When it comes to social platforms, cyber bullying is the most common on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The main victims are children and teenagers. This is usually because they are the ones sharing more personal information than recommended. Cyberbullies take advantage of their innocence and their lack of experience regarding self-defense and knowledge on human rights.
Another cyberbullying favorable medium is the gaming online chat. Unfortunately, this is a vicious cycle — children play violent games; due to the behavior in there, they think it is normal to be bullied, and further on, they become cyberbullies, too.
This type of reaction appears as a consequence to the outrage and disappointment of losing the game. Cyberbullying in search engines always get viral. Users post fake information and pass them as true. He uses networking, real-world situations, and extensive research to shape his content. Without complaint, he tailored his presentation to fit our curriculum needs, and adjusted it according to our time requirements.
He came to our training overly prepared and extremely well-organized. Hinduja has a vast knowledge and real passion for the topics of cyber-bullying and safe social networking, and that was very evident throughout the day. He didn't need any fancy gadgets or tricks up his sleeve to get the audience mesmerized.
The flawless way he delivered the information was enough. In fact, months later, I am still getting rave reviews about him. Simply put- when he speaks, people listen. His content is relevant and timely more today than ever. Hinduja made a huge impact, and given the chance, every single person who attended our training agreed that they would return to listen to him speak again.
To highly recommend Dr. Hinduja would feel like an understatement. Thanks for a really good workshop. Hinduja's presentation was informing and enlightening. His research and knowledge provided me with some immediate tools and resources to take back to my school. The coolest part was the live text survey.
I've got to learn how to do that at my next conference! I enjoyed your cyberbullying workshop in North Carolina today.
It was very well organized, clear, and reflected your obviously extensive knowledge of the subject. You also responded to questions very sensitively, and I was particularly impressed with how respectfully you interacted with [a sixteen-year-old in the audience]. Your objective, calm and thorough summary of the pervasive reach of cyberbullying in the lives of our children was instructive.
Teachers, school board members and parents who are not aware of the complexity of this topic would benefit from hearing your presentation. Patchin came to our school and community and presented to our 3rdth grade students, staff, and community members. His knowledge is vast and he has a way to relate to all ages of students, staff, and parents in his knowledge of cyberbullying and beyond. His examples were super and his stories were priceless and hit close to home to all involved.
Sameer Hinduja was the guest speaker. Even as an adult, I was a little apprehensive about sitting at a designated table, staring at unfamiliar faces, wondering how this would all go down, and could only imagine how the teens were feeling. Hinduja quickly captivated our attention by asking us to take out our cell phones and respond to his posted question.
Immediately I knew I would like this guy because the first thing he did was remind us that technology is here to stay and will only become more a part of our daily routine, in class or not.
We live in a time where we should embrace the technology and make sure others know how to use it safely and in a positive way. Not only did I enjoy the manner in which Dr.
Hinduja delivered his ideas, but what he chose to speak about was relevant. Hinduja, for taking the time to share and make a difference.
The Meadowbrook School of Weston, Massachusetts is grateful and appreciative of the half day you spent with our children and faculty. You offered three completely different yet equally effective workshops on cyberbullying and on-line safety among numerous topics. The parents unanimously commented to me that your presentation was the best they had attended in this area.
Your talk with them was factual, informative, poignant, supportive and emotional. Your presentations to our children in grades 3, 4 and 5 and then again to grades 6, 7 and 8 were equally informative but uniquely tailored to each age group.
Additionally, you were authentic in your presentation and very personable, witty and caring. You captured their attention, ignited their interest and fostered instantaneous believability with all of them. The level of questioning from them indicates the level of trust you earned with them. At the end of three workshops you gave freely of your time in the faculty room so that you could be a resource to teachers seeking greater understanding and clarity.
Bringing you to Meadowbrook was a stroke of genius and already there is a clamoring for return engagements. Thank you for your passion in this area, for educating our parents and teachers and for passionately striving to make our children safe.
His stories and insight hit home with the youth as he speaks their language and knows how they think. He gave clear examples of problems youth are encountering along with easy to use tips that youth can utilize to keep safe. We were fortunate in Nassau County, Florida to bring Dr. After meeting with students in classrooms, club meetings and assemblies, Dr. He was flexible about the setting he spoke in, the size of the audience he spoke to, the time he was allowed to present in, and the busy schedule required of him.
Administrators appreciated having a copy of his book as a resource, students appreciated his real world cyber experiences, and I appreciated his passion for and expertise of his subject. Keep up the good work, Dr. Your message is going to continue to be relevant for youth, teachers and administrators for years to come.
Rather, he promoted the importance of open dialog with our children and education on proper use. Good, applicable guidelines that educators, parents and students alike could implement. I appreciate the work he is doing in this field and his willingness to share many resources -for free — with others. I left the conference with a renewed sense of hope in being able to offer valuable feedback and resources not only to the youth and families that I work with, but to my own family as well.
