Nadine Zebib's insight:

Rehtaeh Parson's story is tragic, but hopefully her story has helped take one small step towards ending cyber bullying. An image of her was passed around after she was raped by four men, and she was bullied so much that she felt the need to end her own life. It is stories like Rehteah's that get attention, although the attention came too late for her. Hopefully now, a life can be saved, justice can be found for some, and cyber bullying and trolling can be put to a stop.

Cyber bullying has got to stop

It's not cool!

Nadine Zebib's insight:

Bullying over the internet is not a new concept. Obviously, as long as there has been social networks around, there has been bullying. Recently however, cyber bullying, and 'trolling' have made the news everywhere. Kids commiting suicide over cyber bullying has hit an all time high.

 

An anti-bullying law had to be passed against it. But it's not enough. Everyone must work together in order to stop the bullying.

Cyber bullying has got to end. Of course that's what I already knew, it's what we all know, but it's something important enough that it needs to be said repeatedly until something is done about it. If even one kid is attempting suicide over cyber bullying, it is too many. Rehteah's story is the one that got to me the most. It's disturbing that she had to die over the bullying. I was even more shocked to discover that there were no laws created to help her. Thanks to her though, laws were created to prevent such things from happening in the future. Unfortunately they didn't come soon enough to save her.

 

I did learn about some ways to stop bullying. Safer internet, more intervention from parents and faculty, and stricter laws. Personally, I believe that making sure there is open communication between children and parents is the best way to prevent bullying. Hopefully someday soon we will see cyber bullying and trolling come to an end.

Mom brings anti-bullying dance to Howard Middle tonight - Orlando Sentinel (blog)

Mom brings anti-bullying dance to Howard Middle tonight Orlando Sentinel (blog) Angelique Martinez was shocked and horrified when her daughter, who has been bullied for most of her sixth-grade year at Howard Middle, posted a "goodbye" note on...
Nadine Zebib's insight:

In this blog post, parents and faculty had to step in in order to stop bullying. Luckily for Anelique Martinez, her daughter was saved. I think that it's harder to stop cyber-bullying, or "trolling," because the bullying is done through the internet, and the person can hide miles away. What can be done when someone is hiding behind the keyboard, and behind a username?

Gov. Scott signs new 'cyberbullying' law into effect - WPEC

Gov. Scott signs new 'cyberbullying' law into effect
WPEC
Parents are reacting to a new law that would make it easier for school officials to discipline students for cyber bullying. That law was just signed by Governor Rick Scott yesterday.
Nadine Zebib's insight:

This video discusses the cyber-bullying law and how it will go into affect in schools. Also discusses how to tell if your child is being bullied or cyber-bullied. I think that a law was more than necessary. With people Violentacrez, well...for lack of a better word, 'trolling' the internet - a law definitely needs to go into effect in order to stop bullies and trolls everywhere.

Do BYOD Programs Encourage Bullying?

Do BYOD Programs Encourage Bullying? | What are the effects of trolling and cyber bullying, and how can we stop it? | Scoop.it

"In theory, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs in schools are a great idea; students can use their own tablets, laptops and smartphones in the classroom, and can take advantage of a wider range of apps and programs than they might be able to normally access in school. There is a case to be made that doing so can make schools more cutting edge and capable of engaging students through methods that they're comfortable with. However, there's also a risk that BYOD could lead to bullying and inequality within schools. How, then, can BYOD be successful without causing these kinds of problems?"


Via John Evans
Nadine Zebib's insight:

BYOD, or 'Bring Your Own Device' to school may seem like a good idea, until it leads to bullying and trolling. Not everyone can have the same device, and that leads to bullying. Also, bringing the cyber world into the classroom, a place where most bullying already takes place, doesn't seem like a good idea. Better network security or banning the BYOD program seem like a good way to avoid bullying, cyber-bullying, and trolling all together.

Darlene Clapham K12's curator insight, May 28, 2013 4:58 PM

Interesting article with good points to consider.

Teresa Deshon's curator insight, May 29, 2013 5:37 AM

A way to counter issues related to the differences in the quality of devices in schools is to have a modified BYOD with a range of devices supported by the network that students can choose from. This helps close the gap between what some families can provide economically.

Education is always the key. Banning anything never solves the problem.

School supplies have never looked better!! Seriously, can we bypass summer and head straight for back-to-school shopping?
Nadine Zebib's insight:

A percentage of 1 Direction/Office Depot sales will be given to an anti-bullying educational program. I think this is great, considering the amount of money these 5 boys must have. donating money not only helps raise awareness about anti bullying, but since so many little kids look up to One Direction, they are setting a great example - one that is needed to stop cyber bullying.

Anonymous peer-to-peer communication on the Internet isn't just a handy tool for privacy enthusiasts; it's critical for preserving free speech in the digital world.
Nadine Zebib's insight:

"Critical for preserving free speech in the digital world." After reading up on Freenet, I would say that this could be somewhat of a solution to cyber-bullying or trolling. It is a safe, secure way to browse the internet. In this day and age, that seems like something impossible to do - personally, I had to learn it the hard way with the last project. In order to avoid "trolling" you must learn how to protect yourself. Freenet seems to be way to do this.
