Denmark to Allow Internet Use During Exams


Politiken is reporting that several high schools in Denmark will be allowing 'A' level students to have Internet access during their written exams. If the experiment goes well, the system will be implemented across the country for the 2011 high school exams.

According to Politiken, the Ministry of Education will require that papers be handed in digitally, and administrators will carry out random site checks to curb plagiarism and cheating.

We love this idea. Before you cry foul, remember that there was a time when calculators weren't allowed to be used in tests. School is about preparing students for the real world, and these days the Internet allows information to be obtained at the blink of an eye. Plus, we think this is excellent training for an entirely new generation of bloggers. Long live the hyperlink! [From: Politiken]
