The National Crime Prevention Council defines cyber-bullying as “the process of using the Internet, cell phones or other devices to send or post text or images intended to hurt or embarrass another person.” http://definitions.uslegal.com/c/cyber-bullying/I would click on the link to show the audience a fantastic definition of Cyber Bullying.http://stopcyberbullying.org/Google Images Cyberbullying‑is‑a‑rising‑issue‑that‑schools‑across‑the‑US‑are‑facing‑these‑dayshttp://seerpress.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Cyberbullying-is-a-rising-issue-that-schools-across-the-US-are-facing-these-days..jpg
Facts about cyber bullyingNearly 42% of children have been bullied online at least once1 in 4 have been bullied more than onceGirls are twice as likely to be bullied online and are twice as likely to bully someone elseApprox. 75% of middle school children have visited a site that bullies another student http://www.dosomething.org/tipsandtools/11-facts-about-cyber-bullying“This study [Cyberbullying Research Center] surveyed a random sample of 4441 youth between the ages of 10 and 18 from a large school district in the southern United States. Data were collected in February of 2010 from 37 different schools.” They found that the cell phone was the most popular piece of technology and that 83% used one at least once a week . . . Approximately 20% of the students in our sample report experiencing cyberbullying in their lifetimes. When asked about specific types of cyberbullying in the previous 30 days, mean or hurtful comments (13.7%) and rumors spread (12.9%) online continue to be among the most commonly-cited. Seventeen percent of the sample reported being cyberbullied in one or more of the nine types reported, two or more times over the course of the previous 30 days.”http://cyberbullying.us/research.phpGoogle Images cyberbullying‑pictures‑51.jpg http://lindaruppe.vhomesre.com/files/2010/11/cyberbullying-pictures-51.jpg

There are many ways that children and adults cyber bully. Some children might text their friends and spread lies and rumors about someone. They might set up a Web site and invite their friends to vote for the ugliest person or the fattest person. They might send mean or demeaning messages constantly to the person they are bullying. If they have compromising pictures of the person, they might send it out over the internet to everyone they know. If they have someone’s password, they can mess up accounts, use their accounts for illegal activity—the ways a cyber bully can mess up a person’s life is almost endless.http://www.isafe.org/channels/sub.php?ch=op&sub_id=media_cyber_bullyingGoogle Images (Left to right) cyberbully2.jpghttp://captaincollo.blogspot.com/2009/07/cyber-bullying.htmlGoogle Images Cyber‑Bullying‑in‑School‑300x http://www.arabic2english.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/Cyber-Bullying-in-School-300x225.jpgGoogle Images miley‑sexting.jpg http://www.justhustlin.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/miley-sexting.jpg
The most frequent forms of online and in-school bullying involved name-calling or insults, and the online incidents most typically took place through instant messaging. Repeated school-based bullying experiences increased the likelihood of repeated cyberbullying more than the use of any particular electronic communication tool, with about two-thirds of cyberbullying victims reported knowing their perpetrators, and half of them knowing the bully from school, the study says.

Sexting. I felt we needed a little levity here. But this is a serious issue.“A recent survey found that 20 percent of teens ages 13–19 had sent or posted nude or semi-nude images or videos of themselves, according to the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, a Washington, D.C.-based advocacy group.” SLJ Article about Sexting: http://www.schoollibraryjournal.com/article/CA6664187.htmlGoogle Images SEXTING.gif http://blogs.trb.com/news/opinion/chanlowe/blog/SEXTING.gif
Victim’s react in a variety of ways. They might just ignore the problem and hope it goes away. Or they might try to get back at the one who is cyber bullying them, if they know who it is. Many start skipping school, stay away from their friends and not participate in any family or school activities. Most will experience a myriad of negative feelings both about themselves and about the world in general.http://www.ncpc.org/cyberbullyingGoogle ImagesCyber‑bullying.jpghttp://thediablodispatch.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Cyber-bullying.jpg
Some potential reasons why children cyber bully:Easy access to social networks—Itis so easy for children to join sites like MySpace, Facebook and Twitter. There are children under the age of 13 who have opened accounts and even some parents who have signed up their underage children.Anonymity—some children feel emboldened because they don’t have to use their own names and mistakenly assume they are safe because of it.Emotional Disconnect—misunderstandings can arise between people because of the lack of facial expressions, vocal nuances or gestures. Desire for popularity or power—being popular or having power over someone else can provide some of the same feelings as illegal substances.Friends encourage them to do it—again it’s the need to be liked or popularCan’t see the consequences—childrensometimes don’t realize that they are going too far. They may think of it as a joke.http://www.ncpc.org/cyberbullyingGoogle Images 3_CyberBullies_Image.jpg http://www.cc-peds.net/promises/archive/autumn_05/images/autumn3_CyberBullies_Images.jpg
What Educators Can Tell Students:The first and best tip is to tell an adult! If it’s happening at school, tell your principle right away. If it happens at home, tell your parents. And keep on telling them until they really listen and respond.If you know a message is from a cyber bully, don’t open it and don’t delete it; the school or police might need it for evidence. Again, tell an adult.http://www.slais.ubc.ca/courses/libr500/04-05-wt2/www/D_Jackson/prevent.htmGoogle Images cyber‑bullying.jpg http://k9webprotection.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/cyber-bullying.jpg
How Can Children Prevent Cyber Bullying? The best thing kids can do is not to participate in the cyber bullying and tell their friends not to either. They should let a parent, teacher or principle know what is happening. If possible, they should block any text messages or emails from the cyber bully. Kids have the power to change the internet environment in their school, home and community. It’s up to parents, schools and the local community to teach children good digital citizenship. We’ll be discussing digital citizenship more later in the presentation. http://www.slais.ubc.ca/courses/libr500/04-05-wt2/www/D_Jackson/prevent.htmGoogle Image stop_cyber_bullying_poster http://jsusmerano13.files.wordpress.com/2010/08/stop_cyber_bullying_poster_s2ht.jpg
