Technology to stop cyber-bullying

 

On Friday, it was the seventh National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence.

 

The modern, connected world in which our children and grandchildren are growing up in means bullying doesn’t stop at the school gate: it continues online, outside of school hours.

 

Research shows that Australia has one of the highest rates of cyber-bullying in the world, with data also indicating that one in five Australian students have experienced cyber-bullying.
Melbourne creatives and Headspace have come up with a technology to combat on-line abuse in real time called ‘Reword’.

 

Clinton and Richie discuss the topic with Vikki Ryal, Head of Clinical Practice at headspace.
