October is National Bullying Prevention Month
Sameer Hinduja and Justin W. Patchin, experts on cyberbullying, contend that teachers and administrators can play a major part in decreasing and alleviating the effects of technology-based aggression. In Bullying Beyond the Schoolyard, they offer practical advice on how to identify bullies and victims, prevent online harassment, navigate legal concerns, and respond when harmful online behavior occurs. During the four-day online discussion, Hinduja and Patchin will address both the book and their most recent cyberbullying research.
