  2. 2. To access a copy of the presentation “A Parent and Teacher Training Program for Cyberbullying Detection and Interven- tion”, visit http://www.slideshare.net/andymanj/a-parent-and-teacher-training-program-for-cyberbullying-detection-and-intervention (short address—http://bit.ly/bj0smF) A hotlist of the sites and videos included in this presentation as well as the presentation itself are available at http:// www.wallwisher.com/wall/cyberbullyingsites (short address—http://bit.ly/ddEdtS ) Teachers can:  Promote and model safe and ethical use of technology in the classroom and computer lab.  Review the school’s acceptable use policy with students and make them aware of expectation and conse- quences for bullying behavior and misuse of technology.  Just because technology is used to cyberbully, don’t ban students from using it for educational purposes. Productive, safe, and ethical practice in using technology in a safe environment promotes healthier uses of technology beyond school.  Monitor student use of technology at school including computers, cellular/mobile devices, video game de- vices, etc. Don’t rely solely on proxy servers and firewalls. Students can find ways to circumvent these safe- guards.  Incorporate cyberbullying into your content area if possible. Make yourself available as a person your stu- dents can talk to and assure your students that you are there to help them if they are bullied or feel unsafe.  Make sure students are informed of their rights, responsibilities, laws, and available resources.  Be aware. If you overhear students discussing potential cyberbullying situations, don’t ignore it. - If you can’t intervene, at least refer the students to an administrator or guidance counselor. - Discuss the incident or your suspicion with an SRO, counselor, etc. *Remember, by law we are required to report any suspected abuse.  Communicate with parents. Parents need to be made aware if you suspect their child is involved in some way with a cyberbullying situation. That way they can better monitor their child’s interactions outside of school.  Start a cyberbullying education program in your school that includes faculty, parents, and other members of the community. Parents can:  Set rules and limitations for technology use in the home and hold the child accountable for following the rules.  Promote and model safe and ethical use of technology in the home.  Monitor the child’s use of technology including computers, cellular/mobile devices, gaming systems, etc.  Be a good listener and be available to the child as someone they feel comfortable talking to.  Meet your child’s friends and their families or at least ask questions about who the child interacts with online and offline as well as the nature of the interactions.  Report cyberbullying or suspected bullying to the school, authorities, and communication/internet service provider/ website used as the vehicle for bullying. By contacting the communication/internet service provider or website involved, the offender’s account may be suspended or the offender may be banned from contact with the victim.  Communicate with teachers and school administrators. The school is a physical gathering place for students where cyberbullying may manifest itself in other forms such as violence, verbal harassment, etc. School fac- ulty and administrators should be made aware of any incidents so they can be on the lookout for bullying be- havior and ensure the safety of the students.  Participate in school activities and organizations such as the PTSO and establish a network with school em- ployees and other parents. School organizations provide a great foundation for the development of cyberbul- lying education programs as well as watch groups.
