Several local schooldistricts have recentlyaddressed updatingbullying policies. At thebeginning of the month,Southwest Allen CountySchools decided to revisetheir anti-bullying policy,after the school boardunanimously voted toadopt a new policy. Thedistrict’s previous policydid not include digitalcommunications as part of their definition of bullying.Northwest Allen CountySchools, in addition toFort Wayne CommunitySchools, is also dealingwith cases of cyberbullying. This type of bullying has been donethrough social mediawebsites, includingFacebook.In response to the cyberbullying attacks, the city’sown McMillen Center forHealth Education recentlyreleased updatedprogramming to meet thecurrent needs of thecommunity.Since “the early 2000s,we have been doingbullying education. In thenews, we’ve been hearinglots of stories about kidswho are using technologyin ways that aredeleterious to everybody,”McMillen Center’sprogram manager, LindaHathaway, said.She said the changefrom less in-personbullying has happenedbecause technology hasevolved.“It’s interesting becausebullying has occurred foryears and years and years.Now, with the technology,kids can’t get away fromit at home.”The McMillen Centerdefines this new type of bullying as “the use of technology to harass,threaten, embarrass, ortarget another person.”Hathaway said the waytechnology has evolved isgreat, but on the otherhand, it can also be usedas improperly.“Technology can beused for all kinds of greatthings. It connects you toall kinds of people. Kids

IPFW programallows studentsto learn on the go
It took computers 20years to become widelyused in American class-rooms — from 1971,when mainframe andminicomputer-basedinstructional programswere developed, to thelate 1980s, when schoolscould choose between theApple Macintosh orDOS-based clones.So who would have thought that after all that timeestablishing themselves as a mainstay in classrooms,computers would take the learning experience out of thebuilding.It’s happening at Indiana University-Purdue UniversityFort Wayne. Since August, IPFW’s first faculty group toengage in Project #mobileEDU has been exploring thepotential of mobile learning through the use of AppleiPads. The initiative was made possible by an internalgrant from IPFW’s Office of Research, Engagement andSponsored Programs.Six months later, one-third of the university’s facultyare using iPads in their classrooms and research projects.“Over the course of the next semester, what we’reasking our faculty to do is to take a critical look at these
Students listen to a presentation in the teaching theater of the McMillen Center for Health Education.The center offers a variety of programs to meet the needs of regional schools. They offer several educa-tional classes to prevent cyberbullying and in-person bullying.
