Journal: Universal Journal of Educational Research

Abstract: This article analyses the views of cyberbullying prevention among 5-12 grade pupils and teachers in Lithuanian schools. It defines the concept of cyberbullying in the context of school pupils, and analyses the theoretical grounds for prevention of this form of bullying. The article also presents the results of the survey (which was conducted in 2009-2010) and reveals the views of 2064 pupils of 5 -12 grade and their 1062 teachers towards the prevention of cyberbullying. Based on the empirical research, it could be concluded that efforts to prevent cyberbullying among 5-12 grade pupils in school must be consistent, and permanent, and involve the whole school community. From the perspective of the pupils, the most effective measures to prevent cyberbullying should be oriented toward psychological conditioning (to strengthen pupil’s self-esteem and to outline the consequences for pupils who are involved in cyberbullying).

Journal: Scandinavian journal of psychology

Abstract: sing a person-oriented approach the study examined whether bullying victimization at school continued into cyberspace victimization in a large sample of high school students in Lithuania (N = 1667, 58% girls), age 15–19 (M = 17.29, SD = 0.95). Three forms of traditional bullying (verbal, physical and relational) and seven forms of cyberbullying victimization through cell phones and computers were included in the analysis. The findings revealed that 35% of traditional bullying victims were also bullied in cyberspace. In particular, adolescents who experienced predominantly verbal and relational bullying at school, showed a higher risk of victimization in cyberspace a year later, while this was not observed for predominantly physical forms of traditional bullying. The findings point to the importance of a cross-contextual perspective in studies on stability of bullying victimization.
