  11. 11. Cyber Bullying (cont.) • Cyber bullying is bullying. It has all the characteristics of traditional, real-life bullying. However, it is also very different from traditional bullying. It is different because: – It is done using all different kinds of technological tools. – It can help make the one who bullies anonymous, invisible, hidden. – It can make it very hard for targets to find a safe, protected place to get away from the bullying since they often have 24hour access to technology. – There is the potential for many more bystanders than with traditional bullying. – It is both immediate and long lasting. It can happen with the click of a button and potentially never go away. – It can spread farther and faster than even the person doing the bullying is aware. – It can be very subtle and harder for both students and adults to recognize. This also makes it harder to refuse. Sources: Steps to Respect Anti-Bullying Curriculum .
