|By Allison Orr|
The Australian Communications and Media Authority has recently launched a new comprehensive teaching resource on Cyberbullying called Let’s Fight It Together. It includes a seven minute film and a user guide with lesson plans for teachers and tips for parents, and it will be available free to all schools in Australia. The film depicts the story of a teenager who becomes the target of bullying via the Internet and mobile phone. The film shows a number of ways in which cyberbullying can occur and details on how to identify, prevent and respond to cyberbullying incidents.
The resource is designed to help young people, their parents and teachers to better understand the issues surrounding cyberbullying.
