Great initiative, but I doubt if this alone will eradicate cyber bullying? as teens need to be self aware of the consequences of their actions.

Hence education. The UK is getting big on Internet safety and bulling on the Internet from an year age but this only a start. I can see this becoming a bigger part of the curriculum

But this will only do so much. It is about changing a culture/idea that will be difficult and may take many years (not a quick fix solution)

Yeah, surprised the % was this high of students who reconsidered tbh.

I would be cautious. She is 10 years old, many of these science fair projects don't follow proper scientific methods, and then there are websites like this that fail to report her methods, which makes things worse.

At a glance, I can't imagine her current method had much ecological validity. It would have been a controlled implementation, which is barely even relevant considering this is a behavioural study with intent for real-world applications.

So what about all the 25+ bully's, who DDOS and use craigslist to send creepy people to your house?

Finally, a way to stop cyber-bullying. I mean it's not like you could just block somebody who sends you messages or anything, oh no.

It's not always that simple though is it? Especially with phones and a myriad of avenues of digital communication.

It also depends how determined a bully is. Making new accounts is easy.
