Teachers are education intervention
school and need
continuous training to prepare them to respond to new demands. In Spain there are various forms of teacher’s life long learning, ranging from meetings to share experiences to specialized courses through seminars and training courses.
In the case of cyberbullying, teachers are also beginning to train in various ways. For example, we highlight the Second International Conference on Educational Policies for the Knowledge Society entitled "A school that becomes a changing society" held in Granada, organized by the Directorate General of Educational Innovation and Teacher Training of Junta of Andalusia. In those days a team of professors at the University of Murcia presented the communication Teacher training in the safety of children online. Description of an educational program (http://www.juntadeandalucia.es/averroes/jornadas_internacionales/docs/ProgramaI IJornadas.pdf).
We also wish to highlight teachers’ initiatives to train specifically in monographic courses as offered by the Aragonese Association of Psycopedagogy (AAPS) entitled "School harassment: bullying and cyberbullying”.
Training for parents of students
The speed that characterizes the current technological development causes many parents of students feel "illiterate" in this matter, which makes them difficult to understand the characteristic problems of it and, therefore, the effective action to prevent their sons and daughters being involved in them. Parents feel the need to receive information and, especially training for understanding phenomena such as cyberbullying and to know what to do to prevent their children being involved in it.
Some schools have developed lectures and training courses for parents of students aimed at providing information for safe use of internet. Such is the case of secondary school Gran Capitán of Cordoba where it was held a briefing on "Safe use of internet and communication tools with centres”. After this lecture, the AMPA (Association of parents of pupils) posted on the centre's web a synthesis of the lecture plus a host of links to articles
