Hur omfattande är e-mobbning på ett IT-gymnasium?

Abstract [en]

With the very fast development within the area of information technology and the fact that the youth of today are very quick to learn about the new technology, a threat has developed. The technology can be misused in several ways aiming at causing other individuals damage, among other things bullying. Since bullying to a large extent takes place in school among children and young people, I have chosen to carry out a survey about how widespread e-bullying is. I chose to do the survey on a computer - and technology intensive IT upper secondary school, where each pupil has access to a portable computer with wireless Internet. Having in mind that I work at an IT upper secondary school, it was quite natural to choose precisely an IT upper secondary school, but because of that those students probably use the new technology more frequently than other young people in general. The issue became thus. ”How common is it with e-bullying at an IT upper secondary school?” and also ”Is it more common with e-bullying than traditional bullying?” The survey's main aspects were to let the students reply on a quantitative questionnaire that was placed on a web platform, which they reached on the Internet. More or less 50% of the school's students replied on the questionnaire and each surely distributed over the classes 1 to 3, with a bigger percentage of girls than of boys. The survey showed that it was not particularly common with bullying through electronic mediums compared with traditional ways. Only 21% of the students that gave themselves out as being bullied (31 % of all that been asked) stated that this happened through e-bullying of some kind. On the wide question if they thought that it was common with bullying on the Internet, 36,6 % replied that it was very common or quite common. When they got the question about if it was common with bullying via SMS/MMS 17% replied that it was very common or quite common. As to the question of ”What is the most occurring the bullying way, according to your experience?” only 5,6% replied with any off the alternatives SMS/MMS, MSN/Messenger, other chat, Communities or other from the Internet. When I compared my survey with the one that Friends did, I saw that it is not more common with e-bullying at an IT upper secondary school than any other upper secondary school and that it is not more common with e-bullying than traditional bullying. Instead it is much more common with traditional bullying than e-bullying.
