How the internet is used for bullying, and what kids can do to protect themselves.
For many kids, the internet is an important part of their daily routine. Unfortunately, with the immediacy of the internet, its anonymity, and its easy accessibility, kids are using instant messaging, blogs, e-mail, chat rooms, and social networks to spread gossip and rumors to harass and embarrass their peers. In this program, students will come to understand that using the internet for those purposes is actually bullying. True to life scenarios demonstrate practical ways for students to protect themselves and restrict the opportunities others have of harassing them online.
