Become Someone's Hero and Re-Think

Become Someone's Hero and Re-Think:
To show unity, district wide.
To show support for those who have been bullied.
To show that we must stand up for others who need our help.
To create anti-bullying awareness.
To support those fighting through adversity.
We are holding a contest to encourage students to download and use the Rethink app described in this video.  See the attached flyer for more contest details.  One note - the video is from August and says the app is only available for android - that is outdated.  There is a ios version currently available.
What is ReThink?

ReThink is an non-intrusive, innovative, patented software product that stops Cyberbullying before the damage is done. When an adolescent tries to post an of-fensive message on social media, ReThink uses patented context sensitive filtering technology to determine whether or not it’s offensive and gives the adolescent a second chance to reconsider their decision. Research shows that when adolescents are alerted to ReThink their decision, they change their minds 93% of the time. In this internationally acclaimed study, using ReThink, the overall willingness of the average adolescent to post an offensive message reduced from 71% to 4%.
Current solutions that social media have implemented are ineffective, following a STOP, BLOCK, TELL mechanism. Victims are asked to stop what they are doing, block the cyberbully, and tell a parent or guardian. Unfortunately, this approach doesn’t stop the damage before it’s done, places the burden on the victim to stop the cyberbullying, and research has found that 9 out of 10 victims don’t tell anyone that they are being targeted. They suffer in silence.
ReThink provides an important opportunity to adolescents, helping them become good digital citizens. With ReThink allowing adolescents to pause, review, and reconsider their decisions on social media, adolescents learn to make better choices on and off of the internet.
