One of the greatest threats to student safety online is cyberbullying—the digital harassment of students by other students. Nearly 15% of students ages 12–18 have reported being bullied online, which doesn’t include the significant estimate of students who experience cyberbullying but choose not to report. Cyberbullying is an incredibly harmful experience, and students who are digitally harassed are afflicted with suicidal thoughts more often than they are with traditional bullying.
To help you combat cyberbullying in schools and protect students online, the Gaggle Cyberbullying Playbook—newly updated for 2020—is now available. Protecting students from digital harassment is a critical part of supporting positive mental health and promoting academic success. In this eBook, you will learn about some of the ways students experience cyberbullying, preventative measures that parents, schools, and districts can take against cyberbullying, and how you can prepare yourself and react when cyberbullying occurs in your school or district.
Cyberbullying is a reality of the modern digital classroom, but with the right tools and resources, you can help protect students from digital harassment and reduce future occurrences. Download the Cyberbullying Playbook to learn the answers to all of your questions about cyberbullying and protecting students online.
