Colleagues from the Open University will start two international research projects about bullying. Project Blurred Lives aims to understand cyberbullying from the youth’s perspective. The name of the second project – Gate-bull - stands for ‘Using a Games approach to Teach children about discriminatory BULLying’. It aims to develop a simulation game in which children can experience and respond to discriminatory bullying scenarios. The game gives feedback on the in-game choices children make. This way children practice intercultural and social skills. Five-hundred children from four countries will participate in this project. We at GEMH-lab are already curious about the results!
