Part B This lesson plan was inspired by the seriousness of cyberbullying. In todays society cyberbullying is a very critical topic because it affects the emotional state of mind of our youth. Educators need to understand what cyberbullying is and the effects it has on those affected. Victims of cyberbullying will be greatly affected to the point where their school work and social life are impacted. Technologys presence in the classroom is increasing with every passing day. It can aid in classroom instruction, but teachers of todays society need to learn about the serious ramifications that can come from the use of technology. With this lesson we aimed to teach educators what cyberbullying is and different forms it can take. We wanted to emphasize that cyberbullying does not just happen on Facebook; it can happen on Twitter, email, texting, Instagram, MySpace, Skype, and other various social media outlets. We wanted the teachers to collaborate and discuss about cyberbullying. By talking with one another, it will hopefully answer questions for those teachers who have them and get teachers interested in stopping cyberbullying. To emphasize the importance of cyberbullying, we created a certificate that the teachers will receive once they have gone through the training. It will be something tangible to show they attended, but also something they can hang in their classroom for students to see.
