Help is on the way for students to stamp out bullying by using a cellphone. Blackboard Incorporated is offering a program called, “Tip Text” to every public and private K–12 in the U.S. And the best part – it’s FREE.
Here’s how it works: Students who are bullied or witness bullying can send a text message to a special number, to report the incident. Someone from the school can respond immediately to quash the situation.
The program also aids schools in documenting incidents of bullying.
For more information on the program, visit Blackboard’s website.
