Abstract:

Are future secondary school teachers able to identify the possibilities for preventing and reducing negative consequences of bullying and cyberbullying using digital technologies? We verified this question through a case study method. Teachers play a very important role in detection, elimination, as well as prevention. It is therefore necessary to educate them and constantly remind them of the seriousness of these problems. In our research, we tried not only to identify the opinions of respondents, future secondary school teachers, but also to emphasize these problems. The existence of ICT have "facilitated" the spread of violent content and thus encouraged its wider expansion. In our research, respondents stated several serious and important ideas. The number of identified cases of bullying and cyberbullying in their vicinity was increasing. There was non-significant number of opinions about non-existence, or ignorance of any kind of bullying near respondents. Despite identifying the contribution of ICT tools to the increase in bullying and cyberbullying, respondents did not mention these tools as possible preventive tools. We can conclude that, although the most respondents are able to identify these issues. The mentioned ways for preventing and eliminating negative consequences were only general and did not exceed basic knowledge about this growing phenomenon.
