An Educator's Perspective on Cyberbullying

The Ca.pture Project

A youth-driven digital storytelling program to capture cyberbullying stories from our city and to develop open-source digital skill building activities to empower youth to prevent, navigate and intervene in electronic bullying.

How I define cyerbullying
Attacking another person over the internet
Where I've seen it happen
Lots of news stories. The story about the teen who committed suicide after being bullied online is terrible.
What I think happens leading up to, during, and after cyberbullying
Leading to it I think is other kind of bullying. People don’t stop it and so it just continues but now online. The damage gets worse and worse.
How can I create a safer space
Become an expert and learn where the bullying happens first. Be pro-active. Stop it early.
What resources I use for cyberbullying in my community
Counselling services I think are outdated and don’t really understand cyberbullying and the effects it has on the younger generation.
This project is supported by a grant from CIRA’s Community Investment Program. CIRA’s Community Investment Program gives back by supporting initiatives and programs that help build a better online Canada.