Sameer's presentation was excellent! He tailored it to meet the needs of our varied audience members, which included parents, school staff, school administrators, and law enforcement officers. In addition, he is very personable, organized, flexible and punctual. The Chester County Intermediate Unit would absolutely call on him again should the need arise in the future - he's awesome! I have been to so many conferences on the topic of "Bullying".
So often they are riddled with data and legalities. Hinduja, are the first speaker that truly pulled in the human element.
I applaud you for that. Yes you gave the research, but you also gave us hope that a school climate could be achieved that would make it difficult for unfair treatment of others to exist. My colleagues and I all agreed we would have stayed for hours more at the conference because you were that fantastic! I have heard a lot of good things from the staff and students about your presentations, Dr.
We thoroughly enjoyed having you here with us and so greatly appreciated your message - and your wonderful speaking style. You did such a great job engaging our students. That is not easy with high school students! I just wanted to thank you for your important and timely presentation you gave today. I have an 8th grader who just got a twitter account and a senior who will be off to college next year. They both commented on what a great presentation it was and what a great speaker you are!
My senior heard you previously. His comment about you is, "He's sick! I enjoyed your presentation a great deal. I mostly like how you approach the topic without blaming anyone rather encouraging responsibility, kindness and sensibility from all parts. Often times the little things are the ones that make the difference. I love your perspective in general, I have not heard anyone talking about involving the bullies in the solution rather than blaming or punishing them.
My son, a 9th grader, was also very impressed with your presentation. He was actually very happy about the way the topic was discussed. He also appreciated that the topic was discussed from a legal, social, educational…point of view rather than just punitive.
I truly enjoyed your talk in Atlantic City, Dr. Hinduja, and I was thinking of you yesterday. A group of middle school students had created a skit about exclusion, and the counselor made it available for all of the classes to view before their classroom meetings. One of the sixth graders, who has Cerebral Palsy, volunteered to act as the victim for the skit.
The students could see the skit multiple times, and analyze the behavior of the bystanders. It was a roaring success. Next week, the students will be presenting a video about the difference between tattling and telling.
I also have placed my Cyberbullying Trustee sign prominently on my office door, as well as on the podium of the school library. I have had a surprising number of adults approach me about internet security and social networking since the conference. I gave a lesson to the sixth grade about online publishing using the materials on your website. Even though that particular class has approached me often with defiance, they did seem to appreciate the information, dropping their attitudes and asking thoughtful questions.
Thank you for all of your efforts to provide information about cyberbullying. You are a true hero. Hinduja's interactive style kept me engaged throughout the entire conference. I found myself running out of room to take notes on my legal pad because his wealth of knowledge is so extensive. I would strongly recommend attending any conference with Dr. It was truly one of the best conferences I've ever attended out of my 12 years as a school social worker.
His presentation was professional and informative. He gave good advice on how to communicate with our children and to be aware of the dangers on the internet. He provided us with the resources that we need to assist us as parents in dealing with some of the dangers of social networking. Recently I was privileged to attend a seminar on cyberbullying presented by Sameer Hinduja, Ph.
It was two hours extremely well-spent. Hinduja is an engaging speaker and an expert on this topic. I found myself completely entranced and will be much more alert to this pervasive kind of bullying. I would highly recommend this seminar to students, parents and educators. We loved the balance of research, analysis of relevant legal cases, text polling, videos, and practical solutions focusing on creating a positive school climate.
The only downside is that he is going to be a hard act to follow in our future events! He spoke to all of our students in grades four through twelve as well as to administrators, counselors, computer teachers and other staff members. In addition, he conducted an evening session with parents. The positive feedback we received from all of these groups indicated that Dr. Hinduja opened a lot of eyes about the ever-growing problem of cyberbullying. His statistics and case scenarios were on target for each audience.
Most importantly, he supplied every audience with specific strategies for keeping safe in cyberspace. Our district plans to follow up on this issue by implementing many of the suggestions he covered, especially in the area of working closely with parents to stem the growing tide of cyberbullying incidents.
I would recommend Dr. Sameer Hinduja was a great speaker. I recently attended a Cyberbullying Prevention presentation by Sameer Hinduja. I found the presentation to be highly informative and engaging.
His presentation style is engaging and I would highly recommend him as a presenter for adults but also for middle school and high school students.

I believe that our students truly will "Think" before they "Send" in the future, especially since their futures may depend on responsible social internet usage.
In an intense morning, Sameer gave three distinct and powerful presentations. While the subject was the same,Dr.
Hinduja skillfully tailored his presentation for each session — parents, high school students, and middle schoolers — in a way that was engaging and informative.
