Cyberbullying – Let’s Fight It Together

Safer Children in a Digital World reported on the nature and effects of cyberbulling.  This powerful video produced by Childnet and the now-defunct Department for Children, Schools and Families shows:

  • some of the differences between cyberbullying and conventional bullying
  • the effects of cyberbullying on the person being bullied
  • how technology is used – abused – in cyberbullying.


How could you use this video in your Primary or Secondary classroom?

To learn more about cyberbullying and how to address it if it happens, read Cyberbullying: A Whole School Community Issue by Digizen.  It provides guidance on practical steps you can take.

Our earlier post on Combating cyberbullying looks at ways we can preempt cyberbullying by raising awareness of the issue in the Primary or Secondary classroom.
