This course has been designed for everyone from Parents, Teachers, Adults, to Youth alike. We generally use the term “online mistreatment” when referring to “cyberbullying”.
Online peer mistreatment is something that we cannot eradicate, however as with all peer mistreatment we can assist the one being hurt, we can help prevent, we can reduce the harm and hopefully we can reduce the number of students who are doing the harm.
We are all, both young and old, navigating a new digital culture. Rules and social norms are often ambiguous. It is our social responsibility to understand, take ownership and, personal responsibility for ourselves and those around us so that we can all stay safe.
