Last week I ran the second half of the Cyberbullying sessions with all Grade 4 and 5 students. We watched the additional interviews with the characters in the ‘Let’s Fight it Together!’ Movie. The classes formed 4 groups of 4 students for each character. Each group asked questions about their character to the rest of the class. As there are five main characters (KIm, Joe, Rob, Mum and Teacher) in the movie, I took on the left over character. I gave them the chance to randomly choose a character. Interestingly I was Joe a couple of times:) Watching interviews and asking the questions led into very nice discussions between students. Regardless of age or grade difference all the students were very well engaged and led very detailed discussions. I can proudly say that they all got the idea of cyberbullying being the same with bullying. They were very angry with the Kim character (the bully) and agreed with Rob ( his friend / bystander) that they can be in the same position with him. They seem to get the idea and if they need any help on cuyberbullying, they are ready to share it with their community.
Well done Grade 4 and 5! You are my Cyberstars!
