USER GENERATED – 1:1 and Mobile Technologies by John D’Arcy – Using tablets in the classroom & Plagiarism policies that work. Where have you seen improvements towards student & staff awareness of giving credit where its due?

by @digitalversion How do teachers assess work created in an app on shared iPads? Have you found a manageable scenario? I’ve been reading about Box services and Box OneCloud – but I’m really not sure how young learners would manage this. Do you have any ideas you don’t mind sharing?
