Leanne Fitzpatrick's insight:
When we think of bullying, I think I can safely say that we think of teens and even little kids. But the thing is adults are just as susceptible to cyber bullying as we are. This teacher heard about a site where the students could write a review about their teacher. At first she didn't want to look at it. She was afraid about what might be in there. But, like always, the temptation to loom was too strong. She looked and found all of the things that her students were saying about her. What they said is cyber bullying. If they have such a bad opinion about someone then it would be in everyone's best interest if they just keep it to themselves. It doesn't need to be put online. Words can hurt, especially when you can never erase them.

School Tells Girl Bullied for Donating Her Hair to a Cancer Charity to Toughen Up | Digital literacy | Scoop.it
“ After 10-year-old Jetta Fosburg chopped her locks, kids at her Ohio school began harassing her.”
Via Janiece Mondale
Leanne Fitzpatrick's insight:
This girl decided to something that most girls wouldn't want to do. She decided to cut 14 inches off of her hair to donate to a company that makes wigs for girls who have cancer. Instead of getting recognized for it she got bullied for it. They said she wanted to look like a boy. Her mother strongly disagreed and made a Facebook page supporting girls like her. I don't know if it made her feel any better but her mother took a step in the right direction.

Leanne Fitzpatrick's insight:
I think that it is a good thing that we have digital citizenship but there are downsides to it. Cyber bullying happens all the time online and it needs to come to a stop. It is a serious thing and can lead to bad decisions.
