Children made aware of Cyber Bullying

Posted by Admin on December 22, 2008

I saw this story in one of the local papers in the UK about Cyber Bullying. A group of BTEC students has gone round some local schools to give them the message – “block, delete, escape, report, decline”.

The group was given a £2,000 budget to create the roadshow. Performer Nick Kidd said: “I played one of the central characters in the production. It was hard work but the message seemed to go out loud and clear making it a very rewarding experience.”

You can read more about it here.

I know that text bullying is a big issue and a number of operators are looking into it. The Irish Times recently did a piece on it as the Irish government has started to look at the issue much more closely. Also, the Norweigan operator Telenor has introduced a new system with the help of Anam.
