What is Cheating in the Digital Age?

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

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.
