Good Video Lessons About Cyberbullying and Digital Privacy

Students in my school district, like students in many other school districts, have more unsupervised time on their hands than ever before. That factor combined with the general "cooped up" feeling that many are having as a result of measures prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community has led to an increase in cyberbullying this fall. In response to that I spent some time on Wednesday talking to my students about cyberbullying, how to spot it, and how to respond to it. I also made them watch this Planet Nutshell video about stopping cyberbullying. 

I've featured the Planet Nutshell NetSafe series in the past. For those who haven't seen it, it's a series of eighteen videos for K-12 students. There are videos specifically for elementary school and specifically for middle school and high school students. The videos cover topics like preventing cyberbullying, digital privacy, and the dangers of distracted driving. The videos were produced by Planet Nutshell in collaboration with the Utah Education Network. A few of the videos from the NetSafe series are embedded below.

I appreciate that the video includes a brief explanation of the effects of cyberbullying on students who are bullied online. The video also encourages students to be supportive of those bullied without using retaliatory behavior towards the bully.
