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
Using the internet to disseminate distasteful comments about other people.
Where I've seen it happen
Mostly on TV when they talk about Donald Trump!
What I think happens leading up to, during, and after cyberbullying
Leading up to: lack of empathy or critical thinking. During: lack of self-esteem and cyberbullying makes them feel better about themselves. After: more cyberbullying!
How can I create a safer space
Don’t empower the cyberbully. Tell them to stop.
What resources I use for cyberbullying in my community
Not a lot. Some self-esteem workshops but not really for kids.
