Cyberbullying is harassment that is delivered by technology, like Instagram or Tik Tok.
Jenna and Rebekka are two 12 year old twins who run into a bit of trouble online.
Every day there are so many people expressing themselves on the internet and sharing their ideas with the world. But the internet isn't all fun and games, sometimes things can get pretty nasty out there.
Jenna and Rebekka walk home every day but today they are even more eager to get home. They are really excited to go on the internet. There are so many different uses for the internet.
As soon as Rebekka gets to her room she gets out her guitar and sound editing tools. She uses the internet to share her music and collaborate with others. But she also likes connecting to the world around her.
Was that singing?
When Jenna gets to her room, she starts working on a painting to share with the world. She feels like her artwork should be out there for all to see. She uses the internet to build positive environments, to keep in touch with friends who've moved away, and for research for school.
Soon after, it's time for them to get some rest. There are so many benefits to technology but it can also be dangerous online if you aren't careful. Someone could: hack your account, threaten your safety, direct unwanted attention to your account or spread rumours about you.
Rebekka wakes up and checks her phone. She is very excited to see how her posts are doing. But when she checks her phone she notices that people have been threatening her, saying incredibly offensive personal comments and making fun of everything about her that she showcased in the video: her voice, her hair and her clothes.
