Academic Honesty & Integrated Science

One of the great reasons to join a community like ours is to be able to launch your own learning from a rich base of high-quality work. We are thrilled to share our work with teachers and learners around the globe, and to provide users with digital flexibility in how they use these learning tools. Instead of forcing schools to use proprietary platforms or unalterable PDFs, we trust our subscribers to follow the reasonable guidelines stated below. Subscribers can use the materials in Integrated Science (the “program”) on the following terms:

• Subscribers can modify, respond to, reformat and otherwise utilize the materials in this program for educational purposes only (for example, you are not allowed to commercialize modified versions);

• Subscribers must include the footer of our original document in any new or modified document they create based on our work. This ensures that EduChange continues to receive attribution as the creator of this work, which represents an investment of over fourteen years of time, expertise, money and effort on the part of many dedicated individuals;

• Subscribers can share modified versions or other work product based on this program, but only with other subscribers (within your school community or with other schools who subscribe to the program);

• Subscribers cannot distribute any modified versions or other work product based on this program to individuals or organizations that do not subscribe to the program (for example, you are not allowed to post modified versions on publicly-available or conference websites).

This program is licensed to subscribers subject to these basic terms. Help remind each other when someone unintentionally forgets. If you would like to incorporate materials from this program into a conference presentation, which we are happy to consider, you are required to obtain our prior written permission by contacting us at info@educhange.com.

Other educational organizations have raised awareness of the issue of academic honesty. The International Baccalaureate (IB) discusses the issue in light of required student research projects and assessments. Rutgers University and The International Center for Academic Integrity provide resources online. Schools also use the L.A.R.K. framework, reminding members of their academic community to act in ways that are “legal, appropriate, responsible and kind.”

If you have any questions or would like to learn more about how to educate your community about this important issue, do not hesitate to contact us at info@educhange.com
