VIRTUAL EVENT: How the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted school bullying and cyberbullying
05 May 2021, 1:00 pm–2:00 pm
In this webinar, Joshua Goodman will discuss new facts about the prevalence and mechanisms behind school bullying and cyberbullying.
This event is free.
Bullying has tremendous social costs. In any given year, one-fifth of US high schoolers report being bullied at school.
In this event, Joshua will explore research that looks into new facts about the prevalence and mechanisms behind school bullying and cyberbullying. The project used publicly available Google Trends online search data.
The findings may provide insight into how schools can reduce bullying in a post-pandemic world.
This webinar is co-organised by Quantitative Social Science (QSS) and the Centre for Longitudinal Studies at the UCL Institute of Education. The event is part of the weekly QSS seminar series.
