The William Penn University Social Media Class students have once again started the Break the Wall Campaign. The campaign is designed to inform and allow participation while learning about cyberbullying; highlighted by one major event coming this spring on April 30th.
April 30th, from 2:00pm to 4:00pm, the students with this campaign will be hosting an event at Smokey Rowe in Oskaloosa, Iowa. This event will focus on public outreach. During this portion of the campaign, there will be a guest speaker who will talk about the effects of cyberbullying and ways to protect yourself against cyberbullying. At the end of this event, there will be a question and answer session where the public will be able to ask questions for the speaker.
The campaign, which is in its fifth year, has been a hope of the students to continue to educate people about the effects of cyberbullying, as well as some possible solutions to the negative energy surrounding some types of social media. Social media is a growing and moving part of society and with that comes cyberbullying, so students in this campaign hope to help prevent and change cyberbullying. They also hope to make people aware of the effects of cyberbullying and resources to go to receive help.
