Ideal for administrators, counsellors, and teachers, this resource provides practical information about technology use and cyber bullying as it relates to today's students and schools. Although technology can be used to help students succeed both socially and academically, it is critically important that school professionals know how to address technology misuse, particularly cyber bullying, since problems of abuse are on the rise. "Cyber Kids, Cyber Bullying, Cyber Balance" introduces educators to the wide world of modern technology in all its forms and nuances. The authors illustrate how to identify instances of cyber bullying and respond to them appropriately. The extensive appendix includes legal guidelines, a school planning calendar, a student assessment form, and an incident report form. The book provides basic information about prevention, assessment, intervention, and evaluation that is readily accessible and easily understood and implemented. A new and exciting focus of the book is the concept of 'cyber balance' - helping students make healthy, safe choices about technology. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