Students loved the real time polling and real life examples. Conversations carried on for days after Dr. The Cyberbullying Research Center and Dr. Hinduja are terrific resources for anyone who works with adolescent students and their parents.
Hinduja for an outstanding workshop on cyberbullying. The audience included school and district administrators, attorney for the schools, school resource officers from law enforcement agencies, teachers and counselors. He provided exceptional information to a group that had a variety of needs without losing any of his audience.
By using a mixture of powerpoints, videos and group activities, he kept everyone engaged, on task and communicated a wealth of pertinent and timely information. As an international school in the Caribbean, we seem to be behind the curve in addressing social media and its benefits and perils. Hinduja brought us up to speed, and also gave us tons of hard facts, ideas, and tools with which we will be able to help our kids safely navigate social media, both now and in the future.
This was the most useful workshop I have attended in 13 years as an educator. The information about cyberbullying was current, relevant and engaging. The workshop inspired me to create a workshop for my staff and students about this important and unfortunately very real topic.
My endorsement for having Sameer Hinduja come and speak with your organization is one grounded in having an audience of teachers, social workers, principals, LPC's, etc. The event sponsored by the Junior League of Waco, McLennan Community College and the Educational Service Center of Region 12 in Waco, TX had positive feedback both in what they learned about Cyberbullying as well as, how to reach out to parents, teens and fellow co-workers.
I myself, have decided to share the community tips, parent and teen tips with those within our community services department to aid in their work with our residents.
Though he tailored his presentations to match the developmental needs of his audiences, Dr. Hinduja's message was the same across the board: His message resonated with our students and earned the resounding approval of the adults in attendance. I was so impressed with the extensive knowledge and level of caring exhibited by Dr. Sameer Hinduja during the recent Cyberbullying Series I attended.
I was shocked to learn of the increasing prevalence of this form of bullying. The information presented was interesting, useful and is an invaluable tool to protect and assist our students in this ever-changing digital world.
I know I will find the resources offered helpful in developing a climate of tolerance and understanding within the teaching community as well in my personal interactions with teens. Sameer Hinduja's presentation on cyberbullying was relevant, fresh, and engaging. In a large group he was not only able to be interactive, but gave useful information for educators to take back and use with staff, students and parents. I left the training with an excitement about implementing new ideas on how to make this a reality in our district and could not wait to share what I learned with other educators!
Patchin - Your session was one of the highlights!! Thanks so very much for sharing your work with municipal judges. As I am sure you know, you are a great speaker the audience loved your presentation. We are sure to have you back at a future seminar.
The information that you provided was easily understood and showed others in the audience what we are dealing with andwhat can be done to educate or youth and parents. Thank you again for the valuable information. Sameer…Thank you…such a pleasure to meet you and have you participate in the evolution of our youth.

He is personable and easily connects with young people. His technophile perspective makes students feel that he is an advocate for their technological reality.
I personally had the opportunity to observe Sameer Hinduja speak at the University of Pennsylvania in the spring of His presentation was the most comprehensive and on target resource that I have found on the topic of cyber-bullying. His doctrine is supported with a strong research base as well as a youthful perspective. His philosophical approach on how to deal with cyber bullying makes sense. Thank you so much for the thoughtful and engaging conversation you lead with our students yesterday.
I heard from many parents that kids went home talking about the presentation last night. I can't wait to hear what the teachers say as they regroup on this topic next week. You truly made an impact and added another dimension to our Digital Citizenship program. I appreciate the time you took with the kids to individually answer their questions and the respect you showed for their concerns. I equally enjoyed the evening presentation for parents. You were spot-on with topics facing our community.
What you do for our society as a whole is truly a blessing. Thanks for sharing your passion with the world and being a roll model for kids and adults alike!

Thank god i am not like that 17 year old girl because the things being said to me are so mean I don't even know how a person can come up with this "shit" for lack of a better word. I feel if this person has such a problem with me they need to grow up and say it to me in person instead of try to act tough posting stuff without their name on it. The web site is for questions not insults and I think police should be more active on these site so people like that can get help because clearly there are issues!!!

Student Experiences with Reporting Cyberbullying. Most students who are bullied do not report their experiences to adults. This was true 30 years ago when I endured middle school and our research shows it largely continues to this day.
When we speak to students in schools across the nation, we always focus on the positives of social media while also sharing case studies to underscore the reminder they frequently need to hear: I was chatting with some of my students yesterday about cyberstalking, and just as I suspected, at least a few had experienced it and were able to share compelling stories about what happened.
It reminded me of two times I personally dealt with it as well, one by a fellow student in undergrad that The United States is no exception: Another study has shown that 1 in 5 elementary school children and 1 in 10 middle school students in the U.
