Cut and paste does not cut it

I am reasonably annoyed…

I have been reviewing some senior students DT portfolios and am finding some do not know how to write correctly, or worse,  cannot compose an original thought. In some subjects I note that students just open a document and literally reword paragraphs directly into a corresponding Word document – and gain Achieved or better. Students are trying the same tactic for constructing DT portfolios but they fail to link the material to their own learning or life experiences. The result is a set of irrelevant and unrelated paragraphs – reworded so they make no sense whatsoever! Depressing really, but probably no different to when I was at school. Difference is, these students may well  go on to being a University challenge.
