The consistently changing mobile gadgets, for example, workstations, telephones, iPad and PC’s turned into an awesome learning instrument with extraordinary potential in the two classrooms and outside learning. However, the impacts of these gadgets can be addictive, leaving worries on if innovation ought to be utilized for educational improvement since they never again need to hold learning in the form of books and newspapers, and instead, can google it with no apprehension on who the data has belonged to or where it’s from. Innovation being one of the main impetuses without bounds; it is changing our lives and forming our future at rates amazing ever, with exceptionally outrageous outcomes which we can’t start to see or get it. Currently, we are overwhelmed with innovation. The innovation which encompasses nearly everybody in the cutting-edge group of individuals, from individuals on their iPhone, to stores wherever with a type of innovation the majority of this and more is changing each day, improving, and will potentially be separated in our lives. Children in the present age are snared onto innovation. Although it isn’t that they profoundly adore innovation but they are instead simple accustomed to a world that supplies children with it. Innovation has hugely affected youngsters that has expedited a few concerns. Our principle concern has been that albeit computerized innovation has supported youngsters’ ability for completing at least two things on the double, their capacity to process data profoundly might deteriorate. There is a gigantic measure of innovation currently, however there are three fundamental parts of innovation that is having the best hit on youngsters: Video amusements, Television, and Computer programs. The cutting-edge innovation we have today are colossally effective; they draw in our (identified with minor substance get together guidelines within living things) inclinations. The human cerebrum is pulled in to visuals, for example, Video diversions, TV, and PC programs which are altogether outwardly situated and in this way, they impact and keep the consideration of youngsters. We should also explain to children about the copyright laws, piracy, plagiarism, and googling.
By a long shot the biggest worry of innovation today is computer games. There have been such a significant number of trials and concentrates to attempt and make sense of if computer games have a negative or beneficial outcome on our kids. A developing group of research is connecting rough computer game play to forceful reasoning related process, dispositions and practices Video amusements can clearly be risky for our kids causing (furious, fierce conduct), awful exhibitions in school and (being exceptionally overweight). Although we tilt/dialect accuse these issues for the utilization of computer games, there have been numerous examinations to demonstrate so. Young men do appear to be more pulled in to computer games than young ladies are, Teen young ladies played computer games for a normal of 5 hours every week while young men found the middle value of 13 hours per week. This clearly proves that our kids spend too much time on devices instead of putting those hours into study.
The impacts of both vicious and peaceful computer game playing can be made sense of by choosing the measure of time playing the computer game and by the substance of the diversions being played. The substance of the recreations being played could have a factor in how a child performs in school, and how forceful they are towards companions and educators. Clearly if a youngster is playing tons of brutal computer games, this can prompt them carrying on viciousness and having no outcomes for it. On the off chance that a child took the time that they played computer games a week and utilized that opportunity to be begun/working at perusing, homework or even demonstrating the capacity to make fascinating new things movement we’d have less issues with our youngsters’ school exhibitions. Guardians should watch/overseeing to what extent their youngster is playing computer games, yet this doesn’t generally happen. A kid who plays computer games for drawn out stretches of time could likewise develop a social divider, turn into a recluse. It is critical for youngsters to communicate with other kids to help build up their social abilities, which without will make it difficult to make it in this world. At the age youngsters begin playing computer games, it is hard for them to recognize what is reality and what isn’t. So now and then the brutal demonstrations in computer games could influence the kids to trust the world is a frightening spot. Instead of playing video games our children could be studying and learning this could help improve their educational outcome and they could benefit more from studying from textbook instead of video games.
