Online behaviour and cyberbullying
In this short film for teachers Rhys ap William explains how to help students recognise negative online behaviour.
We can deter poor online behaviour by encouraging good, positive interactions. An example would be to arrange video calls with schools around the world.
A good way to get students to recognise high risk behaviour is to evaluate their own online habits, e.g. by answering a questionnaire.
They also need to recognise the warning signs of trolling. Teachers could organise a class debate on this subject – is it freedom of expression or should it be illegal?
If students are affected by cyberbullying, teach them to limit their exposure to anything harmful and take preventative measures such as password protection, blocking, deleting comments and managing privacy settings.
