Presenting on Cyberbullying and Youth Technology Misuse: The Role of Families and Communities
Presentations to students and parents on promoting the positive use of social media, gaming platforms, and related technology.
We have worked with The Cyberbullying Research Center for over five years, specifically with Justin Patchin and Sameer Hinduja. The information that they provide to our students is always relevant to their lives. Sameer presented the cyber-safety material this year in a way that students can understand and apply it. He maintains a tone of importance and seriousness in the message that relays to them the responsibility they assume while on social media, yet it is not in language or tone that implies blame, nor does it resemble lecture. Our teachers reported that students were really focused and enjoyed the presentation. The material from The Cyberbullying Research Center is alway fresh and discusses the most recent apps and devices that our 2021, pandemic students are using to communicate. We will call upon Sameer and Justin in the future.

Dr. Hinduja delivered smart, informative, compelling presentations that gave the audiences much to consider. Each presentation was tailored to the particular perspective of middle school students, high school students, and parents; they definitely hit the mark. Additionally, as a faith-based school, I appreciated the spiritual grounding Sameer was able to share with students. Highly recommended!

A reflective and kind person. A genuine expert in his field. A sincere yet entertaining speaker who truly knows his audience and how to engage with it. Sameer was such a pleasure to have speak to our students and parents; he made the planning and delivery of his visit truly enjoyable and easy. I whole-heartedly recommend inviting Sameer to speak with your school community.

Sameer Hinduja’s presentations were rich and powerful, providing us with detailed research results, evidence-based guidance on preventing and responding to cyberbullying, and practical parent-to-parent tips on making our kids more resilient and empathetic and on managing the complex cyber world they dwell in. Hinduja provides tools that enable parents and schools to make a tangible impact on the challenges we face around cyberbullying.
