Cyberbullying and more…

Fresh from graduation and with an idealized perspective on the criticality of technology integration in the classroom, I am faced with the harsh reality that issues like cyberbullying are still a prime concern. Moreover, it seems to be on the rise. In speaking with parents of teenage children I am appalled by stories of cyberbullying, sexting and other acts of disrespect among today’s teens.

In answer to this, I am going to explore (in future posts) not only ways to stop the spread of cyberbullying and how to protect children and teens from becoming victims but also what to do in the event that you are already a victim. There is a lot of readily available information on the former points, but relatively little on the latter. What is the emotional fall-out? How can teens recover? What lessons are learned from those that have recovered?

Stay tuned for more on this topic in the coming weeks and months…
