A new report published by Beatbullying entitled Virtual Violence II: Progress and Challenges in the Fight against Cyberbullying, considers the state of cyberbullying amongst children, young people and teachers in the UK. The report reveals that cyberbullying is a 'weapon of choice' amongst the youth of today and is showing no signs of dissipating. FE and HE institutions are reminded of the importance of having in place adequate safeguarding measures to encourage appropriate use of their computing systems, whilst educating staff and students of the risks associated with inappropriate use of the internet. For more details you can access the Beatbullying report.
