Description of Contents
Children and young people living in current time have grown up in a world which shows a great difference from that of most adults. Many young people go through the Internet and mobile phone as a positive, productive and creative part of the activities and enhancement of their identities, always on and always there. All in all, information communication technologies support social activity which allows the young to feel connected to their peers. As mobile phone and Internet use become gradually common, so has the misuse of this technology to bully. The research conducted recently illustrates that cyberbullying is a feature of many young people’s lives. One study implemented for the Anti- Bullying figured out the fact that 22% of young people reported being the target of cyberbullying. This document gives information about how cyberbullying is different from other kinds of bullying, how to respond and combat misuse via a shared responsibility and how to promote and develop a culture of confident technology users to support innovation, e-safety and digital literacy skills.
The research is really instructive in that it gives information about the problem itself such as its definition. It is really practical because it gives many advices to the young people, their carers and school staff so that they can have more information about the matter of cyberbullying. It also useful because it shows some ways to prevent this problem.
