These two videos speak volumes about the topic of cyber bullying, however the first one is trying to make a point about how hurtful reading mean things about you can be where the second one actually addresses how to deal with modern day bullies. I think that the second video relates to the approach I take with cyber and or regular bullying in my classroom. I teach students to focus on the situation and find ways to resolve issues and problems before they escalate too far. In the past kids used to talk behind each others backs and now they use all sorts of technology to say mean things about each other. I think either of these videos is supportive against the anti-bullying campaign.
Your information footprint on the internet is like your body in the real world: it defines your identity. Like seeing some part of your body, seeing some part of your information footprint – like the location of the device you’re posting from or the pattern of your language – may make it possible for someone to uniquely identify you even when there is no name or other explicit identifier attached. For example, your IP address is always transmitted, and when you’re browsing the web, your browser transmits information about the browser’s configuration to the website server. These details can be combined together to serve as a unique identifier. My advice, don’t do anything online that you wouldn’t do or say in public.
