Outing and Trickery: Sharing someones secret or embarrassing information online. Tricking someone into revealing secrets or embarrassing information which is then shared online

Nancy Willards 8 Forms of CyberbullyingEvery school should have an AUP that outlines what is and is not the permitted use of the schools technology and computer systems.
Parents and students should read and sign the AUP together.
The AUP document will help keep students safe while accessing the internet in school. Acceptable Use Policy
Teachers should advise students that their school internet records can be searched.
The school district has the right to search students files on the computer if there is suspicion that the AUP has been broken.
AUP should be discussed in school and at home that way students are less likely to break the rules.
Teachers should teach students about cyber safety. This information should be integrated into the curriculum so that students are aware of this problem.
Guidelines for EducatorsTeachers should provide a way for students to privately report Cyberbullying. Setting this precaution in place lets students know that there is a safe place to share Cybersafety violations.
If students are aware of this, they will feel safer about reporting this inappropriate behavior.
Students who take part in Cyberbullying might be less likely to perform this act if they know that there school is aware of the problem and they could get into serious trouble. Guidelines for Educators

Suggestions for School Districts. . . .
After rehearsal for the school play, Nicole remains in the auditorium by herself to practice dance moves, forgetting that the video camera is still on. The next day you and a friend discover the video of Nicole, which contains some silly and embarrassing footage. You decide to create a fake Facebook page for Nicole that contains some of the footage, and you invite the whole school to be her friend. The video of Nicole dancing becomes a school-wide joke, and people start to add visual and sound effects that make Nicole look even funnier. Before long, the video begins to spread around the Internet and Nicole receives hundreds of harassing messages.
