Description

Technology is always developing, and new apps are constantly being created. With the rise of technology, cyberbullying is becoming more and more of a risk in the schools. Cyberbullying is becoming the new way to bully because they are more comfortable saying things behind a screen that they are not comfortable saying in person. Cyberbullying is starting as low as third grade. For example, over 90% of third graders play online games, and 35% of them own a cell phone.

Cyberbullying is most common in middle school, through social media apps such as; Snapchat, Instragram, or Twitter. Parents in grades 3rd through 12th grade will be contacted via permission slip seeking permission for their child to complete a brief online survey. The students' will select from a provided list of common responses to how one would respond to being cyberbullied. They will then rate how effectively their responses to being cyberbullied helped stopped the bullying. It is hypothesized that that the acts of being cyberbullied will begin to occur at a younger age than previously reported. In addition, we predict that the students will indicate the intervention being utilized are not as effective as intended.
