Teachers Around the World Reveal Classroom Strategies to Combat Cyberbullying

Share Article

C.M. Rubin (Author of The Global Search for Education and Founder of CMRubinWorld) talks with educators about Internet techniques to combat cyberbullying and foster global citizenship.

According to an Ipsos/Reuters poll, more than ten percent of parents around the world say their child has been cyberbullied and nearly one-fourth know a youngster who has been a victim. Another recent global study by the OECD/PISA of approximately 540,000 students in 72 countries clearly showed that over the last decade, student well-being has seriously declined and that the most distressing threat to student well-being is bullying due to the serious consequences for the victim, the bully and the bystanders.

The Global Teacher Bloggers are pioneers and innovators in fields such as technology integration, mathematics coaching, special needs education, science instruction, and gender equity. They have founded schools, written curricula, and led classrooms in 13 different countries that stretch across every populated continent on earth. These teachers empower and enrich the lives of young people from nearly every background imaginable.

“While we may not understand the fascination with the SnapChat dog-face filter, we should look for opportunities to have our kids teach us the ins and outs of a platform while we play the role of student,” says Carl Hooker. “We have formed a Cyber Congress in our school which consists of School Leader, Teacher members, Student members and Parents as members. The objective is to keep a watch on the Internet and to be safe,” notes Rashmi Kathuria, a teacher in India for over 22 years. Nadia Lopez stresses that when “children are taught to honor themselves, have compassion and be respectful of others, they will become global citizens who are productive and add value to this world.”
