Participation in projects
Schools are required to respond to a complexity of problems affecting the centres. Diversity that, in many cases, it is difficult to tackle with the necessary preparation and time. Therefore, schools tend to be ascribed or participate in projects that are designed by external agents and which facilitate and guide its work in this regard.
In the case of cyberbullying several programs are offered to which schools can be ascribed. Such is the case of Dédalo Project, an awareness program to promote safe and responsible use of Internet for 6th grade students and in which 101 public and private schools of Castilla-Leon, their parents and teachers, have participated during the 08/09 school year.
GUIDELINES ORIENTED TO SAFER USE OF ICT AND CYBERBULLYING PREVENTION
In most cases, the proposed interventions to deal with cyberbullying are reduced to the elaboration of lists with advices about how to behave and/or prevent when cyberbullying episodes appear. These guidelines are focused mainly on the field of electronic security (e-safety), being less frequent those aimed at improving the convivencia or anti-bullying policies.
Guidelines have been developed, mostly, trying to answer the needs of different protagonists in the management and use of ICT: parents, teachers and students. However, the differences between them are mainly based on the language used when presenting the information, but not in the contents included. Contents, when are analysed and compared, show a high degree of agreement, regardless of whom they are addressed. In some cases, some of the proposals are directly taken from other already developed earlier (e.g., guidelines offered by Friendly Screens are translated from a U.S. guide produced by Parry Aftab).
Here are some of the more significant proposals that reflect the general lines
