National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence
Bullying. No Way! is holding it’s 7th annual National Day of Action this Friday 7 March 2017 and aims to help schools across the country to deliver the message that bullying and violence is never okay.
Recent studies on cyberbullying cases in Australia find that 1 in every 10 kids have been bullied online. And 84 percent of the kids who were bullied online were also bullied offline, so addressing both forms of bullying together makes sense.
With cyberbullying being the most common form of bullying it is so important that schools understand the duty of care they have in keeping kids safe, not just in the playground, but online too.
Cyber bullying statistics in Australia do not reflect the true depth of the problem, however, since they only take into account cyberbullying incidents that are reported. One American study reported on in the Journal of School Health states that 90 percent of cyberbully victims have never told an adult they were bullied online.
CyberHound can help give schools leaders peace of mind with unique software that uses pattern matching technology and behavioural analytics that identifies and alerts welfare officers to issues of cyberbullying. The software, called ClearView, helps to detect ‘at risk’ behaviour that may result from bullying as well, such as self harm, aggression, drugs and eating disorders.
