Soren Andrews's curator insight, May 12, 2014 2:09 PM

This article was really useful because it explained the side effects of bullying. It was a sophisticated article and it was hard to read so be careful. The last three paragraphs were especially useful and explained most of the information. It met most of the criteria and had a recommended site with the full explanation.

Fernanda Antezana's curator insight, May 14, 2014 4:26 PM

I think this website is great because it tells the reader and it is better if the reader is a bully but if it isnt it doesntatter because it teaches the effect of bullying. That makes me think that it will make peoples life much much harder.

Cyberbullying: 5 Steps to Combating & Documenting

Cyberbullying: 5 Steps to Combating & Documenting | Cyberbullying, it's not a game! It's your Life!!! | Scoop.it

While starting a new school year can be exciting and fun, it can also be tough for children of any age — dealing with new teachers and new students, and continuing the friendships (and rivalries) that they formed during the previous year. But these days it’s even more difficult for students as school dynamics and drama have a significant presence online, essentially coming home with the child through digital devices and social media.

 

Cyberbullying is probably the most threatening issue that children face when they’re online, and social networks play a significant role in the severity of this issue. For the same advantageous reasons that make social media a great tool to help victims of cyberbullying, it can also be used to perpetrate cyberbullying, especially among teens. According to the Teen Internet Behavior study that was conducted by McAfee, “Almost one in four teens claimed to be a target of cyberbullying and two-thirds of all teens have witnessed cruel behavior online”.

Teen Anti Cyber Bully Campaign Goes Viral

Teen Anti Cyber Bully Campaign Goes Viral | Cyberbullying, it's not a game! It's your Life!!! | Scoop.it

OSSEO, MN-- Seventeen-year-old Kevin Curwick, an Osseo High School football team captain, is using Twitter to fight cyber bullies and compliment his classmates, but much to his surprise, now people across the world are returning the favor.

 

"A nice word can go a long ways," he said. "We are a society looking for the positive."

 

Curwick has heard from people from Iowa to Connecticut, and from Australia to England ever since he came forward behind the anonymous Twitter account, @OsseoNiceThings.

 

He created the "nice" Twitter account to lift spirits of classmates that had been bullied on another Twitter page, but remained anonymous when tweeting things like "great artist but even better friend", "Osseo's rawest rapper", and "puts others before herself."

Stephanie Nicole's curator insight, November 24, 2014 12:48 AM

"A nice word can go a long way," 17-year old Kevin Curwick says after he creates am annonymous Twitter account that contains compliments to all the other kids in his high school.

 

It is encouraging to see that a student is the one stepping up to prevent bullying from happening at his school. It only takes one person to initiate something for everyone to join in on. It is more beneficial coming from a classmate because others can relate to him more. The Twitter is easy for the Osseo High School students to access because the account targets them directly.

10 Incredibly Simple Things You Should Be Doing To Protect Your Privacy

 

Please tell me you have a password protecting this.

Over the weekend, I wound up at Washington, D.C.’s Trapeze School with a group of friends. Before one of them headed up a ladder to attempt a somersault landing from the trapeze bar, she handed me her phone and asked me to take photos. “What’s the password?” I asked. “I don’t use one,” she replied. My jaw dropped as it often does when someone I know tells me they’re choosing not to take one of the very simplest steps for privacy protection, allowing anyone to snoop through their phone with the greatest of ease, to see whichever messages, photos, and sensitive apps they please.
