  • 4. DefiniRon  by  Apple  DicRonary  Photo  by  Lieven  Soete  (Flickr)  bulŸly  (noun)  A  person  who  uses  strength  or  power  to  harm  or  inRmidate  those  who  are  weaker  (verb)  Use  superior  strength  or  influence  to  inRmidate  (someone),  typically  to  force  him  or  her  to  do  what  one  wants  
  • 5. “Cyberbullying  …  can  be  defined  as  an  aggressive,  intenRonal  act  carried  out  by  a  group  or  individual,  using  electronic  forms  of  contact,  repeatedly  and  over  Rme  against  a  vicRm  who  cannot  easily  defend  him  or  herself.    Cyberbullying  is  a  form  of  bullying  which  has  in  recent  years  become  more  apparent,  as  the  use  of  electronic  devices  such  as  computers  and  mobile  phones  by  young  people  has  increased.”  (Smith,  Mahdavi,  Carvahlo  &  Tippef,  2006)  
  • 6. When  we  first  get  on…  We  do  not  know  which  way  to  go  Photo  by  violinha  (Flickr)  
  • 7. When  we  first  join  the  online  community…  Photo  by  Peter  Renshaw  (Flickr)  …we  begin  our  journey  on  a  long  and  unknown  path  
  • 8. We  have  a  bright  outlook  Ready  to  explore  this  whole  new  digital  world  Not  sure  of  what  is  waiRng  for  you,  but  you  face  it  anyways  Photo  by  puuikibeach  (Flickr)  
  • 9. Photo  by  Ed  Yourdon  (Flickr)  We  are  able  to  travel  across  the  globe  through  cyberspace    Without  ever  having  to  leave  our  seats  
  • 10. With  so  many  sites  to  go  on  and  so  many  things  to  do,  the  internet  seems  like  a  wonderful  place   And  with  all  these  people  to  talk  to  and  share  your  ideas  and  opinions,  this  seems  like  a  no  lose  kind  of  place  Photo  by  USAG  Vicenza  (Flickr)  
  • 11. But there are unseendangers lurking online…
  • 12. Sadly,  there  are  a  lot  of  rude  individuals  online  who  do  not  share  your  opinions  and  will  afack  anyone  who  do  not  share  theirs.  Photo  by  Jack  Fussell  
  • 13. For  a  while  you  can  go  to  the  world  from  your  seat,  the  world  can  afack  you  at  your  seat  No  one  is  truly  safe  online  
  • 14. 2 surveys done of students11 – 16 years of age, for atotal of 533 pupils, revealedthat incidents ofcyberbullying were “lessfrequent than traditionalbullying, but appreciable, andreported more outside ofschool than inside.”(Smith, Mahdavi, Carvalho,Fisher, Russell & Tippett,2008)
  • 15. StaRsRcally  speaking,  Kowalski  tells  us  that,  “in  a  naRonwide  survey  of  more  than  63000  childern  in  5th  through  8th  grade  conducted  by  i-­‐SAFE  America,  30%  said  they  had  said  mean  or  hurlul  things  to  another  person  online,  with  3%  saying  they  did  so  omen.    Conversely,  from  a  pool  of  approximately  20700  students,  30%  of  the  respondents  said  that  someone  had  said  mean,  hurlul  things  to  them  online.(Kowalski,  Limber  &  Agatston,2008)  
  • 16. “Thirty-four percent of the respondents in theYoung Canadians in a Wired World surveyreported having been bullied, with 74% ofthese being bullied at school and 27% beingbullied over the Internet” (Wing, 2005)(Smith, Mahdavi, Carvalho, Fisher, Russell &Tippett, 2008)  
  • 17. According  to  the  arRcle  enRtled  “From  bullying  to  relaRonships:  Mapping  out  online  communicaRons”,  those  who  are  being  bullied  are  from  all  different  walks  of  life,  from  varying  social  status  groups  and  in  some  cases  are  friends  of  the  vicRms.      (Magazine  of  Psychology  &  Sociology,  2013)    
  • 18. While  most  would  think  cyberbullying  is  to  be  blamed  on  simply  allowing  bullies  access  to  the  Internet,  we  need  to  realize  that  someRmes  the  Internet  can  bring  out  the  worst  in  us;  all  that  freedom  can  make  us  think  there  is  nothing  that  can  stop  us,  so  if  there  is  a  person  we  do  not  like  we  can  afack  them  with  hurlul  comments  and  we  ourselves  then  become  the  bullies.  
  • 19. This  is  a  serious  concept  to  consider,  we  must  be  able  to  understand  we  are  not  completely  free  online,  we  cannot  say  and  do  whatever  we  wish,  we  must  learn  our  limitaRons  to  allow  other  to  have  a  safe  Rme  online,  without  the  fear  of  cyberbullying  
  • 20. How  Can  We  Help  Them?  Recently  the  Government  of  Ontario  has  enacted  Bill  14  –  AnR-­‐Bullying  Act,  2012  which,  “Requires  all  school  boards  to  take  preventaRve  measures  against  bullying,  issue  tougher  consequences  for  bullying  and  support  students  who  want  to  promote  understanding  and  respect  for  all.”    (www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/parents/bullying.pdf)    
  • 21. Kids  Help  Phone  “Kids  Help  Phone  (1-­‐800-­‐668-­‐6868)  is  Canada’s  only  free,  naRonal,  bilingual,  confidenRal  and  anonymous,  24  hour  telephone  and  online  consoling  service  for  kids  and  teens.”    (www.kidshelpphone.ca)  
  • 22. In  conclusion,  I  have  learned  working  on  this  presentaRon  that,  although  the  Internet  is  a  wonderful  tool,  we  must  learn  how  to  properly  use  it.  We  cannot  simply  afack  others  online.  We  should  accept  their  differences  and  move  on  with  our  own  lives  and  leave  others  in  peace  so  they  can  enjoy  their  own  online  experiences.
