Cyber Smart

Cyber Smart

What it means to be cyber smart and why it is important?
Being cyber smart means being safe online, posting appropriate things and making sure that what you do online is positive and helpful. It is important because what you post online could affect you in the future bad or good and the things you share and show.

Two things you learned about being cyber smart and how you could apply it to your own life?
One thing I learned about being cyber smart is being positive. Applying this into my life could make things much easier, cause you would already know that nothing bad is going to happen and you won’t have to worry about any drama or beef between anyone. One example of what I mean about being positive online is like, posting positive things like appropriate photo’s, and meme’s that won’t throw any negativity to anyone.  Another thing I learned is adding/chatting to people you actually know, cause as they say, “Never talk to a stranger”.

A personal strategy a young person can do to help themselves if they are being cyberbullied?
The person being bullied could screenshot the messages and show a teacher/principal or parent about the things they say and do to them and can get everything done and dusted before anything else happens that could cause thoughts that could get out of hands.

An interpersonal strategy a young person can do to help their friend who is being cyberbullied?
They could be the ones who take evidence of what the cyberbully is doing and show a teacher or principal so they can have a parent meeting to stop this cyberbullying before it gets out of hand.

A personal strategy a young person who finds themselves bullying other young people can do to help build their self-esteem and change their behavior?
Try making friends with them and try help them understand that what they are doing is wrong and it is just hurting the other person.
