Digital Natives: Cyberbullying
In this week's installment of the Digital Natives Reporters in the Field series we hear from Lisa Epstein, a 19-year-old UMASS student and former victim of cyberbullying. Here is "Insights on Cyberbullying: an interview with a digital native" as presented on the Digital Natives blog:
In this week’s audio podcast, our Reporters-in-the-Field asked 19-year-old UMASS student and New Jersey native, Lisa Epstein, to share her thoughts on the world of cyberbullying. In this interview, Epstein provides insight on how the anonymity of cyberbullies makes one question who her real friends are, and how the Internet acts as a “big shield” in such situations.
