“The most important thing about Cyberbullying”

The Northern Ireland WYRED group, composed of children from 10 to 11 years old, draws our attention to the problem of Cyberbullying.

As part of Cycle 2, one group of children from Tyrone, through their social dialogues and research gave valuable insights into this topic.

The Children were asked if they had a microphone and the whole world was listening, what was the most important thing they discovered about Cyberbullying?

“Not to Cyberbully cause it can hurt and treat people the same”.

“The bully never wins”

“Don’t Cyberbully because you don’t know what affect it will have on them”.

“If you Cyberbully, you probably have low self esteem.”

“ I would tell them, if you ever got into this situation, there is always a way through it, if you get help.”

“The effect on the victim is sad”.

“People look at cyberbullying in different ways”.

“Cyberbullying is hurtful and the wrong thing to do.”

“Lots of people get Cyberbullied when they are young and old.”

This topic challenged the children not only to think about the online world but also the real and lasting impact cyberbullying has on children and young people’s emotional wellbeing. The children decided that they could best reflect their research through a video that depicts the effects of cyberbullying.

We will display the brilliant artefacts of all the Children as part of the Final research phase.

Vittime di bullismo: la storia di chi in sé ha trovato la luce

Ci sono storie che godono a lungo della luce dei riflettori, altre invece, sono destinate a rimanere nell’ ombra. Queste ultime sono storie di una profonda sofferenza, di interminabili silenzi, di chi per paura o vergogna ha scelto di nascondersi. Ma è proprio a queste persone che dovremmo dar voce ed è per la medesima ragione che ho deciso di raccontare,entrando in punta di piedi nell’ emisfero  della sua solitudine,l’ esperienza di una delle tante vittime di bullismo. Non possiamo più ignorare,voltarci dall’ altra parte. L’ informazione e la parola sono forse ad oggi  gli unici due strumenti in grado di risvegliar le coscienze e di permettere alle stesse vittime di trovare la forza di dire basta: basta all’ umiliazione, alla sopportazione,al dolore.
