Katie and Caitlin interviewed Alison Cottrell; one of the speakers at the Being Proactive with Cyber Bullying session. During the session Alison and Blair (the other presenter) informed the attendees on how to approach cyber bullying in schools. They recommended monitoring the use of social media in schools by using a sign-in sheet, by being professional and to inform parents of what they are implementing with their cyber bullying policy in school. They also encouraged open discussion within the group to share ideas on how they deal with the issue. In the interview Alison spoke about how she believes teachers should be trained to deal with cyber bullying and what she learned from the session and speaking with others.
