Phone a friend in exams?

I have just finished reading Chris Betcher’s post on PLC in Sydney where year 9 girls sitting an English test were able to use a phone to search the Internet for an answer as long as they quoted the source. The papers were busy calling this cheating rather than asking the question what’s behind this practice and is it for all tests or just certain types of tests. Chris’s comment is well worth a read.
