Safer Internet Centres have developed various educational resources and awareness-raising videos aimed at helping teachers, parents and carers, and children and young people, to discover the online world safely. A selection of resources touching on the issue of cyberbullying are detailed below:
The First Aid App aims to support cyberbullying victims, assuring them that they are not alone and pointing to quick and efficient sources of help in the services were the bullying happened (such as delete and report buttons).
A poster resource for older children that explains cyberbullying and what to do in order to protect yourself.
A resource aiming to empower young people to tackle cyber bullying in their communities. This resource contains ten lesson plans on cyberbullying and is designed to be delivered in the classroom, including an innovative interactive poster activity.
A set of flyers containing information and recommendations for children, parents and teachers about cyberbullying. Topics covered include a definition of cyberbullying, forms and places of cyberbullying, how to deal with cases of cyberbullying, and recommendations of how to help children who experience bullying or those who bully others.
