3/4A at North Fitzroy Primary viewed a video on bullying and this generated a great discussion. Then they looked at the UK gov site http://yp.direct.gov.uk/cyberbullying/ on cyberbullying and had another discussion centering around what technological mediums cyberbullying might take place. The students went away in small groups to plan a scene where cyberbullying would take place, show its negative effects and consider how it might be solved. They printed out a heap of comic life templates and they went away and created their draft scene. Then they started creating their final drafts in comic life. Note how students have mastered photo booth and used this to great effect.
