by admin

Is called Elisa and it is the web platform born from the collaboration between Ministry of Education e University of Florence to counter the phenomena of bullying he was born in cyberbullismo. Elisa has existed since 2018, following the entry into force of the Law 71 of 2017 and of “Guidelines for the prevention and fight against cyberbullying” emanating from Ministry of Education. The platform has two specific tasks: to monitor the two phenomena and to train Italian teachers on these issues through e-learning. Elisa’s last monitoring was carried out during the 2020-2021 school year. The report shows that bullying and cyberbullying are still very common among young Italians. Specifically, during the 2020-2021 school year, 22.3% of upper secondary school students were bullied by peers (19.4% occasionally and 2.9% systematically ), while 18.2% actively took part in episodes of bullying towards a partner or a partner.

For what concern cyberbullismo, 8.4% of students admitted to having suffered episodes of this type, of which 7.4% occasionally and 1% systematically, while 7% actively took part in cyberbullying: 6, 1% occasionally and 0.9% systematically. Furthermore, 7% of students appear to have suffered bullying due to their ethnic background, 6.4% homophobic bullying and 5.4% bullying due to their own disability.

The monitoring also shows that a high percentage of schools have equipped themselves with “referent teachers” for these issues (83.4% of secondary school teachers, 76% of primary school and 74% of secondary school), but only 13% of students confess that they know these figures and their role in schools. Although critical issues remain to be addressed, the report highlights how the prevention and contrast activities have begun to be perceived by educational institutions as a systemic action that is being consolidated. The monitoring activity envisaged two moments: in the first phase (May / June 2021), female students and secondary school students were involved. In the next phase (June / July 2021), the primary and secondary school teachers. The monitoring was attended by 314,500 students attending 765 state secondary schools of the second grade. In addition to the students, the monitoring activities also involved 46,250 teachers from 1,849 state educational institutions.
