Excellent presentation.  The video in the beginning really makes you feel what it feels like to be bullied - as if you were actually in that situation.  The statistics also gives a real sense of the seriousness of the matter.  It's presented in a manner that would attract and hold the attention of those in that age bracket.

I thought the idea is excellent. We just began an Upstander program at our school to get kids to stop being bystanders when it comes to social awareness, responsibility and then bullying. The video itself brings awareness to the issue, but unfortunately, the power is somewhat lost with the overly-text filled slides and quiz. If there were less text and maybe no quiz, and instead a call to action or larger take away may have been more powerful.

Technical Remarks:

No technological issues.

This resource is designed to raise awareness about bullying and to give the audience a deeper understanding of the related social dynamics.  The video format is compelling and will engage a wide variety of learners.  Follow the technical requirements suggestion to download and play the media from your computer instead of over an internet connection for the best experience.
