  1. An interesting blog. According to Sameer Hinduja and Justin Patchin , cyberbullying is defined as willful and repeated harm inflicted through the use of computers, cell phones, and other electronic devices. In short, it is bullying using technology.
    Nine strategies to prevent cyberbullying in our classrooms.
    1. Create digital citizens.
    2. Educate yourself.
    3. Discuss Bullying. Talk about age-appropriate cases of cyberbullying and their resolution.
    4. Supervise.
    5.Teach students it’s okay to report abuse.
    6.Establish firm policies.
    7.Encourage Active Student Participation in Decision Making.
    8.Finding the Right Response:
    9. Know when to use community resources. There may be situations that require the intervention of greater community resources such as counselors, administrators, and law enforcement.

    Cyberbullying needs to be taken seriously and getting the community involved may prevent larger problems. Offer counseling services to both victims and perpetrators. Let students know that it is okay to need to talk to someone.
    Cyber bullying occurs when electronic communications such as text messages, emails, instant messages, and social media updates are used to threaten or humiliate someone. Its consequences can be just as serious as the effects of bullying that occurs in person, yet cyberbullying is unique in many ways.

  6. Article published on The Conversation highlighting complexities of copyright in the music industry. "What many people don’t know is that just because two songs sound similar does not necessarily mean that there has been copyright infringement. This is because copyright is not a monopoly right – two people can come up with the same idea independently and that is okay. It also does not protect general ideas – those are in the public domain for everyone to use – otherwise we would only have one blues song, one love song and one rock anthem."
