    Combating Bullying…There’s an App for That

    These days it seems like there is an app for just about anything. There are apps that are just for fun, like Flappy Bird or Angry Birds. Then there are the ones that are a little more useful — apps that help you study, learn new things or communicate with family and friends. There are also a variety of apps created to combat bullying.

    STOPit (Apple and Android) – STOPit has four main features. The STOPit button allows users to capture offensive material and send it to the adults they preselected. The HELPit button is there for victims of bullying to connect with resources and a crisis support network. The FRIENDit button is for witnesses to report incidents of bullying. Finally, the REPORTit button allows users to share information with law enforcement officials.
