Cyberbullying – What can you do?

June 6th - Kendal

  • Consider some of the issues
  • Look at range of resources
  • Consider why this happens
  • Some ideas to use / try in school
Cyberbullying is not a recognised concept.
  • Young people do not tend to use the term and there are strong norms towards “seeing the joke” where online behaviour is concerned.
  • Ippr – behind the screen: The hidden life of youth online
but over 1 3 are worried about cyberbullying on social networks

Plenty of resources.....

  • 811,000 google hits for cyberbullying
Young people feel relatively free from consequence.
  • “It depends who it is. If it’s your enemy, you cuss ‘em down and they cuss you back, but if it’s just like your girlfriend or something you just like chat.”

The Byron Review
  • “It’s easier to say horrible stuff about people on the internet. It got really horrible in Year 10. Lots of people were being bullied over the internet. It gets brought into school. When friends do this, it’s horrible. It makes you really upset. You don’t want to go into school again...”

  • Lesson plans
Provide a stimulus for discussion
  • Why is this not acceptable?
  • So why do people still do it?
  • What can we do?
  • Make the link between on and offline as strong as possible – constantly reinforce....
  • Think before you post....
what about teachers
What about teachers?
  • Teacher baiting
  • Rate my teacher
  • Hate sites
  • Fake profiles
  • Etc.
I had no idea that it would upset him so much.
  • It was just a laugh.
  • We didn’t realise that so many people would see.
  • I just put it up there, others sent it around...
positive uses
Positive uses?

“I'm in the 7th grade. I'm 13. I'm not a cheerleader. I'm not the president of the student body. Or captain of the debate team. I'm not the prettiest girl in my class. I'm not the most popular girl in my class. I'm just a kid. I'm a little shy. And it's really hard in this school to impress people enough to be your friend if you're not any of those things. But I go on these really great vacations with my parents between Christmas and New Year's every year. And I take pictures of places we go. And I write about those places. And I post this on my Xanga. Because I think if kids in school read what I have to say and how I say it, they'll want to be my friend.”
