Cyberbullying and Digital Drama: Presentation Project

Learning Activity

You probably have heard of terrible stories about cyberbullying on the news or maybe even in your school community. “Cyberbullying is when a child, preteen or teen is tormented, threatened, harassed, humiliated, embarrassed or otherwise targeted by another child, preteen or teen using the Internet, interactive and digital technologies or mobile phones.” (

One reason cyberbullying can be so devastating is that it differs from face-to-face bullying. When teaching kids about cyberbullying, it’s important to focus on how cyberbullying is broader than the target and the bully — there are also bystanders and upstanders. Here are the role definitions (Taking Perspectives on Cyberbullying):

  • Target: A person who is the object of intentional action.
  • Offender: A person who intentionally commits acts to hurt or damage someone.
  • Bystander: A person who passively stands by and observes without getting involved.
  • Upstander: A person who supports and stands up for someone else.

Kids should be encouraged to move from being bystanders watching bullying happen, to being upstanders to stop the bullying and/or support the target. 

For this activity, you will use a tool from the Resources section or another online presentation tool of your choice to create a short, five-minute video presentation on cyberbullying and digital citizenship that you could present at a staff meeting or parent event, or share with colleagues online. 

The presentation must be recorded and a link to the video submitted for evidence.
