Your one-stop place for bullying resources, whether it is cyberbullying or face to face, this site is loaded with examples, advice, videos, and more. Click the tabs on the top menu to choose from various topics such as Prevention and Resources. Be sure to see Outside Resources for a list of links to other recommend sites about bullying. The videos on this site, under kids, specifically would be a great way to show students the varying types of bullying, and how to recognize it in school or at home. The site is primarily geared towards Elementary students as Middle Schoolers most likely will not be attracted to the cartoon approach this site takes, but it would benefit an Elementary classroom.

A Spanish version of this entire site is available with a click from the Home page.

This site contains all of the information that educators and parents need to know about keeping kids safe online. It contains games, resources, publications and links to help teach students about internet safety and cyber bullying. Click on the link for parents, tweens, kids, educators, or teens. The site challenges students to learn about the rules of cyber world and find their inner superhero. This site provides wonderful information to educators on a variety of "cyber" topics. For students to fully use this site, they must register (via snail mail). However, many of the informational links are available online with no registration required. Please note the link to their safe search engine was broken at the time of this review, but there were links to other safe search engines. In addition, the site of the week seems to be from 2005. Even so, there is a lot of useful information available at this site for students, teachers, and parents.

This portal site is loaded with links, information, and resources to use in your classroom to teach about this timely issue. Although it is a Canadian affiliated site, information applies to all youth around the world. Highlights of this site include fact sheets, examples, resources, and more. Especially take note of the first fact sheet in the "What Can Be Done" section, which shows you how to be a sleuth in figuring out who is doing the anonymous cyberbullying. Fact sheets require Acrobat Reader. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

In the Classroom

This is a great site for computer teachers (and regular education teachers) to share with their students and parents. Please review the "What Can Be Done" section with students. Cut and paste, then laminate the rules into small posters to be hung near all computers. Create a notebook of cyberbullying facts, and include the fact sheets at this site. Be sure to share the link with parents and your PTO/PTA, as well.
