What is Cheating in the Digital Age?

Tech Helpful

So I ask, what is cheating in this digital age? For instance, at our school, we use the LMS Canvas but it doesn't inherently lock a student into a quiz tab while taking a quiz so we have bought the "hack" known as Respondus Lockdown Browser as an add-on to do this. There is a little bit of irony that the hack is to prevent cheating but in this case, Respondus is what is known as a non-malicious hack that adds value to a product and the product readily accepts it.

Digital Testing Safeguards

In 2013 I wrote my first blog post on managing technology usage in the classroom. The fear of off task behavior still seems to be one of the main reasons teachers are hesitant to use technology five years later. It starts with intentional boundaries being placed on students anytime technology is in their hands from pre-K forward. I believe wholeheartedly that classroom management of students on devices is a digital citizenship issue. Easy access is eliminated.
