New generation of students must deal with abuse on social media

High school students join groups on social networks



Feeling depressed and ashamed, D did not go to school and avoided friends. A playful girl, D became close-mouthed and received bad marks for her schoolwork. After discovering her problems, her parents took her to see a psychiatrist.

Nguyen Dinh Hoa, a literature teacher at Tran Phu High School, said he had witnessed many similar cases in his teaching life. 

One student of his two years ago suddenly suffered from depression. “He was a good student and very dynamic. He participated in all extracurricular activities of the class and school. Other students hated and slandered him, saying he tried to show off to get good marks from teachers,” the teacher explained. 

The students not only spoke ill against him in the class, but also on Facebook. As a result, he did not dare talk to anyone.

The ‘new-generation violence’ is even more dangerous than physical abuse. “Teachers can discover activities of physical abuse and discipline the culprits. But it is difficult to discover the new-generation violence and this will have a long-term impact on students’ lives and study.

Hoa said the ‘new-generation violence’ is even more dangerous than physical abuse. “Teachers can discover activities of physical abuse and discipline the culprits. But it is difficult to discover the new-generation violence and this will have a long-term impact on students’ lives and study,” he said.

“If teachers and families cannot discover students’ psychological problems, the consequences will be very serious,” he warned.

A high school teacher in Hanoi said nearly all secondary and high school students join groups on social networks. The students share the same habits and hobbies and usually exchange views on different issues. Social media also now serves as the rendezvous for students to offend each other.

A team of researchers from the Da Nang University of Education and Hanoi University of Education conducted a survey on school violence. They found that 19.3 percent of 500 surveyed students from one state-owned and one private school bullied and slandered each other through messages, images, video clips and electronic devices, while 16.7 percent were once victims of school violence.

Nguyen Thi Bich Hanh, a university lecturer, a member of the research team, pointed out that many students do not know that the arbitrary posting of other people’s images and videos without their consent is a violation of people’s privacy.
