Can we call it cooperative work?

In Defense of Cheating. ‘No, I am not in favor of deception, trickery, fraud, or swindle. What I wish to change are the curricula and examination practices of our school systems that insist on unaided work, arbitrary learning of irrelevant and uninteresting facts. I’d like to move them toward an emphasis on understanding, on knowing how to get to an answer rather than knowing the answer, and on cooperation rather than isolation.’ [via Online Learning Update]

Cheating: where to draw the line. ‘Throughout the long and chequered history of the British school examination system, one ancient principle has remained intact: to cheat is more shameful than to fail, and any student caught in the act should expect the severest of punishments.’
