Cyberbullying, now Cyberbaiting
There's a new term being thrown around - Cyberbaiting. This takes cyberbullying to another level.
Instead of students bullying students via the internet, students are now trying to bully teachers.
Students will intentionally provoke teachers and try and catch a possible embarrasing or compromising situation on their phone.
Once the incident is captured the student attempts to 'bait' the teacher by threatening to post the picture/video online.
According to Symantec - 1 in 5 teachers has personally or knows of a fellow teacher caught up in a cyberbaiting scenario.
Its no surprise now that 67% of teachers say being friends via social media networks with students is risky.
