Cheating has been a problem for educators for decades. Educators that teach anything from elementary to college level courses have had experience with cheating in some form. In the traditional form, passing notes and cheat sheets have been the form in which most cheating has occurred. Catching cheaters can be an extremely difficult task for some teachers. With the increasing availability of technology, new forms of cheating have evolved. Students are using technology to cheat. Why do these students cheat? What forms of technology are in use to cheat? Are America's teachers prepared to deal with the new forms of cheating? The understanding of common practices will help reduce instances of cheating students as teachers become savvy in the newest forms of cheating. The purpose of Using Technology to Cheat: Can Schools Protect Themselves is to investigate the many ways that technology is being used to cheat on assignments, discuss the problem of cheating, and prepare teachers for students using technology to cheat. A design for a Blackboard course is included to help teach other educators about methods of cheating and to help deter academic dishonesty.
