People think it’s a harmless joke: Exploring cyber bullying

This pack on cyber bullying is based on research conducted by Dr Lucy Betts (Department of Psychology, Nottingham Trent University) and is written in collaboration with Howard Lincoln. It contains a set of lesson plans and resources that are designed to support secondary school students in exploring their understanding of cyber bullying. The aim of the resources is to increase students’ knowledge and understanding of the nature of cyber bullying so that they are better equipped to cope when they experience it.
The pack contains lesson plans, student materials and teacher support materials for three lessons:

  1. Profile of a cyber bully, examines the methods used to carry out bullying and the motivations of the cyber bully.
  2. Protect yourself, encourages students to think about how they can act to protect themselves both as a victim and witness to bullying.
  3. Cyber bullying hurts, helps students to explore how cyber bullying impacts on the lives of those it affects.
