Out With the Old 

Simple crib sheets and whispering in class aren't exactly going the way of the dinosaur, but they are gradually being supplanted by more technologically advanced methods of cheating:

Out: Quick glances or quiet whispers during tests
In: Text messaging on cell phones or the new Nintendo DS

Out: Crib sheets
In: Storing notes and answers in cell phones and graphing calculators

Out: Writing answers on the brim of a cap
In: Self-recording notes on iPods

Out: Paying someone to write your paper
In: Ripping or buying it off the Internet

Out: Leaving a textbook in the bathroom to check answers during a break
In: Running to the computer lab during a potty break to scan the Net
