to make sure different sections you teach are not accessing the exam when they are not in your presence. Easy access is eliminated.
