Cyberbullying: Big Than We Think

According to the infographic below, incidents of cyberbullying are increasing at a prodigious rate.

In a recent student technology use survey conduct at L.V. Rogers Secondary, 44% of 553 respondents indicated that they had ‘not learned’ or ‘covered’ online safety, privacy, cyberbullying, and the digital tattoo/footprint. 

If our students are not learning these essential and necessary digital (and lifelong) skills at home, and only about half are receiving exposure at school (to varying degrees), I’m not so sure that we should hope for any dramatic change in the cyberbullying status quo among our youth.
