Introduction

Can you identify a cyberbully and be prepared to take the bully out of Cyberbully? Learn some ways to protect yourself online. 


Key Vocabulary:

Bullying: a form of aggressive behavior manifested by the use of force or coercion to affect others, particularly when the behavior is habitual and involves an imbalance of power.

Cyberbullying: bullying that takes place using electronic technology. Electronic technology includes devices and equipment such as cell phones, computers, and tablets as well as communication tools including social media sites, text messages, chat, and websites.


Steps:
 

1. Watch video above by Emma

2. Next watch this one by Ricardo about "Making Fun of Others Online" also from Common Sense Media.

3. Discuss in your class or with a friend, and then make a list of the types of things which are hurtful that:

  1. pre-teens and teens tell each other in person;
  2. things they tell to someone else about someone; and
  3. things they post online or text. Use specific examples for these.

4. Were your examples different in the three lists?

5. In your classroom with your teacher or an adult at home, share your list and the examples. Discuss why you think this happens and positive ways you can deal with these types of situations. 

An additional resource: Cyberbullying: What it is and how to stop it

6. Write down 3 or more things which you could do if this happened to you, and/or how you could help a friend if something like in the videos happens to them.
