I have learned a lot of useful information about cyberbullying that I can relate to situations in life. For example, if I ever see cyberbullying taking place, I will be an upstander in some way, and try to stop it. I have witnessed cyberbullying before, but I did not get involved. In this case, if I had gotten involved, the situation would have gotten worse. The two girls who were fighting needed to work out their argument out on their own. If I witnessed a different scenario, and I knew that I could help, I would. It is important to take action to stop cyberbullying, because it is easy for the target to get hurt if the situation gets out of hand.
For next class please complete the following:
1. Finish your “dial it down map” using Popplet and post a link to it on your Tumblr as well as a link to the article or scenario you selected.
2. In a text post, please reflect on the following:
Have you ever encountered online cruelty? Yes, I have.
How do you think someone might feel after being the target of it? They would probably feel very hurt, scared, and have a negative image of themselves.
