15 Strategies Educators Can Use to Stop Cyberbullying | Cyberbullying | Scoop.it

"The advent of technology has brought with it familiar problems in new forms. Yet cyberbullying is unique in many ways. What makes cyberbullying so different than in-person bullying? As educators, we need to be specifically aware of cyberbullying. Why is it so important to address cyberbullying in schools first? The Center for Safe and Responsible Internet Use, argues that two thirds of school violence begins through social media. Cyberbullying can lead to school failure, psychological implications, depression, violence and illegal activity."

Drew Bulbuk's curator insight, June 25, 2013 8:50 PM

This article provided a lot of insight on why people act the way they do online.  One stat that jumped out to me was that in 81% of violent incidents, someone other than the attacker knew something was going to happen, but did nothing to stop it.  That leads me to believe that while online anger may seem like fantasy, it doesn't stop there.  Being in a position to help someone in person and not doing so would be far less common than online, because it seems surreal.  The article also states that younger generations relate to one another online much easier because they can provide the person that they truly want to be.  It also mentions that there usually isn't parental interaction when a young adult is saying inappropriate things online.  This goes back to properly raising children in the first place, and gives me an idea as to why a child would be empowered to hurt others.
