Cyberbullying in the classroom - Have your say!

In 2017, Smoothwall commissioned The Digital Curriculum, an exclusive research report aimed at discovering how technology has revolutionised education as well as the increasing pressures faced by teachers to deal with cyberbullying and radicalisation in the classroom.

As broadcast on Sky News TV, Radio Aire, Viking FM plus many more, the research found that cyberbullying had increased by 37% in the last 12 months, with 2 in 3 teachers citing this as the biggest online safety concern in schools. Taking place over digital devices such as smartphones, computers, tablets and games consoles, cyberbullying occurs when an individual or group of people send, post or share negative, harmful, false or mean content about someone online.

Cyberbullying is becoming a regular feature on national news, with a story just last week calling for social media networks to prioritise tackling the issue to protect the mental health of young people. In order to find out the true scale of cyberbullying within education, and further help support schools, we are conducting a follow-up research campaign in partnership with National Online Safety and are looking for YOUR INPUT

Whether you work in a school, are a parent or guardian, or a student, you can help by taking our short survey. The survey takes no longer than 5 minutes and can be accessed using the links below:

We ask if you would kindly share our survey links with your friends, family and colleagues to help us understand the true cyberbullying landscape of today's society. Please leave additional comments or queries below.