Tips to Protect Your Children Online:One of the best things a parent can do is put the computer or laptop in an open area like the family room or kitchen as opposed to letting the child keep it in their room. Parents need to encourage their children to talk about what they are doing on the internet—to talk about what Web sites the children are visiting; what games they are playing; what social networks the children are using. Parents need to set boundaries. Let the children know exactly what they can and can’t do or where they can or can’t go on the internet and then enforce the rules. Rules without discipline don’t work. Children need to learn that there are consequences to their actions. Make sure you and your children don’t have descriptive usernames and passwords—for instance, LoverBoy16 or SurferGirl15. These types of names attract pedophiles. And make sure your kids know not to ever give their passwords to anyone, not even their BFFs (Best Friends Forever). Parents need to really stress this. Don’t let them share any personal information like cell phone numbers or address unless you approve it.http://www.slais.ubc.ca/courses/libr500/04-05-wt2/www/D_Jackson/parents.htmGoogle Image tinameier2_narrowweb__http://www.cyberbullyalert.com/blog/tag/cyber-bullying/
Information to Give to Parents: If you think your child might be the victim of cyber bullying—Talk to your child! Let them know that you want to help. Don’t accuse your child! Be a sympathetic listener. Let your child know that it isn’t their fault that this happened. Be proud that they spoke up and shared their experience with you. Write down details. Be proactive! Talk to the school or local police about the incident. Follow up with your child to make sure that the bullying has stopped. And most importantly, reassure your child that they are safe. Make sure your children know what to do to protect themselves on the internet.http://www.stopcyberbullying.org/prevention/parents_role.htmlGoogle Images t1larg‑cyber‑bullying‑gi2.jpghttp://www.newburyport-today.com/2011/04/11/cyberbullying/
“As of June 2007, 35 states have enacted antibullying legislation that aims to protect the safety of 77% of U.S. students enrolled in public schools. However, only 16 of those states have enacted statutes that incorporate comprehensive basic public health antibullying principles.” http://www.jahonline.org/article/S1054-139X(07)00422-3/abstractIn Missouri, Governor Blunt signed a bill in 2008, changing the wording in an anti-bullying law that had previously stated that verbal harassment had to be a written note or made by phone. It now includes any type of technology. http://www.ibls.com/internet_law_news_portal_view.aspx?id=2095&s=latestnewsGoogle Images New‑Years‑Law.png http://morichesdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/New-Years-Law.png
Every school should make sure all staff and students knows what cyber bullying is and then establish some expectations (ground rules) and put them in writing. You might consider having the students actively participate in establishing the expectations. Teach the students all about cyber bullying. You could do a program during several character development classes. Lead them in discussions. Encourage them to take a stand against any kind of bullying. And get the parents involved. Create anti-bullying events and activities for students and parents. Respond immediately and appropriately to any bullying incidents. And most importantly, don’t give up if you don’t immediately see a change. http://www.stopbullying.gov/topics/cyberbullying/schools/Google Images fullsize_11.jpgwww.stopbullyingnow.hrsa.govGoogle Images fullsize_11.jpg http://assets0.ordienetworks.com/tmbs/1500242455/full-size_11.jpg
It’s called Digital Citizenship. Instead of constantly trying to block our children from Internet sites or constantly trying to control everything they do on the Internet and over their cell phones, how about teaching them how to use technology correctly and ethically? Many countries believe that children should have freedom of expression with limits. Read Article 13 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. http://www.safekids.com/2010/09/27/digital-citizenship-includes-rights-as-well-as-responsibilities/That doesn’t mean that parents and educators shouldn’t protect children, but teach them about the risks and help them deal with them. The British government’s Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (Ofsted) put out a report. It asked schools to ‘help pupils understand how to manage risk; to provide them with richer learning experiences; and to bridge the gap between systems at school and the more open systems outside school.” http://www.ofsted.gov.uk/Ofsted-home/Publications-and-research/Browse-all-by/Documents-by-type/Thematic-reports/The-safe-use-of-new-technologies“The focus should be on how the technology is used rather than the technology itself.” (A)Way Magazine, January 2010 - Raising a Digital Child, http://www.digitalcitizenship.org/ Google Images change.jpg http://edtechvision.org/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/change.jpg
From the moment a child picks up a piece of technology, we as parents and educators need to teach them how to use it properly and ethically. And then we need to set the example. That means teaching them to respect copyright and fair use laws. That means we make sure they are crediting photographs used. That means not downloading music and movies illegally. As educators, we can’t demand that a student do everything ethically if we won’t.(A)Way Magazine, January 2010 - Raising a Digital Child, http://www.digitalcitizenship.org/Google Images digital_citizenship.png http://internetsavvy.wikispaces.com/file/view/digital_citizenship.png
Our Goal as Educators and Parents: To help become ethical digital citizens, and to make sure they are aware of any possible issues related to the use of technology. We need to teach students the responsible use of all technology. We need to reinforce the lessons by showing and discussing inappropriate and appropriate use of technology. Teach students to cite things properly. Parents and teachers must be role models for students. When children see parents and teachers misusing any technology, they will think it is okay to do so.http://www.digitalcitizenship.net/uploads/1stLL.pdfGoogle Imagesdigital+citizen.jpghttp://2.bp.blogspot.com/_QTlkFb5Grc4/Sm8sFlSuDDI/AAAAAAAAAIM/qJ_H3ICzWWg/s1600-h/digital+citizen.jpg
