Cyber-bullying has been in the news this past year and if it hasn’t hit your institution yet, we know from statistical evidence that sometime in the future, it will. Dealing with a cyber-bullying incident will land on your desks, in your emails, show up at your office doors, and take up your time, at some point. What constitutes cyber-bullying? What can you legally do about it? Who is doing it and how are they doing it? What proactive and reactive steps can you take?
Maureen Baron, M.A. Ed. Tech., is a Pedagogical Consultant for the English Montreal School Board, a Lecturer in the Faculty of Education of McGill University, and a PH.D candidate at the Université de Montréal where her dissertation topic is Anti-authority Cyber-bullying. For the past year she has been in-servicing K-12 teachers, in-school administrators, students and parents on the 5Ws of cyber-bullying.
In addition to Maureen's presentation, CNIE President Ray Whitley, and Cheryl Teeter, the Chair of the forthcoming CNIE-RCIE Conference, May 10 -13 2009 at the Chateau Laurier in Ottawa, will be online to discuss the conference program and to give us the top ten reasons for attending this Spring.
