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
When someone bullies someone on the internet
Where I've seen it happen
At old workplace. Everyone posted on company social media and many comments on world issues had racist and sexist innuendo
What I think happens leading up to, during, and after cyberbullying
Who knows what leads up to it?! If someone is a cyberbully, they have a character flaw that needs to get fixed. So afterwards they will likely do more cyberbullying or verbal bullying to other people.
How can I create a safer space
Surround yourself with people who have an open mind. Report the cyberbully.
What resources I use for cyberbullying in my community
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.
