For situations in my own life, I now know how to better handle cyber-bullying situations from learning about it in class. I know that everyone can help put a stop to it, and one person can make all the difference.
Yes, I have witnessed cyber-bullying and not done anything about it. I did not take action because I did not know the victim or the people involved. If it had happened again, i might have reported it to someone else who could do something about it.
It is important to take action because it could help save someone’s life and it will definitely help put a stop to cyber-bullying.
For next class please complete the following:
1. Finish your “dial it down map” using Popplet and post a link to it on your Tumblr as well as a link to the article or scenario you selected.
2. In a text post, please reflect on the following:
- How could you apply what you learned in class to…
Have you ever encountered online cruelty? Yes, but I only remember one specific incident.
How do you think someone might feel after being the target of it? I think someone might feel that they were worth nothing, and that they wouldn’t want to live anymore because of all the cruel things people say.
Complete the K (what do you KNOW) and the W (what do you WANT to know) below based on your knowledge of cyber-bullying.
K: I know that there were new laws made about cyber-bullying. Many kids were cyber-bullied and the teachers could not do anything about it because it wasn’t in school, but now the laws ban cyber-bullying and kids have gone to court for it.

L: I have learned how bad cyber-bullying can get and how many negative effects there are of it.
