CyberSmart! Cyberbullying Awareness Curriculum
A NASP Partnership Working for You
NASP is pleased to partner with CyberSmart! to bring to educators and parents the CyberSmart! Cyberbullying Awareness Curriculum, a positive and empowering suite of K-12 lessons provided free to schools. These materials can facilitate prevention of cyberbullying at the classroom level, and help provide outreach to families and the community.
In developing these lessons, CyberSmart! adopted an integrated approach, examining all current research findings and using best practices from the fields of cyber security, school violence prevention, and character education to affect behavioral change. The new curriculum is designed to guide students to think and act creatively and critically, defining the problems and issues themselves, and thus “owning” them. Without this ownership, no behavioral change can occur.
A NASP Member Opportunity
We encourage NASP members to share CyberSmart! Cyberbullying Awareness Curriculum with teachers and administrators in your schools as part of your ongoing efforts to promote bullying prevention and school safety. They offer an excellent opportunity to provide a positive, practical resource that can benefit the entire student body at no cost to you or the district.
