Technology is a double-edged sword for the writing teacher. While the Internet offers a wealth of information for students to access and incorporate into their research and writing, it also tempts students, including second language learners, to pass off the words of other authors as their own. A few students are looking for shortcuts, but many students simply do not know how to properly paraphrase, quote or use citations. Turnitin.com, a product of iParadigms LLC, may be a useful tool to address these problems.
