Nature and Context

As technology develops, teachers and students alike are finding more creative ways to share resources and build communities driven by learning. Creating safe places to effectively share and monitor interactions is crucial to future learning, especially as more schooling transitions to remote or online learning. Also important will be the identification and confronting of online bullying in an educational setting. 1 in 5 students report being bullied while in school, and the numbers only go up if we include online bullying in those statistics.
