Cyber Bullying News Review

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Thank you for the wonderful review from Jenny Walker at www.CyberBullyingNews.com

Here is an excerpt from her review of our website. You can read the entire article here.

  1. The Presentation and Message is On-Target for Young People: The DVDs are obviously very high quality and visually appealing to young people. We can imagine that young people would engage well with this medium and would not “switch off” out of boredom or the feeling that this is adults trying to tell us something and they really don’t get it yawn! Adina’s Deck does appear to “get it” and knows how to draw in young people with a presentation and message that is relevant and meaningful.
  2. Peer-to-Peer Teaching: We especially appreciate the peer-to-peer teaching approach of these DVDs. This is not about adults telling youth what to do (which we know does not work well), but about young people (with the help of adults) helping each other to learn (which we know does work well).
  3. Levels of Intervention: We like the fact that the DVDs can be used either individually or as a series; by parents, teachers, and/or schools/organizations. We know that the most effective approach to online safety and digital citizenship is to integrate prevention efforts throughout the entire school and curriculum (and involve the larger community) rather than approach it in a more piecemeal, ad hoc manner. While the DVDs can be a stand-alone resource, they also allow for a more holistic, integrated approach. We can imagine that these would be a great kick start to initiate such an approach.
  4. Great Resources: Adina’s Deck provides links to some other valuable resources, such as Connect Safely; Critical Issues for Girls (coming soon to their website; in the meantime, check out our blog on Alison Trachtman-Hill); and Shaping Youth.
