A New Bully – The Cyberbully


  • Dissect the different technologies that are available to students and describe ways that they can use those technologies to bully or harass other students.
  • Utilize a wide range of instructional methods and strategies to promote knowledge of the effects of cyberbullying.
  • Identify appropriate instructional interventions and activities for the classroom.


Bullies have always existed, so why is it important to address cyber-bullying? In a nutshell, it can be extremely detrimental to the victim’s physical and mental health and, in some cases, possibly deadly. Since cyber-bullying allows the anonymity of bullying from a distance, it can also be easily hidden from parents, friends and school administrators and adds an almost invisible dimension to the traditional face-to-face bullying that can be hard to detect and address. A primary goal of this course requires that teachers will learn various techniques that they can implement upon return to their classrooms. Additionally, teachers will reflect on what they are learning and propose a way to integrate cyber-bullying content into the classroom curriculum. This course is appropriate for all K-12 school professionals.
