  20. 20.  Over  the  past  couple  of  decades  teachers   have  been  very  successful  in  their  work   to  prevent  bullying  and  daLng  violence.              Teachers  can  apply  many  of  those  same   lessons  to  prevenLng  cyberbullying  if   they  understand  the  culture  in  which  it   takes  place.

  42. 42. EffecLve  digital  educaLon  does  this:   Gives  kids  an  acLo n  plan  for  what  to   do  if  they   see  online  abuse.  • How  to  block,  delete  and  call  out  harmful  comments  and  contributors.  • How  to  record  evidence  of  bullying  through  screenshots  and  print  outs  •   Who  to  tell?  Parents,  teachers  or  law  enforcement?  
  43. 43. EffecLve  digital  educaLon  does  this:   Dives  deep  into  issues  about  privacy  and   reputaon.  • Everything  leaves  a  digital  footprint.  Nothing  online  is  private.  Kids  must  be  their  own  first  line  of  defense.  • What  are  you  sharing?  Help  kids  figure  out  which  informaLon  should  remain  private  online.  •   Who  are  you  sharing  it  with?  Teach  kids  to  consider  the  nature  of  their  different  relaLonships  and  adjust  their  privacy  sehngs  accordingly.  
  44. 44. EffecLve  digital  educaLon  does  this:   d  responsibility  in  the  Gives  kids  ownership  of  an connected  world.      • The  digital  world  is  their  world,  so  how  are  they  going  to  shape  it?  • Focus  on  the  role  of  the  upstander.  True,  the  barriers  to  cruelty  are  lower  online  but  so  are  barriers  to  speaking  up  against  abuse.  Most  cases  of  digital  abuse  happen  without  adult  knowledge.  We  must  prepare  kids  to  monitor  their  digital  world.    
  45. 45. …and  not  this:     Tells  kids  to  escape  digita l  abuse  by  deleLng  or   abandoning  th eir  online  accounts.       Focuses  on  idenLfying  one  perpetrator,  especially  when  it  comes  to  sexLng  or  burnpages  Doles  out  harsh  punishmen ts  for  kids  who  mess   up  
  46. 46. good  resources  for  digital  abuse   prevenLon  •  Common  Sense  Media—If  you  want  a   scaffolded,  standards-­‐based  K-­‐12  curriculum,   look  no  further.      •  MTV’s  A  Thin  Line—This  is  perfect  for  high   school  students  and  young  adults.  Lots  of  cool   interacLve  apps  that  help  kids  tell  their  story.    •  That’s  Not  Cool—Perfect  for  middle  school   students  who  are  learning  how  to  draw  and   defend  digital  boundaries.    
  47. 47. Be  a   role  model          you  can   encourage   kids  to  be   good  digital   ciLzens  no   maXer  what   your   technological   savvy.

  52. 52. All  of  these  describ e  (even  if  the  kids  talk digital  abuse   ing  about  it  don’t  re alize  that)   here’s  what  you  can  do…  
  53. 53. #1.  SAY  IT  “Hey  girls,  I  just  heard    you  say  that  you  were    going  to  make  a  fake  MySpace  page  to  fool    someone  else.”      
  54. 54. #2.  NAME  IT  “…When  you  intenLonally  deceive  someone  it’s  lying  and  it’s  abuse.”  
  55. 55. #3.  STOP  IT  “Abuse  of  any  kind  is  not  OK  in  this  school  and  it’s  not  OK  with  me.”  
  56. 56. SCREEN  FOR  CYBERBULLYING   AT  PARENT  TEACHER   CONFERENCES   How  do  you  feel   about  your  child’s  use   of  social  networks  like   Facebook  and   YouTube?  Do  you   have  any  concerns?  
  57. 57. SCREEN  FOR  CYBERBULLYING   AT  PARENT  TEACHER   CONFERENCES   Has  your  child   experienced  digital   abuse  this  year.    
  58. 58. SCREEN  FOR  CYBERBULLYING   AT  PARENT  TEACHER   CONFERENCES   Would  you  know  what   to  do  and  how  to  get   help  if  your  child   experienced  digital   abuse?
