Abstract: Cyber-bullying is the use of technologies to harm other people, in a deliberate, repeated, and hostile manner. As it has become more common among young people, legislation and awareness campaigns have arisen to combat it. This session is designed to support teacher educators in enhancing their understanding of anti-bullying education and available online resources appropriate for integration into teacher education curriculum. Participants will collaboratively explore online resources and discuss key strategies for integrating these tools into the classroom.


This session will enable teacher educators to effectively prepare teacher candidates to: 1) Guide their k-12 students to understand how to define and identify cyberbullying 2) Guide their K-12 students to develop plans for meeting the challenges of cyberbullying 3) Introduce online collaborative peace education initiatives and anti-bullying initiatives (national and global) to their students 4) Implement appropriate classroom interventions and strategies in their own classrooms 5) create lesson plans that integrate specific online tools into their classroom.
