The Drama! Teen Conflict, Gossip, and Bullying in Networked Publics

 

While teenage conflict is nothing new, today’s gossip, jokes, and arguments often play out through social media like Formspring, Twitter, and Facebook.

 

Although adults often refer to these practices with the language of “bullying,” teens are more likely to refer to the resultant skirmishes and their digital traces as “drama.” Drama is a performative set of actions distinct from bullying, gossip, and relational aggression, incorporating elements of them but also operating quite distinctly.

Dieses Projekt möchte mithilfe einer Online-Befragung zum Thema "Ich, du, wir - wie gehen wir miteinander um?" innerhalb der Klasse oder Jahrgangsstufe dem Thema Mobbing in der Schule auf die Spur kommen: Wie gehen Schülerinnen und Schüler miteinander um, gibt es gar Fälle von Mobbing auch an unserer Schule?

 

Auf Grundlage der durch die Schülerinnen und Schüler selbst erhobenen anonymen Daten kann die Situation in der Klasse analysiert werden.

 

Anschließend werden Maßnahmen vorgeschlagen, die einen guten Umgang miteinander sichern und somit Mobbing verhindern helfen oder aber bestehende Mobbingprozesse beenden.

What to do if your child's being bullied

What to do if your child's being bullied | Cyberbullying, it's not a game! It's your Life!!! | Scoop.it

Tips and useful websites that can help...

Tell your child that bullying is not acceptable behaviour and that you will do what you can to get the bullying to stop.


Listen to your child's fears, reassure your child that it is not their fault and that this is not something that they will face alone.
Let them know that you will help them.
Don't pressurise them to talk to you.


Give them ideas of who else they could talk to - a relative, a teacher, your GP or ChildLine on tel: 0800 1111.
Help them build up their confidence.
Praise and encourage them.
Talk to his/her teacher and try to work with the school on tackling the problem.
Keep a bullying report - keep records and written details of incidents and if known, the names of perpetrators.
Do not accept that repeated verbal abuse is teasing and not bullying - the important difference to note is whether it is distressing your child.
Ensure that the school take action and follow up each key step until you are satisfied.
Finally, keep notes of meetings, copies of letters and record details of phone calls.

Cyberbullying grief highlighted instead...

 

Parents who think their tearaway hacking kiddies are seeing all sorts of things they shouldn't online are buying into some of the top myths about children on the web, according to a new report.

 

EU Kids Online, a research project based at the London School of Economics and Political Science, talked to kids across Europe about their online habits and discovered that they are both more and less clued up than their parents reckon.

Adults are gradually coming to realize the compromises to their privacy in social media.

 

Adults are gradually coming to realize the compromises to their privacy in social media. Younger people, with a love of congregating and communicating, are less prepared to anticipate pitfalls in online messaging. It’s a trend that can leave them open to bullying.


While Nova Scotia has set up a task force to address cyberbullying, a program is circulating in an effort to instil prevention in the classroom directly through students.


Aggression expressed online has made headlines lately, with reports of young people driven to suicide after having been subjected relentlessly to online attacks.
