The First-aid Plan from Teachtoday will show you what to do.Bullying is not a phenomenon confined to the digital world. The Internet and popularity of smartphones makes it possible for harassment to extend into the virtual realm as well. This is what’s called cyberbullying and it has some special qualities: It can occur anytime and around the clock; it can spread super fast and sometimes happens completely anonymously.
But to take preventative steps before cyberbullying even breaks out, you can use our First-aid Plan! If you’re already facing a case, you’ll find the right way to deal with it here. The First-aid Plan also offers helpful tips on how to deal with the perpetrators.
