This year, I have heard of many schools struggling with students being cyberbullied or instigating the cyberbullying. The influx of ways to communicate with each other online leads many students to post texts or images without considering the repercussions of those actions – which can be as devastating as suspension, expulsion, and sometimes criminal action.

I believe that as educators, it is our responsibility to educate ourselves as well as our students, peers, and community members about what bullying online looks like and what we can do as a community to prevent it. In that vein, this week’s infographic features a powerful, visualized breakdown of what cyberbullying looks like today:
