Cyberbullying Information and Prevention: Cyberbullying

Cyberbullying and Digital Citizenship

Digital citizenship skills involve the behavior of individuals utilizing online tools to interact with others, acquire goods and services online, seek information from online sources, and generally function in a society reliant on technology tools and resources.

A good digital citizen is aware of cyberbullying risks and prevention methods.  Partners from Idaho's education community, libraries, and Idaho government have joined together to create this resource to provide awareness and education to students, families, and educators about the risks and prevention of cyberbullying.

What is Cyberbullying?

Cyberbullying is bullying through the use of electronic tools and resources including:

  • instant messaging,
  • social networks,
  • texting,
  • email,
  • websites,
  • blogs,
  • online gaming, and
  • other methods of digital communication. 

Bullying of any form should be taken seriously. Education and awareness are key to the prevention of bullying and keeping students safe. Students, parents, and educators are encouraged to learn more about bullying to recognize it, prevent it, and take action to stop it from harming students, families, and their supporters.
