Learning about cyber safety and ethics.

Washington, UNITED STATES: TO GO WITH AFP STORY US-SOCIETY-YOUTH-EDUCATION-INTERNET BY VIRGINIE MONTET A teenager and his younger brother enjoy trading insults over an instant messaging system in Washington,DC 24 January 2007. Many children in the United States have started to use the internet as a way to cyberbully. According to Justin W. Patchin, PhD, Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice in the Department of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, ” Many kids that are involved or engaged in this behavior do it because they don’t have to interact face to face, they don’t see the harm that they are causing, they don’t really think that they are doing anything wrong, they think they’re just having fun.” AFP PHOTO/Nicholas KAMM (Photo credit should read NICHOLAS KAMM/AFP/Getty Images)
