Anti-Bullying Movement – How an Online Learning Course Can Combat Bullies
There’s no sugar-coating it: getting bullied is the worst. It can mess with your self-worth and make going to school absolutely dreadful. Believe me, I’ve been there. I was always too short, too loud, too opinionated, too this and too that. Throughout the entirety of my K-12 school years, I was picked on for being different. At that time in my life, I had always wished things were different. I wished I could change the way others viewed me, and oftentimes wished I could have changed who I was to fit in better.
As unfortunate as it may be, we are all too familiar with bullying. Whether it happened to you a friend or your child, the damaging effects of bullying can be long-term and difficult to overcome. That is why it is so important to stop it in its tracks. The anti-bully movement is absolutely necessary to combat bullies, break the bystander-effect, and instill confidence back into the students overcoming these struggles.
How Leaders of Evolution Helps the Anti-Bully Movement
That’s exactly where Leaders of Evolution comes in! We are an online learning company that is fiercely passionate about education and the power of young leaders. Some of the topics you can expect your students to discuss are the importance of self-awareness, teamwork, and gratitude. By implementing a social-emotional curriculum into your students’ day-to-day life, you show them how valuable their feelings are, increasing their likelihood to value the feelings of others. Student mental health is so important and should never be placed second to traditional learning curriculums. Sure, math and English are important subjects, but they’re not very useful when it comes to the anti-bully movement.
One way that Leaders of Evolution helps to foster a positive learning environment is through the use of peer to peer activities and project-based learning. We strongly believe that building healthy and positive in-class connections is the best way to participate in the anti-bully movement. Committed to our clients’ satisfaction and their students’ overall well-being, we promise an inclusive learning experience that caters to every students’ individual learning needs.
Using the 4 C’s to Take Part in the Anti-Bully Movement
Each of our online learning courses follows our 4 C’s learning curriculum. Leaders of Evolution believes that these four traits are necessary and useful in any possible environment, especially in the anti-bully movement.
At Leaders of Evolution, we define competence as relating to the learner’s skills, whether they be technical (what) or tactical (how) and is intrinsically linked to performance outcomes. A competent student can easily spot when someone is feeling uncomfortable in a situation and knows exactly what to do to fix it before it gets worse.
Confidence relates to the development of positive self-worth and recognition that the learner can use the knowledge gained to influence themselves and others. This trait is necessary for both allies of the anti-bully movement and victims of bullying themselves. Students will need confidence to avoid succumbing to the bystander effect and those who have been bullied will need it in order to maintain positive self-worth.
Our team at Leaders of Evolution believes that character deals with how the learner develops a sense of self-awareness and behaviours such as empathy, integrity and responsibility within the communities they apply their learning. Students with good character would never take part in bullying and are constantly driven to do whatever they can to stop it from taking place.
We define connectedness as relating to how the learner is able to establish and foster positive working relationships within the environments they apply their learning. Connectedness is all about friendship and teamwork. Displaying strong connectedness is a great sign that students are a part of the anti-bully movement.
Creating a Better & Bully-less Future with Leaders of Evolution
Years after my battles with bullies, I am grateful for the experiences, both good and bad, that have shaped me into the person I am today. I no longer wish to change anything about myself. I have reached new levels of self-confidence and emotional intelligence. The only thing I wish now is that my school would have courses that aligned with the anti-bullying movement, so I could have overcome these struggles faster or prevented them altogether. But there’s no changing my past. We can only control our future. So, let’s make a better future for your students, together! With Leaders of Evolution, you can guarantee a safe learning environment for your valued students and provide them with the skills necessary to be a strong ally of the anti-bully movement.
