  • Working with Students - The Benefits and Challenges of Living in a Cyber-World by Lee Burton

    If we are to work with students about the benefits and challenges of living in a cyber-world we need to use all of the wonderful resources that the world offers. I am an avid supporter of resources that speak directly to students. Obviously, as one of the writers of the study guide and the manager of the video clips on Best Enemies and having seen how students respond to it excitedly and positively in forums I have run I am keen to enhance and extend its impact.

  • North Shore Times - "Pillow-talking bully girls"

    TEENAGE girls think nothing of taking their mobile phones to bed and tucking them under their pillows to receive messages in the night.

    Former Killara High School student Lee-Ann Simon said girls wanted to know what was happening among their friends before they got to school.

    Girls were also more likely than boys to be cyber bullies, posting hurtful and untrue messages on Facebook and using phones and the internet to harass their enemies.
