Cyber Bullying Defined

Primary Research
Two surveys were conducted to see the effects of cyber bullying on Oakland University's campus
The expected result was that those who were cyber bullied in high school would continue to be cyber bullied in college
The two surveys only differed by two questions
Females vs Males
27 females participated

10 males participated
All that answered yes were girls!
86% cyber bullied for an extended period of time
Age at which victims were cyber bullied
Ages coincide with middle and high school
Do you know someone that is a victim?
Did you report the cyber bullying?
Are you a cyber bully?
All girls... again
Girls use the internet to bully
Guys use the traditional method

Highest age bullied at was 17 therefore..
Cyber bullying is not a pressing issue on Oakland University's campus

Studies more effective at middle and
high schools

Wireless internets
Oakland University's internet for dorms and student apartments
Wireless Internet defined:

Wi-Fi is “a wireless local-area network (LAN) uses radio waves to connect devices such as laptops to the Internet and to a business network and its applications” (Cisco)
How does it work?
"A computer's wireless adapter translates data into a radio signal and transmits it using an antenna” then “A wireless router receives the signal and decodes it. The router sends the information to the Internet using a physical, wired Ethernet connection” (Brain, Wilson & Johnson)
In order to gain information on making changes to the internet at Oakland University, I conducted a survey that was taken by students who attend Oakland University. The survey allowed me to find out how students actually feel about the internet. I had 30 Oakland University students take my survey over the time period of a month. The age of the students taking the survey is between 18 to 21 years old.
What upsets you most about the internet at Oakland University?
Ways to improve the internet at Oakland University
Increasing the server size
Increasing the internet speed
Having more access points to the internet
Public Hotspots
While connected to a public hotspot, “Every request from a device goes via an access point, and only then reaches the sites that users want to visit” (Public wifi hotspots)
“Global public WiFi hotspot numbers are set to grow from 1.3 million in 2011, to 5.8 million by 2015, marking a 350% increase in just four years” (Wireless Broadband Connection)
Many public places provide complimentary wifi for free or have it to purchase too.
Wifi is availiable at most restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, airports, etc.
Hacking wifi servers video
Logging into public wifi causes easier way to get hacked
Hackers can access you account information from banks, social medias, etc. while being logged on
How Wifi connection works
Being connected to wifi helps use less data usage on your cell phone
Why allow wifi in schools?

Wifi in the universities and colleges, able to access things faster
Wifi in the elementary, middle and high schools, students are able to use it to participate in online activities
A high school says it helped improve their graduation rate
Learning levels improved by doing online activities
