Cyberbullying is a term that describes the use of Internet e-mail, instant messaging, chat rooms, cell phones, or other forms of information technology to deliberately hurt, taunt, ridicule, threaten or intimidate someone.
About 70 percent of those surveyed told researchers that they were unlikely to tell their parents about the incidents. The most popular reasons given for cyberbullying were not liking a person and believing bullying is humorous.
The Institute surveyed thousands of students and teachers in order to design lesson plans, activities, prevention strategies, videos, and guides for parents and teachers.
"Most students we survey are unaware they could be leaving a trail of electronic fingerprints in their wake," said Margaret Ross, CEO of Kamaron. "When I speak with teen leadership organizations discovering they may not be as invisible as they thought, it makes a big impact."
