Conversation Description:

This presentation is an extension of a Twitter conversation in response to a keynote presentation at ISTE 2010. One presenter felt that he was witnessing an act of plagiarism, while the other felt he was seeing remix in action. Their constructive disagreement is worth further exploration.
Clearly, there are many differing views on the role of proper use of the work of others. What is the place of citation in the work we are doing with students and others? When should you cite? How? What does a digital citation, or linktribution, as Alan Levine calls it, look like online?
Perhaps you never thought about it or perhaps you never considered the issue in its totality. This discussion will raise your awareness of this issue that fundamentally affects us because ideas are at the core of all of our curricula. Through citation, we ask students to connect ideas together and create new ones, but the issue of citation masks the fundamental question of the relationship between ideas and their creators.

Come be a part of a conversation about where ideas come from and whether how we use the read/write web has changed the way in which we treat our sources. While this discussion will be about abstract concepts, each participant will walk away with practical ideas on how to negotiate plagiarism in their classroom and in their online life.

Conversational Practice:
This conversation will be framed by the presenters stories and experiences around these issues. In fact, this presentation is an extension of a Twitter conversation in response to a keynote presentation at ISTE 2010. After the presenters share their stories to frame the conversation around some questions about ideas, credit, and citation, the presenters will pose those questions to the folks in the room to extend and share with their own experiences. All conversation will be captured for later exploration and the group will write together, as well, in a shared collaborative space, a collection of ideas for negotiating issues of citation and plagiarism.
