Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This study focuses on students’ sharing of learning materials via SNS: the scope of the phenomenon, what, when, why and how material is shared. Based on a representative sample of 205 Israeli teenagers, sharing learning materials is common practice. Students recognize the advantages of shared materials (higher grades, peers' support) but also struggle with dilemmas with regards to it (feelings of exploitation or inadequacy or conflicts regarding cheating).
