Tweens are getting their first phones, first social media accounts—and first experiences in cyberbullying. What, when and why does this occur? In this edWebinar, join Dr. Justin Patchin, the co-director of the Cyberbullying Research Center, and Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, the founder of Digital Respons-Ability to learn about insights, research and strategies on how to handle cyberbullying with tweens.

Dr. Patchin will share his findings from a 2020 study around tweens and cyberbullying, and more of his extensive research into this topic. Both he and Carrie will provide advice for educators on managing cyberbullying with tweens based on research and experience.

This edWebinar will be of interest to teachers and school and district leaders of the elementary through middle school levels. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
