We have all heard or witnessed the devastating affects of bullying in schools. Though it always existed in previous generations, with the prevalence of technology, bullying is now amplified and in many ways worse because of how it can extend beyond the physical boundaries of school hours.
It is important for all educators to take a proactive role in fighting bullying, and I especially applaud those who make it their passion to do this on their own time, utilizing their own resources. For this reason, I'd like to nominate Gail Desler and Natalie Bernasconi's Digital ID website: http://digital-id.wikispaces.com for an Edublog award.
Their Upstanders. Not Bystanders campaign encourage all students to take an active role in speaking out against bullying. The Digital ID website is also rich in resources that both students and teachers can use when learning how to become upstanding digital citizens. This is definitely a wonderful blog, and I hope you will take a look because we all should be upstanders against bullying.
