2. OBJECTIVES OF THE WORKSHOP
- Educate and familiarize the young people on the issues of online violence, especially cyberbullying which means the use of digital technologies with an intent to offend, humiliate, threaten, harass or abuse somebody.
- Provide examples so the children get more familiar with the internet environment.
Teach children and young people how to recognize the problem and protect themselves;
- Promote behavioural change.
The rise of the Internet has delivered new levels of creativity, innovation and informed generations, especially among children and young people. Even so, this connectivity has also become a vehicle for extreme harm. Although children have long been exposed to violence and exploitation, the Internet and new technologies have changed the scale, form and impact of the abuse of young people everywhere.
Children’s lives and experiences are increasingly being shaped in the digital world. More than 200,000 children go online every day, and 800 million are actively using social media. Children’s lives are now being shaped behind a screen, and every day, children are diving deeper into platforms not designed with their safety in mind. As they ingest information, build friendships and make connections, disturbing trends are emerging that threaten children of all ages — even those too young to speak.
We all spend a ridiculous amount of time online. With the internet in your pocket, in school, at work and at home, it is impossible to escape it. That’s why being bullied online can be absolutely rubbish, and can make it feel impossible to live your life. We have put together this information so you can understand everything you need to know about cyberbullying and where you can get help if you need it.
