Resilience is the key to adapting to events in your life which are unexpected or unwanted.
What is Digital Resilience?
Digital Resilience is the ability to learn where to turn to for help and recover after an upsetting interaction or experience online.
Have you ever had a fight with your friend or with a classmate in the school yard? Or experienced bullying, be it someone pushing you around or saying nasty things about you? Things can get heated but hopefully there’s an adult or teacher present that you can talk to or a way to resolve the issue with the other person face to face.
When you’re online, this is not as straight forward. Online bullying, or cyberbullying as it’s often referred to, is carried out using the internet, smartphone or other technological devices.
What’s important to remember is that, even though it’s happening online, you still need to tell someone about it. Bullying of any kind needs to be dealt with as soon as possible.
