Helping youth navigate cyberbullying with Amber Mac and MediaSmarts

In honour of Pink Shirt Day, Amber Mac, technology expert, sits down with Matthew Johnson, Director of Education at MediaSmarts to talk about one of the biggest challenges facing youth today: cyberbullying.

As we continue to spend more time online than ever before - whether working, learning or socializing - it's even more important to provide youth with the tools and skills they need to participate in our digital world in a safe and friendly way.

Check out the full interview for guidance on helping youth deal with cyberbullying and tips to help them safely participate in social media and our digital world.
