Voki Script

One thing for sure, technology makes it easy to copy and share ideas and information.  But a person can get into big trouble when they share ideas and information that they don't own.  Almost everyday we read about people who made the mistake of copying and publishing without asking permission.  For instance:

  • Remember the block party in Wisconsin that put a copyrighted photo on a t-shirt and ended up with a lawsuit? 
  • Or how about the video game lawsuits claiming one company copied another companies idea? 
  • Plagiarism in a research project can lead to dismissal from a college. 

So how do you make sure you are not plagiarizing?  The key is organized research.  Step into this module to learn ways to make sure your work is original.

To begin, listen to the Voiki by clicking on the play button.

By the end of the module you will be able to state:

  • I can take good notes from my sources on the evidence I have gathered.
  • I can organize my sources and notes, using appropriate tools.
  • I can keep track of information from a variety of sources to avoid plagiarism.
