Abstract

Education scholars have recognized the current cohort of university students as the "always-connected generation" (Bull, 2010). As a result, selecting appropriate and yet targeted teaching tools for this generation is both "challenging our notion of a teaching environment" (p. 634) and raising questions about how to best "mitigate the negative impact of new technologies on learning" (Billsberry & Rollag, 2010, p. 635). One of the negative impacts that arise from the intersection of technology and education is cyber bullying. It is this extremely important and often difficult to predict element of online-based communications - cyberbullying - that serves as the focus of this chapter.
