This is interesting and the fact it is happening is disconcerting. I  experienced adult cyberbullies, but never students.

Nancy J. Herr's curator insight, April 24, 6:58 AM

Teachers want kids punished. Kids (and their parents) say there's nothing that can be done. What is happening and how can you handle it?

015: Living on the Edge of Chaos: 8th Graders Talk Social Media | Responsible Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it

I love talking to students about social media. When you listen to the podcast you will gain a sense that the students were not sure how to answer some of the questions or perhaps they were not sure how they felt on the topic because they perhaps have not thought this way before.

Really?

Sue Osborne's comment, April 1, 4:15 PM
With young people today I just think "there is no line" - unless THEY don't like what is happening to them, THEN there are lines all over the place!
EdTechSandyK's comment, April 2, 10:16 AM
I agree to an extent, Sue. At some point, though, adults are also failing to pass along ideas of what is and isn't appropriate. Or in some situations they are sadly modeling the bad behavior themselves.
