Each section takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and features interactive resources, videos and a self-learning check. After successfully completing a section, you may provide your e-mail to be entered into a drawing for KindleFire (winner will be notified by e-mail) and to receive your Cyber Savvy Cyber Safe Survey Certificate.
(Please note: The Cyber Savvy Cyber Safe Survey is best viewed on Power Point version 2004 or newer. Some files are large and depending on your internet connection may require a few minutes to download.)
Additional resources are available for parents and students to report bullying or to learn more about how to positively handle bullying in your home, school or community.

Resource for Teens: PBS' It's My Life Bullying content.
A key part of this initiative was to develop a new local program which was comprised of a panel discussion recorded and moderated by Dr. Jennifer Caudle, an anti-bullying expert and an assistant professor at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey
In addition to utilizing our local experts, WQPT called on expansive resources provided by PBS in relationship to this topic including airing the following programs: Enough is Enough: Porn 101 educates about the dangers of and how to protect your children from obtrusive online pornography. Enough is Enough: Predators 101 is about the serious danger of sexual predators on the Internet and how to protect your children. Teaching Channel: A look at three innovative approaches to tackling bullying at school. Enough in Enough: The Evolving Web focuses on the evolving interactive web, social networking and cyber-bullying. Also, committee members were featured on The Cities with Jim Mertens in February to promote the program and share community resources with those who could not or did not wish to join the community conversations.
Two community conversations were held at partner agencies, Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center and Moline Public Library. More than 50 people attended and we had frank, open multi-generational perspectives. Families were encouraged to attend together. The conversations discussed what bullying looks like today and healthy, positive, empowering ways to combat it. Attendees were given the opportunity to complete the Cyber Savvy, Cyber Safe Survey. Books were handed out to the students in attendance. Many of the middle school aged children took books aimed at younger kids indicating to us that they wanted to read it to their younger siblings.
Although the target audience was middle school students, families were encouraged to participate in discussions and events together. This free performance of The Ugly Duckling hosted by Ballet Quad Cities was very successful attracting approximately 200 people.
