Cyberbullying: An Ethnographic Case Study of One Australian Upper Primary School Class
Maher, Damian
Youth Studies Australia, v27 n4 p50-57 Dec 2008
The issue of cyberbullying has been reported on widely in the press with extreme cases generally presented as the norm. In this article, the interactions of Australian primary children aged 11 to 12 years are presented to illustrate some bullying practices that young people engage in. The findings suggest that while cyberbullying occurs, it is generally not extreme in nature. Some differences in cyberbullying between girls and boys were found and examined. The article concludes with several recommendations to help minimise and manage cyberbullying.
