Cyberbullying in the 21st Century Classroom

Cyberbullying is an issue that effects all members of the 21st century learning environment. Students struggle with peer interactions that allow communication 24/7, whether positive or negative. Educators struggle to keep up with ever-changing social networks and manage behaviors that are happening outside of the school day. Parents struggle with allowing students to participate in online networks while teaching them to be safe and smart digital consumers and producers. Fortunately, there are a great number of resources available to guide educators and parents to creating a new generation of smart digital citizens.

Check out this VoiceThread I created to address the topic and its effect on 21st century learners, and my DIIGO list of resources I collected while researching. Digital communication can open doors for students, and with the right instruction they can see the internet as a bully free zone!
