In my opinion, Cyberbullying and Cyberthreats is the best resource about this important topic. Combines knowledge of technology, educational approaches to youth and parents, and the law. Highly recommended! --Stan Davis, author of Schools Where Everyone Belongs
The preventive stance of this text is an asset, rendering it nearly essential for any North American school district with a sizable student population online (on- as well as off-site). School policy makers may be especially attracted to the book's 12 appendices. These include reproducible checklists, needs assessments, incident reporting forms, and district and student Internet use policy drafts. Purchasing schools or organizations wishing to modify any of these documents for their own purpose are able to download appendices from the Center for Safe and Responsible Internet Use website. Willard notes that these documents are subject to online update, perpetuating the relevance of her text into the near future, a boon considering the relative youth and rapidly changing nature of its subject. --Camille J. Randall, Contemporary Psychology
. . . contains a very helpful Parent's Guide to Cyberbullying and Cyberthreats as well as an excellent, concise fact sheet entitled CyberbullyNOT: Stopping Online Social Cruelty. There is also a very useful Situation Review Process handout and School Action plan for working with parents and students. --Karen Creech, Instructional Technology, Dept. of Public Education, Raleigh, NC
