about the sensitive issue of cyberbullying and exactly how their CyberMentors scheme is helping combat this ever-growing issue.
Facebook laws have changed this week in order to combat online hate campaigners and help victims of cyber attacks, meaning that by law websites will now be forced to identify the ID of trolls. This is a huge step forward for victims to gain justice and really propels this issue into the minds of key decision makers. Nicola Brookes’ landmark case fuels debate that there needs to be more action taken to ensure online safety and respect. But what more can be done to help?
Routledge Education have launched a collection of articles highlighting this growing issue. Access articles for free, and listen to our audio interview (http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/articlecollections/cyberbullying/) with Richard Piggin, the Deputy CEO of BeatBullying (http://www.beatbullying.org/) who answers our questions about the sensitive issue of cyberbullying and exactly how their CyberMentors (https://cybermentors.org.uk/) scheme is helping combat this ever-growing issue.
As Richard Piggin says: “It’s important that we do research into this subject so we understand how prevalent cyberbullying is and what the different problems are. In particular, it's important that we understand directly from children and young people exactly what they are experiencing, because if we don’t know what the problem is we can’t work out the best ways to tackle it.”
This news is a massive step forward for campaigners against cyberbullying and a positive step to ensure online safety for young and adult users. The collection highlights topics from Psychology, Morality & Ethics (http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/access/cyberbullying/BIG_4040-CBRC_Psychology_PRF4.pdf) to Online Safety and Awareness (http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/access/cyberbullying/BIG_4040-CBRC_OnlineSafety_PRF4.pdf) to assist anyone that is faced with this issue in their daily lives.
