Macanović, Nebojša and Stojanović, Ružica

Abstract: Abstract: An increasing number of children and young people are exposed to peer violence via the Internet, but despite this, the fact that it is still not sufficiently recognized as a serious problem in society is worrying. The virtual world gives bullies anonymity, dominance, courage, a sense of security and power. By being involved in the virtual world, children and young people, victims of violence, always experience violence again, and feel helpless and depressed, because they cannot fully influence the violent content. In our research, we were based on secondary school students, because they are the most vulnerable category when it comes to violence on the Internet. The subject of the research includes identifying the presence and forms of cyberbullying among secondary school students in the municipality of Modriča, as well as researching the relationship between the manner of cyberbullying and the educational characteristics of students – the victims of cyberbullying. The results of the research indicate that out of the total number of respondents, 39.7% of them were victims of cyberbullying, and when it comes to educational indicators, the victims of cyberbullying are mostly students with excellent and very good results.

Keywords: violence, cyberbullying, students, school.
