12-year-old boy who was victim of bullying attack dies after weeks in hospital | Cyberbullying | Scoop.it
PHILADELPHIA -- A young boy who was the victim of bullying has died, according to his family. Bailey O'Neill, who turned 12 on Saturday, was in a coma after suffering several seizures.

 

Bailey's family says he was jumped by two classmates during recess at Darby Township School last January and suffered a concussion as well as a broken nose as a result.  He then began to suffer seizures the next day, forcing doctors to put him into a medically induced coma. Joy Fecanin, the boy's grandmother, told NBC10's Katy Zachry that he had to have a blood transfusion after getting pneumonia.

Empathy, communication, student leaders key to tackling cyberbullying

Empathy, communication, student leaders key to tackling cyberbullying | Cyberbullying | Scoop.it

In schools, that means working harder to cultivate a “culture of empathy” that extends beyond classrooms into cyberspace, he said, because technology makes it easier to factor conscience and morals out of communications. School systems that have experienced the greatest success in establishing a sense of “collectiveness” do so by enlisting students to lead the effort, he said.

 

Empathy must extend to those accused of cyberbullying. Because adolescents have yet to fully develop coping mechanisms for dealing with frustration, anger or jealousy, society must guard against scapegoating those accused of cyberbullying.

This is an interesting look at what could be done to prevent cyberbullying. If someone gets so upset, and takes it out on others online, they have no repercussion.  Legislature was recently passed to hold people accountable for this actions.  A school in Maine is even forcing students to use the internet through their online profiles, which can be easily tracked by the school district.  This is a great way of preventing the issue, but it certainly doesn't change the person.  It does a good job of showing people that their actions are detrimental as well.  The article states that adolescents have a hard time with coping mechanisms because they are still so immature in nature.  A separate paper I read on a different site quoted a 15 year old boy that said he only cyberbullied someone because it was a response to being cyberbullied the week before.  This mentality makes since for someone that age, and really shows where the source of the problem can lie.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, April 19, 2013 3:16 PM

Bullying can affect everyone—those who are bullied, those who bully, and those who witness bullying and is linked to many negative outcomes. Take children's complaints of bullying seriously, whether at school, on the playground, in the park, on the Internet. Probing a seemingly minor complaint may uncover more severe grievances. Children are often afraid or ashamed to tell anyone that they have been bullied, so listen to their complaints!

How MTV & Digital Games (Angry Birds) Are Helping Kids Learn About Cyberbullying | Cyberbullying | Scoop.it

"It is essential to teach digital literacies, including cyber citizenship in school; however, few schools do, and so much of children’s experience with digital media is gained outside the classroom – which is why it’s so exciting to see MTV team up with the widely popular game “Angry Birds” to raise awareness about cyberbullying."

MTV teams up with the popular game "Angry Birds" to help raise awareness to children and teens who play this game. Games control children's behaviors so this commercial can make children do something that can't be taught in real life. The media is mostly viewed outside the classroom when students are searching the Internet or playing with apps on their technological devices.
