Bullying often used to end when the school bell rang. In the digital age, cyber aggression can occur 24 hours a day. With new social media apps and technology every day, how do we help students navigate safely? Guest Carol Todd’s daughter, Amanda, took her life because of cyberbullying & mistreatment but we can prevent new tragedies with the right solutions.
Carol Todd is a mother, advocate and longtime teacher. Carol’s daughter Amanda Todd raised awareness about the consequences of cyber-bullying with a YouTube video that’s been seen by over 19 million people. The Amanda Todd Legacy was created by Carol to help others in need with resources and assistance to address anti-bullying, mental health and cyber safety.
What is one simple thing you thing staff can do if they haven’t had any bullying prevention training?
