23 Jun Future Design Podcast “COVID19 Special” w/ Anuradha Rao – Dealing with Cyberbullying
While our physical lives merge more into our virtual lives, cyberbullying has become a social problem, whether it’s an adult or a child. Studies show that 50% of parents with children aged 6 -18 have reported them to be bullied. 1/5th of that takes place online so with that in mind how do we prepare our children for the negative effects of social media?
Anuradha Rao, Ph.D. of Communications and New Media, also a founder of Cyber Cognizanz, works with people to understand the promises and perils of living and working in cyberspace and how to combat its negativities. She talks about what parents can do when their children are bullied, how to avoid them from getting bullied, and how we can educate our children to prepare them from potential adversity from being online.
We also get into topics like the consequences of buying social media followers, tackling fake news, and the constant focus and envy towards just on the positive sides of life.