Amid the initial 2 years of a child’s life, the mind is at a basic creating period. TV can hinder a kid investigating, learning and investing energy communicating with their folks and other youngsters. Having sufficient energy to play with others enables children to build up the aptitudes they must develop psychologically, physically, socially and inwardly. On the off chance that guardians confine the TV that their pre-school age youngster is watching it can be something worth being thankful for whatever length of time that what they are viewing is instructive or age proper. If you permit your youngsters especially ages 2-7 to watch shows or motion pictures with frightening creatures, they will recollect those startling countenances. Kids this age experience serious difficulties recognizing genuine and dream, so to disclose to them that beasts don’t exist, wouldn’t generally reassure them. While kids 8-12 are typically terrified by cataclysmic events, the risk of brutality and exploitation of children. Numerous shows or motion pictures now days portray unsafe practices, for example, sex and substance manhandle. They depict these things as cool, fun and energizing, and there is frequently no dialog about the results of these activities. More now we are seeing liquor advertisements on TV, and more underage youngsters are being presented to them. More than 60% of TV programs being appeared in prime time contain some type of viciousness. They are presently connecting kid weight to over viewing of TV which incorporates at least four hours every day. While sitting in front of the TV kids are normally inert and generally eating. Children are getting overpowered with the numerous advertisements on TV urging them to eat undesirable sustenance’s. The advertisements are intended to target youngsters, by demonstrating sugary oat, or sugar filled soda pops. Youngsters are being controlled by publicizing organizations, so then they ask and beg their folks to get them precisely what they have seen on TV. In another investigation of preschoolers (ages 1-4), a youngster’s danger of being overweight expanded by 6% for each hour of TV viewed every day. On the off chance that that kid had a TV in his or her room, the chances of being overweight hopped an extra 31% for consistently viewed. Preschool youngsters with TVs in their room viewed an extra 4.8 hours of TV or recordings each week (Dennison, 2002). Guardians should regard sitting in front of the TV as a benefit, perhaps not permitting TV in their tyke’s room will help decrease the level of overweight kids. Its basic, decrease the measure of time your kids are doing nothing with their brains or body, and increment the measure of time they are investigating things and taking an interest in physical exercises. So, finished all its evident that observing excessively TV isn’t sound for any offspring of all ages, or even any grown-up.
Plagiarism has stained our education system for a long time. the explanation behind highlighting this drawback is that folks, particularly in our society are unaware of the consequences of plagiarism, and it’s deemed traditional with none sense of guilt or dishonesty, the more the internet grows it will continue to make it easier for people to fetch and take somebody else’s work as their own. therefore, this drawback has got to be known in order that this unethical apply will be eradicated. the primary step within the destruction ought to be to bring reforms within the instructional sector, because of students persevere these habits into their sensible lives inflicting social quandary.
What is Plagiarism?
“Plagiarism is the copying of ideas, wording, or anything else from another source without appropriate reference or acknowledgement so that it appears to be one’s own work. ”
• using someone else’s work and doing so without proper acknowledgement.
• rephrasing of someone else’s work does not alleviate one from the crime.
Plagiarism is unethical and dishonest. It is unfair to one’s fellows who worked hard and did the given work/assignment themselves. It like stealing from someone. It can damage one’s own credibility along with the credibility of the one whose work the person has plagiarized. Further it Prevents Learning. Hence awareness must be brought among the students so they can avoid these dire consequences of this practice.
Recognition of Plagiarism:
Recognizing plagiarism is one of the most important steps towards the eradication of this crime. Everyone needs to recognize the problem of student plagiarism in this internet era. The extent to which this problem has affected the academia is very deep. The reason behind the difficulty in the recognition of the problem is that it is not easy to define plagiarism as there is a very fine line between what can be borrowed and what can’t be. So, everyone in the environment i.e., peers, instructors must help students fetch information and guide them the right way to gain the information they seek.
Academic institute’s attitude:
In my opinion it is an ethical issue and hence schools can’t do much in this regard, besides making strict policies because just by creating mere policies and penalties this can’t be controlled effectively as students will find a way around detection. This is an issue that must be solved by teaching and talking to students about plagiarism in a friendly way. But our teachers do not give heed to plagiarism and once detected do not do the official procedure for the punishment, A few reasons behind such attitude are: The time required is not worth it. The time required in follow up procedures can affect concentration from teaching and learning, the procedures are very stressful, it’s not always the student’s fault because of the culture from they came can be different and they may not know the seriousness of the issue.
Internet- the ultimate seduction:
Apart from the culture students come from, the major reason behind the rise of plagiarism is the rise of the internet. The ease with which information is available has tempted everyone to do less work “Researching” and spend more time “Searching”. This is done extensively by students and without proper citation and hence they gain more by doing minimum work. The arrival of bit torrent sites has made it possible for students to get their hands-on material with a few clicks, that couldn’t have been borrowed without written permission of author before. These comforts have made plagiarism attractive to most of the students.
One serious issue is that now there are “paper mill” or commonly known as “cheat” sites. Which not only provide students with the material which they can copy and paste but they also encourage them to do less work and hence be “efficient” they proudly announce that they are aiding students while they are doing a serious offence and ruining the learning phase of many students. These sites enable students to buy material that is exactly what they need without even making the effort to search it online.
Once reasons behind plagiarism are known and we know how students can plagiarize we can take better measures to counter plagiarism.
What is piracy?
To understand what music piracy is one must first define it. According to Piracy (2001), music piracy is when a person utilizes copyrighted music without either purchasing it, or petitioning the songwriter, or singer for permission to use the music. In the late 20th and early years of the 21st century, this has most often occurred over the internet when a person downloads an MP3 from the internet from a website that does not charge the user for music downloads. Prior to the music industry and the Recording Industry, and Artists of America (RIAA) choosing to prosecute internet users who download pirated music this most frequently occurred on sites such as Napster and Kazaa (both of whom now charge for downloads). Sites such as the iTunes store that have always charged for music and video downloads have remained free of prosecution as they pay a fee to the record companies for use of the songs.
