Dr. Justin Patchin, of the University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire, has co-authored a book focusing on preventing and responding to cyberbullying. Wednesday, he shared that advice to middle and high school students at Loyal.
Dr. Patchin also talked about popular social media websites teens use and tips to make sure they protect their online integrity.
