Cyber Bullying

December 9, 2011

This blog is really about Citizenship education, but at our school we teach Citizenship alongside Learning to Learn and Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE). We combine these into a subject we call Power Up! So this post is really about what we call Personal Power aka PSHE.

During Anti-Bullying Week our students identified cyber-bullying (bullying using the Internet, social networking sites, mobile phones etc), as the most common form of bullying they face, and so we’ve been showing them a great film on cyber bullying in our lessons this week. The film has really caught their attention and led to some very engaged and emotional discussions, so I thought I’d share it. The film is on YouTube and is broken into 6 sections, each 15 minutes long. Here’s the first section, and once you’ve watched it, you can find the link to the subsequent sections.

Our Year 9 students have been making Citizenship films, and some of them have also been on the theme of bullying. Here’s one I particularly like.
