Why You Should Talk to Kids About Cyberbullying [INFOGRAPHIC]

Why You Should Talk to Kids About Cyberbullying [INFOGRAPHIC] | ICT in Middle School | Scoop.it

Almost one in four of teens claimed to be a target of cyberbullying and two-thirds of all teens have witnessed cruel behavior online, notes the Teen Internet Behavior study.

But only one in 10 parents are aware that their teens could be targets of cyberbullying.

In this situation, cyber bullying, I would stand up when if I get bullied on the internet. I agree with is articles information. Facebook is one of the largest social websites and is the most common place for cyber bullying. I truly believe that bullying face to face is the most common type of bullying. When people meet together, the bullys can make fun of your fashion or the way you look. While on the internet, it is more of a mental break down. I don't agree that one in ten parents know that their child is being cyber bullied because some parents check on their childs account and see if anything is ok and there is no cyber bullying.
Anna Kate Alford's comment, January 31, 2013 9:42 AM
I agree with you, Johnny. I'm pretty sure that more than "one in ten" parents know that their child has been cyber-bullied. Since tecnology is changing rapidly, maybe soon the only form of bullying will be cyber-bullying. The only thing I disagree about was that Facebook has the most cyber-bullying. I believe that the most cyber-bullying comes from text messages since the victims is the only one to read it. Standing up to the bully on the Internet is good, but not as good as standing up in real life. Also, any type of bullying is bad, and I think that all bullying is equally bad. I hope you enjoyed this article.

Ghosts of War

Ghosts of War | ICT in Middle School | Scoop.it
The remarkable pictures show scenes from France today with atmospheric photographs taken in the same place during the war superimposed on top.

 

In this fastinating set of images, Dutch artist and historian Jo Teeuwisse merges her passions literally by superimposing World War II photographs on to modern pictures of the where the photos were originally taken.  This serves as a reminder that places are rich with history; to understand the geography of a place, one must also know it's history (and vice versa).

Cam E's curator insight, February 27, 2014 11:26 AM

I'm not even sure what to say about this set of pictures exactly, except that they're a very cool way to see history. I'm interesting in Social Studies and history because I'm captivated by seeing the world framed in a story, and these images do just that. To see the same places where the war was fought and what has changed is great, but these photos also give the impression of some stories of war. The idea of them being "ghosts" gives the impression of something left behind which marks the land even to this day.

Samuel D'Amore's curator insight, September 10, 2014 2:56 PM

Very interesting, I've seen similar things done with Russian cities and parts of the Ukaranian country side.

Wilmine Merlain's curator insight, December 18, 2014 2:47 PM

This Dutch historian does a great job at interweaving places that were ridden by the second world war to its modern reconstruct. As a child, I use to question a lot what a place looked like prior to it being destroyed. In the context of Europe a continent, ridden by war, the historian not only does a great job at depicting past and present, her photographs also show how the country's government went to great lengths to preserve some of its land's historic sites.
