KA1 COURSE

BULLYING AND CYBERBULLYING

 

Course summary

 

 

Nowadays, bullying is a frequent threat to the physical and mental integrity of our students, especially in the teenager years.

This type of school violence is evidenced through a set of aggressive, intentional and repetitive behaviors, individual or collective initiative of students, addressed to one or several other students. The adolescent (or child) is subject to insults, jokes, ridicule, vexatious attitudes, negative nicknames, etc.

However, cyber bullying also begins to make more frequent the use and diffusion of defamatory information in electronic form, through social networks and other means, by an individual or group that intentionally, and repetitively, intends to cause ill-being in another. The vast majority of children and young people have access to the Internet at home, have a computer, tablet or smartphones and are online permanently. Without the monitoring and information of parents and teachers, children become more vulnerable in an extremely complex and dangerous world. Cyber safety and prevention mechanisms can be important tools to reduce the occurrence of these social phenomena.

 

Course objectives