The music industry has chosen several different routes in their attempts to control music piracy and copyright law violation. First, they have chosen to sue file sharing websites such as Kazaa and Napster to ensure that these sites are charging for music downloads. The second method they have used to stop music piracy has been to monitor internet users, and prosecute those users that download pirated music. Finally, many record companies have begun to release copyright protected music that cannot be uploaded onto computers, or file sharing networks.
international copyright laws on the books that have been set up to help the international recording industry to deal with issues of music piracy. However, with the advancement of computer technology and the proliferation of file sharing sites on the Internet enforcing these laws has become difficult. This difficulty in stopping bootlegging and music piracy has created difficulties for the international recording industry. In many countries such as China music piracy runs rampant, and it is frequently left up to the countries themselves to try and stop people from illegally downloading, or purchasing bootlegged music.
Music Piracy is a serious offence however, the music industry has turned away listeners and potential purchasers of their music by prosecuting those listeners who have chosen to download music from formerly free file sharing sites such as Napster. Rather than choosing to legally pursue the developers and administrators of these websites, they have violated the trust of music fans at an international level.
The music industry must learn to accept new technology such as digital music downloads and to use this as a means of selling and publicizing their music. The increasingly advanced technology that is available to the recording industry has not been utilized the its fullest. They must also seek to educate the consumer, as many people are unaware of what internet materials are covered under current copyright laws, and what information falls under the terms of public domain.
The music industry must understand that in the digital age many of the old means of selling and publicizing their music must fall by the wayside if they are to remain competitive. MP3 and MP4 formatted music is the wave of the future and record companies that do not take advantage of this fact will no longer be successful. Artists must also come to realize that digital music and file sharing are merely another means by which they can gain publicity and respect from fans. In conclusion, the success of sites such as the iTunes store has demonstrated that file sharing and music downloading can be done in a successful cost-effective manner for both the consumer and the recording industry. However, the music industry must still fight to make illegal music piracy sites to either become fee for service sites and conform to international copyright laws, or shut down.
Google has thousands of online sources, but there are a few websites that can mislead information. Currently many of us refer to technology when we need to write down someone’s number, birthday or study for an exam. This is a quick and efficient way to get things jotted down but are we learning or remembering it? Studies show “people are less likely to remember certain details they believe will be accessible online.” (Wikipedia) this clearly shows that we are less likely to remember most details when online. Many of us when researching only must click enter then thousands of websites appear then we just click away looking at all these different bits of information, but we don’t know if its correct. Children are the main victim to this as they don’t understand what websites are safe or not.
Google being the most common search engine today, has many problems such as incorrect information, viruses and access to a lot of information which everyone can copy for their own benefit. Students do this maybe to complete an assignment or to write a paragraph which they were struggling with. So, google seems to be quick and easy for students because in the student’s perspective google has all the answers and everything we need to know but this isn’t true. Students can still find information in libraries within books, they could retain knowledge a lot better if they read and memorize or maybe write things down, this would increase the children’s educational outcome. Though the internet is still an extremely useful for learning about historian’s scientists and other people rely on it for their careers you can also lean many things to you never heard about.
Students apparently seem to never dig deep enough for information and are simply googling to retain enough information for an assignment instead of digging a little deeper to find better information or quotes. Mind shift states “according to a survey of more than 2000 high school teachers, “research” for today’s students means “googling” as a result doing research has shifted from a relatively slow process of intellectual curiosity and discovered to a fast paced, short-term excise”. They state that because of technology improving it has become quicker than ever before and will continue to do so.
This might seem to be good for students who need to finish an assignment however the fast-paced exercise known as googling has gotten rid of discovery and knowledge retained from books and other sources. Pew research Centre has stated that “just 12 percent said their students were very likely to use printed books (other than textbooks) in typical research assignment- just behind the 16% who said that their students would very likely to consult research librarians” this shows that students these days aren’t using textbooks for discovering information and are no longer discovering information for themselves they simply just need to google it to find what they need.
12% students Would use printed books
16% students Would consult Liberians
Which means 72% of students use the internet
Overall google is a quick and effiecent way to get things done but this will not help our childrens learning we need to be aweare of who owns the websites and to be sure that we don’t plagiarise on accident. To increase our childrens learning reading textbooks and writing things down will help a lot or going doen to see your local library in search for many books or consulting a libarian will be more effiecent then simply using google to your advantage.
