Cyberbullying of teachers? Not in North Carolina

At least not anymore. A new law ‘School Violence Protection Law of 2012’ will prosecute those who cyberbully teachers. I found this really interesting:

“One in six educators report experiencing cyberbaiting, according to a Norton survey of 2,279 teachers in 24 countries. In some instances, students attempt to provoke school employees to near-breakdown. It’s a growing phenomenon inside and outside the classroom.”

So it sounds as if something like this was needed. This is a very interesting topic that I talk about with my students who will be teachers. We usually speak of facebook/social network privacy and how to make sure people searching you on google only find what you intentionally want them to find and not pictures of that crazy night you were out drinking:)
