Jaclyn Wagoner's insight:

Cyberbullying is a serious thing that needs to be dwelt with in a serious manner. It should not be looked at as once you leave the school its not the schools problem because it could affect how the student works in class and how they interact with their peers.

Katie Chung's curator insight, December 9, 2013 1:45 AM

In today's society, our students are immersed in a culture filled with technology and have become so dependent on it. With the growing use of technology by children, cyberbullying has been a growing issue especially in the past several years. Bullying is not merely physical: children are being verbally attacked through harsh comments made about them online. Bullying doesn't end at school and follows many students home. Cyberbullying is growing because bullies are able to hide their identity and say whatever they want. Since cyberbullying has been growing in the past several years, I believe that students should learn about cyberbullying in schools and what they can do to prevent it. Technology is an excellent tool that plays an essential part of our lives each and every day, but we must remind ourselves that there are people out their who manipulate it to worsen the lives of others. By teaching students to be more cautious about how they use technology and tech them practical ways to deal with cyberbullies, I believe that we can be one step closer to bringing bullying to an end.

Jaclyn Wagoner's insight:

This is an interesting take on providing syllabuses and showing the focus of the class. The teacher believes that if youre provided with a syllabus the focus is on teaching but if you have a class decide what would be said on a syllabus if there was one the focus would be on learning. Where in a class the focus should be.
