The Cyber Wellness programme explores trolling and vigilantism, two types of aggressive online communication with similar undesirable outcomes. Aggressive online communication shows itself in many forms, such as trolling, flaming and cyberbullying. While these forms of aggression may not result in physical harm or injury, the emotional harm faced by victims can have a lasting impact. The programme also aims to improve the understanding of one’s online behavior and raise awareness of how to protect oneself in cyberspace.
Learning Outcomes for Parents
Participants will learn the four effects of media violence and how to recognize and respond to common forms of online aggression. They will also learn to manage their emotions and anger as well as be knowledgeable of the psychological effects of online aggression.
Learning Outcomes for Children
Participants will learn how the nature of social media changes the original intent of communication and intensifies the unintended effects. Participants will further explore how they can communicate online respectfully and responsibly. They will also brainstorm how to use the viral nature of the Internet to spread positivity.
The 2-hour seminar will include a 15-minute break. In the first hour, parents and children will be engaged in separate sessions, after which they will participate in a fun activity together.
