Much of students’ social lives outside of school these days takes place online, through social networking sites. And even though this form of bullying may happen most often after school hours, the impact from online conflicts and negative comments in cyberspace can directly affect a student’s in-school life, including the ability to learn. While cyberbullying is receiving more attention and media coverage these days, school leaders and educators still have few clear-cut guidelines on how to handle it. Should they be monitoring sites like Facebook to police student behavior? Can principals and administrators take disciplinary action against students who misbehave online? When does a cyberbullying situation require school intervention? And how can school leaders create a school culture where bullying is unacceptable among students both in school and online? During this webinar, two nationally-recognized experts on bullying will help educators address these questions and develop strategies for combating bullying and its impact both in schools and online.
This webinar will be moderated by Michelle R. Davis, senior writer, Education Week Digital Directions.
