Researchers: Cyberbullying Not as Widespread, Common as Believed  
View comments Comments (1) | Print page Print |

Is cyberbullying the demon we're led to believe? Well, new research suggests that it may not be as bad as we think. Cyberbullying is rightly a concern for schools and a topic that INTERFACE monitors very closely. Clearly, no bullying is acceptable and I'm not suggesting we take our eye off the ball. However, this new study does offer some new insights and statistics, among them that despite kids' increasing access to technology "there has been no systematic increase in cyberbullying".

Here's a report on these fascinating results – or check out the original discussion paper:

Researchers: Cyberbullying Not as Widespread, Common as Believed

While parents may spend more time worrying about their kids being terrorized by text, tweet, Facebook, or Formspring, new research suggests that cyberbullying "is a low-prevalence phenomenon, which has not increased over time and has not created many 'new' victims and bullies, that is, children and youth who are not also involved in some form of traditional bullying."

The research, presented here this week at the American Psychological Association convention, involved 450,490 students in 1,349 American schools surveyed between 2007 and 2010 and another 9,000 Norwegian students at 41 schools. It was intended to dispel some of the myths and misconceptions about cyberbullying.

I’d wear a floral dress with a utility jacket for a feminine yet casual look.
