I wanted to share information about a new free resource from Common Sense Media - Cyberbullying Toolkit for Educators - that offers engaging lesson plans and easy-to-use parent engagement resources – all organized by grade level. The toolkit also includes an engaging video designed to get educators thinking about the role they can play in stopping cyberbullying in its tracks.

In addition, Common Sense Media has a free, research-based, comprehensive K-12 Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum.

Please share with the community any other resources you have found to be helpful in addressing this very real issue or any concerns and questions.

The webinar will be Wednesday, January 25, 2012 from 6:30-7:30pm EST. The archive of the recording is available for download.

Just got an email from Education Week Teacher Book Club - thought some of you might be interested in joining the conversation.

Advocacy groups have designated October as National Bullying Prevention Month, and education organizations from across the country are getting involved by disseminating information and promoting anti-bullying curricula. Here at Education Week Teacher, we're holding our Teacher Book Club October 25-28 with Sameer Hinduja and Justin W. Patchin, authors of Bullying Beyond the Schoolyard: Preventing and Responding to Cyberbullying. For more information on Bullying Beyond the Schoolyard, read our Book Backgrounder.

The Ohio Resource Center has pulled together a great group of resources:

Help students understand and combat bullying.

From ORC: Stop the Bullying in Life and in Young Adult Literature.

From Verizon Thinkfinity:

Here are a couple more resources from PBS and Teacher's Domain:

October is National Bullying Prevention Month where education empowers communities to address a challenging topic. Students can stop cyber-bullying by not responding, saving the evidence, and reporting it (Cyber-bullying). And teachers can help build awareness with literacy resources like "Bullying," new self-paced student lesson that examines bullying's impact on society. 

Really good post from Edutopia; Bullying Prevention: Tips for Teachers, Principals, and Parents http://soc.li/s83L0ua

Another good resource on this topic from the Afterschool Alliance.


I just came across the infographic of cyberbullying - http://mat.usc.edu/school-bullying-outbreak-infographic/

Just saw this post from the NYT - An updated collection of resources on a topic regularly in the news for the past two years. More than just cyberbullying.http://learning.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/04/05/on-bullying-resources-...
