  • Session 11: Consultation and Collaboration With Educators and Parents

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. learn teachers’ perspectives in their preparedness to address and intervene with cyberbullying at school, including a review of the research and findings from the authors’ preliminary investigation.
  2. learn recommendations and best practices for school-based practitioners in preventing and addressing cyberbullying and how to help teachers feel more prepared to address this need in their school.
  3. gain an overview of teachers’ perspectives of phone use and cyberbullying in schools, including a review of the research and findings from the authors’ preliminary investigation.

Description

Cybervictimization and phone use are common issues in today’s schools, yet little work has investigated how prepared teachers feel in addressing or managing these concerns in their classrooms. The current study will provide an overview of teachers’ perspectives and preparedness to address cyberbullying at school and how school phone policies may relate to cyber-victimization. Recommendations and best practices for school-based practitioners in addressing cyber victimization in a digital era will be discussed.
