Ctrl + Alt + Delete Cyberbullying
Last week, you blogged about why social media should be allowed in schools. Many school districts across the country ban social media because they consider it a distraction to student learning, but also because of cyberbullying. This week, we are going to have an honest and candid conversation about cyberbullying.
In this week’s post, I’d like you to reflect upon your personal experiences regarding cyberbullying. Below are several questions to help guide you through this post. Feel free to go beyond these questions and share your perspective on this topic.
1. Based on your experiences and observations, how big of a problem is cyberbullying?
2. How often do you see acts of cyberbullying? Daily? Weekly?
3. On which social networks does cyberbullying most often occur?
4. How would you describe the type of person who engages in acts of cyberbullying?
5. Have you ever taken a stance against a cyberbully and try to make him/her stop?
6. If you have ever stood up to a cyberbully, what did you do, and what were the results?
7. Why do you think teens cyberbully each other and do you think it will ever stop?
The video below highlights what cyberbullying is, but more importantly, how it can be put to an end. What are your thoughts on how your generation can work together to delete cyberbullying?
