Responding to Online Bullying
Date posted: January 31, 2017
Impact! How to Make a Difference When You Witness Bullying Online is a collection of practical tools to help Grades 7 to 9 students make a difference when they witness cyberbullying. It includes:
- A step-by-step, online interactive decision-making tool that helps students choose effective strategies for intervening in different cyberbullying situations;
- A classroom lesson that supports the decision-making tool, with additional role-playing activities for students;
- A parents’ guide, Helping Our Kids Navigate Cyberbullying, to help parents better support their kids if they’re targets of or witnesses to cyberbullying; and
- A series of printable posters for the classroom that promote low-risk ways of intervening when students witness cyberbullying.
The program was developed using findings from the Young Canadians’ Experiences with Online Bullying study.
