What is wrong with a student using resources found through the Internet in
to research a topic. If it was one of us trying to find out information it
would be
given without any criticism. My mentor teacher and I encourage children to
make use of their computers as most of them have access to one. As long as
write the information in their own words, avoiding plagiarism, then it's a
valid vehicle for learning.

Maybe these students are finding it tough to narrow down their research on the
Internet and are looking for some clear and concise info.
I have the same problem sometimes.
