Cyberbullying: Through the Eyes of Children and Young People
Ackers, Melanie Jane
Educational Psychology in Practice, v28 n2 p141-157 2012
The topic of cyberbullying is raising international debate and concern. Through the development and dissemination of a questionnaire 12 student researchers were supported in surveying 325 UK students across Years 7, 8 and 9 to gain further knowledge of this area, in relation to children and young people. Results were analysed and comparisons made between gender and age, allowing conclusions to be drawn about the area of cyberbullying and its many elements. Conclusions acknowledge that bullying has entered a "digital era" and professionals and adults require the knowledge and skills to help young people to further understand the issues involved and to protect themselves in this area.
