Understanding Cyberbullying

 

1.3 FORMS THAT CYBERBULLYING CAN TAKE

 

1.3.1Cyberbullying takes different forms, some of which are harder to detect or less obviously associated with bullying than others. Schools should already have policies and practices in place for dealing with some of these.

 

Threats and intimidation

1.3.2Serious threats can be sent to both staff and pupils by mobile phone, email, via comments on websites, social networking sites or message boards.

 

Harassment or stalking

1.3.3Repeated, prolonged, unwanted texting, whether it is explicitly offensive or not, is a form of harassment. Online stalking (sometimes referred to as ‘cyberstalking’), where a person’s online activities are constantly monitored, can cause psychological harm and fear. Previously safe and enjoyable environments can be experienced as threatening, and online activity may become a source of anxiety.

Stand up to Cyberbullying

Cyberbullying: a serious problem, but not an epidemic | SafeKids.com | Cyberbullying, it's not a game! It's your Life!!! | Scoop.it

This is an updated version of post that first appeared on SafeKids.com in 2009.

by Larry Magid

 

I’m glad that media outlets and public officials are shining a light on cyberbullying and bullying in general. It’s important to pay attention to this serious problem, but we need to keep it in perspective. As bad as it is, cyberbullying is not an epidemic and it’s not killing our children.

 

Yes, it’s probably one of the more widespread youth risks on the Internet and yes there are some well publicized horrific cases of cyberbullying victims who have committed suicide, but let’s look at this in context.

Fighting cyber-bullying in the classroom
Your students have to deal with bullying in ways that you couldn't even have imagined at their age. Today's digital natives are so firmly entrenched in the world of social media and online interactions that cyber-bullying can feel as real to them as the note-passing and cruel whispers felt by your generation.

 

And cyber-bullying can have terrifying effects on your students' happiness and emotional wellbeing. Highly publicized suicides like those of Phoebe Prince, Megan Meier and others drive home the threat for parents and educators alike.

 

Talking to your students about cyber-bullying can be a little intimidating—technology is one of those areas where we keenly feel our "uncoolness." Do we know all the latest terms? Are we going to do more harm than good? This article will educate you about cyber-bullying and discuss some classroom strategies to help your students overcome the urge to bully as well as the urge to cover up bullying.

Cyberbullying occurs when new technologies like the internet or mobile phones are used to bully a person or a group of people. Like other types of bullying it is meant to hurt, humiliate or make the victim feel small.
