Cyberbullying: What's Different, and What's Not, about Meanness Online

Cyberbullying: What's Different, and What's Not, about Meanness Online | Cyber Bullying | Scoop.it

"We think there's some room for more qualitative research on anti-cyberbullying implementation: what are districts doing and how do kids make sense of it? I have a particular interest in how schools and kids are adapting well researched anti-bullying guidelines that were developed in a pre-Internet era. For instance, adults encourage kids to 'take the audience of a bully away.' That makes sense when you can get up from a cafeteria table where someone is getting picked on, but how do you "take the audience away" when the teasing goes online?"

What you Should Know about Bullying

What you Should Know about Bullying | Cyber Bullying | Scoop.it

Bullying has long been a practice much disdained by parents and now penalized by the force of law. Literally speaking bullying means to purposefully hurt somebody either by words or actions. Bullying can be caused by individuals as well as by groups. Schools are  the old  haven of this kind of behavior and are still.  There are several efforts to stop bullying in our schools and protect our kids but we still need to do much more.

Giving Teachers Tools to Stop Bullying: Free Training Toolkit Now Available | ED.gov Blog

Giving Teachers Tools to Stop Bullying: Free Training Toolkit Now Available | ED.gov Blog | Cyber Bullying | Scoop.it

Over the past three years, at our annual Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention Summits, we have heard the same call by educators-– teachers want to help stop bullying, but they don’t know how. Most try to help, but few receive training on how to do so. There are bullying prevention trainings available for teachers, but many are very expensive or not based on the best available research.

 

That is why the Department of Education and its Safe and Supportive Technical Assistance Center, set out to create a free, state-of-the-art training for classroom teachers on bullying. The two-part training aims to help teachers know the best practices to stop bullying on the spot and how to stop it before it starts. The training toolkit consists of PowerPoints, trainer guides, handouts, and feedback forms that school districts, schools, and teachers can use free of charge. Both the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers gave feedback on the modules and made suggestions on what teachers would find most useful.

 

The research-based training gives teachers practical steps to take to respond to bullying. These skills include how to deescalate a situation, find out what happened, and support all of the students involved. The training also shows the importance of building strong relationships in the classroom, as well as creating an environment respectful of diversity, in order to prevent bullying.
