Cyberbullying Incident Tracking Form

Cyberbullying Incident Tracking Form

Cyberbullying has so many forms and definitions. One of the resources we use is the Cyberbullying Research Center. I have had the privilege of hearing Dr. Justin W. Patchin, one of the founders,  speak at a conference. They put out good sound advice and offer up-to-date resources on what to look for, how to help, and as importantly How To Report incidents.  I am also a fan of their facebook page and they reminded us today that it is good to get a lot of information when reporting an incident. This might be a good form for schools to adopt or a parent to use when trying to be sure they have all of the facts to share with a school official.  You can access it here Cyberbullying_Incident_Tracking_Form   or go to their website.  Here is what their front page looked like today:

“What’s New at the Cyberbullying Research Center

The Cyberbullying Research Center is dedicated to providing up-to-date information about the nature, extent, causes, and consequences of cyberbullying among adolescents.  Cyberbullying can be defined as “willful and repeated harm inflicted through the use of computers, cell phones, and other electronic devices.”
