Bullying in Digital Places: Understanding Generation Mobile
Social media amplifies every aspect of teen life--good and bad. Did you know that the average age for children to receive their first cell phone is 12? At the same time, bullying peaks around middle school years. Widespread mobile device adoption by American youth has elevated cyber bullying concerns as problematic behaviors are hidden from plain sight. How can parents, teachers, and supporting adults help this networked generation? Join Kimberly Cales as she exposes the underlying mechanics of bullying in digital places, clearly defines types of cyber bullying, and provides insight into the actions that youth can take to protect themselves while making a positive impact on their wirelessly connected world.
Cyber Bullying: Essential Elements of Prevention
Cell phone bans and blocking of social sites offer schools some protection from liability, yet these solutions are not enough to address the complexities of bullying online. Cyber bullying often occurs off of school campus, outside of school hours, and on other devices besides school equipment, yet the aggression and embarrassment influence school climate and student performance. How can schools get involved and become agents of positive change in their communities? Join Kimberly Cales as she clarifies legal responsibilities and offers educators effective strategies for cyber bullying prevention.
