Media Education and Prevention of Cyberbullying

Open access

Abstract

Introduction: European-wide bullying statistics shows that 93% of Internet users aged 9-16 have bullying experience, or have been bullied, or they have been bullying online1. The article highlights the most common threats encountered in communicating in cyberspace, with emphasis on cyberbullying and its possible negative consequences in the context of victim’s self-sacrifice. Based on the results of more researches, including also ours, it justified the need of media education implementation as across-cutting theme in primary and secondary education and high schools in order to develop critical thinking as a prerequisite of respect of human rights and cyberbullying.

Conclusions: The didactic materials (praxeological results of applied project APVV-14-0176 solved at the Department of Ethics and Civic education, Faculty of Pedagogy, Matej Bel University in Banská Bystrica) are available online for primary school teachers. Teachers can use them directly to prepare specific media education topics, including cyberbullying, or to adapt them creatively to their own learning conditions and to share their pedagogical experience in an available on-line blog.
