Cyberbullying is about more than insulting others online. There are different types of offenses, different types of laws to be broken, and different defenses to those laws. Likewise, there are different ways to prevent online bullying and be positive role models for good social media use. You will spend this week exploring these and making a plan for a project to show what you have learned and find a way to pass this learning on to another audience.

Tuesday – Wednesday: First, we’ll take a look at some cyberbullying in the news through my scoop.it collection. Next, we’ll go over the civil and criminal issues regarding cyberbullying and look at some case studies.
The Cyberbullying research center has several resources to help students deal with cyberbullying and that may help you develop your project.

Friday: Work on your passion project. Be sure to provide an update, and begin thinking about your presentation as your final in this class.
