Wow! Insightful Cyber Bullying Video

Cyberbully is an insightful video and raises many important issues that are valuable for students, parents and educators. It is the story of a teenage girl who gets caught up in the online world of cybe rbullying.

Three things that stood out for me were:

  1. The ease with which a situation may become overwhelming/spiral out of control.
  2. The fact that students cannot escape cyber bullying by going home the way that they could escape traditional types of school bullying.
  3. The lack of tools and supports made available for students to deal with issues such as these.

I highly recommend that you watch this video and consider showing it to your students, or using part of it to prompt dialogue about this important issue.
