MSU offers free online cyberbullying training

MSU Extension Service

RAYMOND, Miss. -- Educators planning for next year can participate in a free, online train-the-trainer course that will help them teach children and adults how to recognize and combat cyberbullying.

The Mississippi State University Extension Service partnered with the Mississippi Attorney General's Office and the Mississippi Department of Education's Office of Healthy Schools to develop the program.

Law enforcement officers, school resource officers and other interested adults can also participate.

Interested individuals must register and complete online modules before beginning the course. Participants who successfully complete the program will gain access to additional training resources they can use to help elementary, middle and high school students -- as well as parents -- understand what cyberbullying is, what forms it can take and how to address it.

To register, visit the MSU Extension Center for Technology Outreach website at http://techoutreach.msucares.com/cyberbullying. For more information, contact Extension instructor Jamie Varner at j.varner@msstate.edu.
