Description:

In today’s digital generation, we stay in touch with the world and our friends through our phones, tablets and laptops. Digital devices are glued to our hands. Texting and social media are vital to staying in touch with friends and connecting with new people. Most children and young adults use social media to connect, but it has also turned into the latest tool for bullying and harassment. It is easy to be invisible online. Anyone can be a cyberbully. Adults and kids underestimate the severity of cyberbullying and the impact it can have on a child’s life. Cyberbullying is 24x7x365 and reaches as far as the internet can carry it. In the worst cases, it could be why some of our youth take their lives. Submit features interviews from affected teens, parents of victims, educators, experts and law enforcement as they tackle this worldwide issue, while offering solutions to this complicated problem. Followed by a panel featuring the film's producer and academics who study the issue of bullying.

Event is free but you must reserve a space due to limited seating; rsvp to Tara Schonhoff by Friday, June 14: tara@education.ucsb.edu or 893-2238. Sponsored by the Gevirtz School at UCSB.
