WHAT IS CYBERBULLYING?

Cyberbullying, the use of technology to harass, threaten, embarrass, or target another person, is an unfortunate byproduct of digital communication. Although it’s usually easy to spot—a text message or social network post appears threatening or cruel, for example—sometimes it can also be less obvious. A bully might impersonate a someone online, for example, even opening a fake account for the purpose of posting harmful information about another.

According to a  Pew Research Center report:

  • 59% of U.S teens have been bullied or harassed online.

  • 42% of teens say they have been called offensive names online.

  • 90% believe online harassment is a problem.

  • Most young people believe teachers, social media companies and politicians are failing at tackling this issue.

It is important to be knowledgeable about this behavior and vigilant in teaching young people how to spot and report it. Hopefully the resources below can help!

THE BEST CYBERBULLYING PREVENTION?  EDUCATION

We believe in equipping students with the skills and knowledge to know what to do if and when they are treated cruelly (or observe another person being treated cruelly) online or off.

That's why our comprehensive Cyber Civics curriculum includes several lessons that address cyberbullying, such as:

  • Hiding Behind a Screen

  • Real People, Real Feelings

  • What is Cyberbullying? Digital Drama?

  • Be Upstanding

  • What If You Are the Target?

  • You Are the Words You Use

  • And more...

Ask us try a Cyber Civics lesson at home or in your school.
