The Define the Line project team has launched a new website for children, www.kidsdefinetheline.ca. This new site is intended to help children, parents and educators navigate difficult topics such as cyberbullying.The Define the Line project addresses cyberbullying through:
- Engaging in Research projects that involve education and law students;
- Developing workshops, curricula and resources including videos;
- Engaging students from elementary, high school and universities in developing resources and codes of conduct that address cyberbullying;
- Developing educational literacy programs working with arts and entertainment industries, media, and learning institutions;
- Working with, and learning from, digitally empowered kids; engaging them in developing Apps, videos, screenplays and writing projects around these issues.
Define the Line is a research program based at McGill University’s Faculty of Education and directed by Dr. Shaheen Shariff, an international expert who has pioneered research on cyberbullying over the last decade. Through their existing website (mcgill.ca/definetheline), research projects and outreach initiatives, Define the Line aim to help clarify the blurred lines between cyberbullying and digital citizenship, with a focus on policymaking, education and law.
