Transcript of Cyberbullying
2nd period Cyber Bullying What is Cyber Bullying? Is it a Problem For Central? Statistics What Can We Do? (cont.) What Can We Do? References Who has been affected? Cyber bullying is the use of the internet and other related technologies to intentionally harm other people. This is a problem worldwide and has caused numerous child suicides and several anti-bullying campaigns to form. Because more children have access to cell phones and social networks, cyber bullying has become a big problem with kids as young as 8. Schools are doing everything they can to stop the harrassment for a more peaceful environment. In past years, cyber bullying over Facebook and Twitter has been the cause of several fights on school grounds at Central. In many of the cases, a simple comment on someone's status or picture was taken the wrong way. This caused an argument online, which later affected how the people treated each other in person. Over the internet, there are no facial expressions or different tones of voice, so it's easy to mistake a sarcastic remark for an insult meant to degrade the person.
* One possible way to prevent future cyber bullying is to teach students at a young age how to respond to cyber bullying. Students as young as 7 or 8 have access to social networks and may receive or deliver harassment to others. The easiest solution is to ignore it. If the bully doesn't see a reaction, they may get bored and stop. Another way is to involve a parent or trusted adult, because sometimes ignoring the problem will allow it to continue and escalate, potentially damaging the victim's life forever. http://cyberbullying.us/blog/should-cities-have-a-cyberbullying-ordinance.html: Should Cities Have a Cyberbullying Ordinance? by Justin W.

Cyberpredators by James P. Colt, Ed.D, 2011 Megan Meier Nearly 43% of kids have been bullied online. Girls are twice as likely as boys to be involved in cyber bullying. 75% have insulted another student online More than 80% of teens use a cell phone regularly, making this the most common way to slander other students. Boys are more likely than girls to post insulting pictures or videos online. About 1 in 5 teens have posted or sent sexually suggestive or naked pictures of themselves to others. 58% of victims have not told a parent or trusted adult about something hurtful that happened to them online. Another way to stop the online abuse is to involve school administrators. While they may not have authority when incidents take place off ground, teachers and principals can arrange meetings with parents to resolve the matter calmly and voluntarily. School administrators are also setting up guidelines to determine what should be considered cyber bullying. Megan Meier committed suicide when she was 13 after being cyber bullied over MySpace. A classmate had created a false account and had pretended to be her friend on MySpace, but later turned against her. Meier was found 21 minutes later, dead and hung in her closet.
