• Cyberbullying

    Cyberbullying is a relatively new form of violence.  It is the sending or posting of harmful, threatening, or cruel text or images using the Internet or other digital communication devices (cyberbullying.org).  It is emerging as one of the more challenging issues facing educators and parents as young people embrace the Internet and other mobile communication technologies.


    Internet Super Heroes uses 5 age-specific superheroes (e.g., X-Men, Spider Man, etc.) to educate young children about Internet safety and cyberbullying.  Other resources for educators stress online safety in school.
