Teachers TV: Combating Cyberbullying

Cyberbullying is increasingly recognised as one of the most pernicious threats to primary and secondary pupils and their teachers. This programme features some great lesson ideas designed to highlight the impact of cyberbullying on children and demonstrate how they can easily become cyberbullies, whether they mean to or not. At Bradon Forest School in Swindon, a PSHE lesson is used to stage a courtroom drama with the ‘accused’ charged with posting a picture without consent. The school also shows how the issues are being raised across the curriculum by creating storyboards in ICT and role plays in drama. At neighbouring St Mary’s C of E Primary, children are asked to come up with mini dramas while another class creates a cyber charter which lists all their rights and responsibilities when using new technologies. There is also advice on where teachers, parents and pupils can find help in preventing and dealing with cyberbullying from Childnet Education Manager, Ellen Ferguson.
