Send It! Text It! Will You Regret It? Understanding Cyberbullying

Send It! Text It! Will You Regret It? Understanding Cyberbullying is a poster session presented by students at Todd County Middle School who were participants in a 1:1 iPad environment. Across all grade levels technology was being successfully implemented, but after numerous technology violations it became evident that students were not aware of the consequences of their actions or responsibilities while online. Students at Todd County Middle developed the idea of creating a digital curriculum that focused on resources students and teachers could use to become responsible, respectful and safe digital citizens. The first steps of their program was the creation of an ePub to be used on the iPads and iPods, which included links, videos, lesson ideas, and information on cyberbullying. This is a resource available on iTunesU and loaded on all school iDevices for students and teachers grades K-12.
