For girls, cyberbullying taints perception of school and learning
Involvement in cyberbullying among young girls — as a victim, perpetrator or both, leads to a feeling of inadequacy and a belief that they are not accepted by peers. This perception can then trigger negative perceptions of the importance of school and the value of learning. In a new study, researchers from Nottingham Trent University found that 11-15 year-old girls who were most involved in cyberbullying are subject to extreme stress given the 24/7/365 information sharing environment of social media.
