Teachers TV: Bullied: Cyber-bullying

Bullying affects almost every school, but it no longer stops at the school gates.

Cyber-bullying is a particularly pernicious new form of bullying that takes place over the internet, by email and in text messages. Bullied is a series of assembly starters for secondary and primary students that features interviews with young people who have been bullied.

In Bullied: Cyber-bullying, a 14 year-old girl describes how a few nasty text messages rapidly became something much worse for her, causing her to suffer severe depression and attempt suicide. For teachers, this short film could prompt questions including: Have you ever known anyone who has been cyber-bullied? What does cyber-bullying mean to you? How would you help prevent or stop bullying by text message, or on instant messaging or internet sites?
