While adults often understand the hurt that is typically caused by physical bullying, many of them either underestimate or do not realize the far-reaching and potentially devastating impact that cyberbullying can have on a victim. Because cyberbullying occurs online, often under the guise of anonymity, it can be especially vicious and intimidating. And, because it can be "witnessed" by scores of online spectators and perpetrated 24/7, the impact is far-reaching and victims often feel they have nowhere to hide.

In part 1 of this 2-part series, join Brent Maguire as he provides an overview of what cyberbullying is and how it occurs. He will discuss the various forms of cyberbullying and how it differs from "traditional" bullying. He will also explore the impact of cyberbullying and some of the challenges it presents.

Students should know there are rules for being on the internet. As an educator, it is my responsibility to be proactive and know what is going on with students. I will support school board policy for bullying by letting students know it is not acceptable. There are many stages; flaming, harassment,denigration, impersonation, acting and trickery. With each stage students become more and more involved in this practice. However today,cyberbullies can be traced so therefore, it is good to be proactive and take action against this evil.

Good overview - some examples were dated. I wish he would have gone into specific apps that the kids are using.

I learned from this webinar, especially with the new ruling how text messaging affected a young man to commit suicide this recent week. This time a young woman was sentenced to prison because of her text messaging into encouraging someone to commit suicide.

Informative and I picked up a few new things, but I've heard most of this before. I appreciated his experience dealing with bullying in schools, and encouraging action for teachers to take.
