Abstract

My goal through my research project is to bring awareness to the public of cyberbullying and to show people how to stop it from spreading more in their community and globally. I am going to do this by using my graphic design background to create an informational research poster. Cyberbullying can happen to everyone and with the advancement of technology, it’s much harder to get ahold of it now. Kids who are being bullied at school are also being cyberbullied outside of school and that makes it harder for them to escape from all the negativity, eventually leading them to anxiety, depression, and sometimes even suicidal problems to have to face with lifelong effects. I believe that no one should have to deal with those kind of things, especially from peers that you meet in a place that is supposed to be a safe space, such as school. Cyberbullying rates have increased drastically since studies from 2008 and they have continued to grow every year. Some statistics I gathered about it from https://americanspcc.org/bullying/cyberbullying/ states that, “June 2014: Nationwide, 14.8% of students report being cyberbullied, including being bullied.” This is through various forms of social media. Middle school and high school are hard enough. There are various tips, advice, statistics, and effects of cyberbullying I would like to showcase through a graphic design exploration research poster to demonstrate what parents and peers can do to be aware and help stop it early before it’s too late. My ultimate goal with this research project is to be able to at least influence one parent, student, friend, and or bully to be able to open their eyes and mind more to the effects of cyberbullying and what they can do to be a friend and help prevent it.
