The school bullying phenomenon cannot be underestimated because its effects on the students and their families are devastating. It has become an epidemic in our society and this fact has prompted a variety of studies across Europe and globally. The main objective of the SONET-BULL project is to develop a training platform that will provide teachers, teacher trainers and other stakeholders with accredited training material on school bullying, and enable them share their experiences with peers. In this project, we propose to combine modern pedagogical approaches (eLearning and peer learning) with crowdsourcing and widely used technological means (Internet, social networking, mobiles) in order to provide timely and continuous support to the entire community of stakeholders in dealing with school bullying. To create the conditions of a serene learning and efficiently manage the problem of bullying, it is necessary to foster tight cooperation between all key stakeholders, to whom this project is addressed:
- Teachers’ educators and trainers;
- School principals, counsellors and psychologists;
- Parent associations;
- Regional and local educational authorities;
The project aims to achieve the following concrete outcomes:
- Good practices, references, legal framework, case studies regarding bullying
- Definition of skills and competences required to deal with bullying
- Specification of learning outcomes and assessment criteria
- A peer learning methodology for dealing with school bullying
- Digital training content uploaded by stakeholders trained in the project
- A social networking peer learning platform
- A SONET-BULL Guide on future exploitation and viability
The DAISSy research group (http://daissy.eap.gr) of the Hellenic Open University organizes the International Conference on Anti-Bullying Practices on Tuesday, September 20, 2016, during hours 9.30 – 17.00 at the AMALIA HOTEL, 10 Amalias Av., Athens (located opposite to the National Gardens).
