Northshore hosts cyberbullying workshop
October 27, 2008 · Updated 3:14 PM
As more students use computers, Web sites and cell phones, bullying has taken a step into the electronic age. Parents are invited to learn how to prevent their child from being a cyberbully or the victim of one in a free workshop from 7-9 p.m. Nov. 5 in Room 60 at the Northshore School District Administrative Center, 3330 Monte Villa Parkway, Bothell. No child care provided. Pre-registration required at www.nsd.org
One study showed that 32 percent of all teenagers who use the Internet say that they have been targets of a range of annoying and potentially menacing online behaviors. Unlike traditional bullying, cyberbullying continues off school grounds and outside the school day. What can parents, administrators and teachers do? Find out from Shelby Reynolds, instructional technology manager with the Northshore School District.
