Nearly one out of three boys and girls have been bullied at least once at school and a similar proportion have been affected by physical violence, according to the UNESCO report “Behind the numbers: ending school violence and bullying”, released in 2019 Education World Forum. Overall, says the report, physical bullying is the biggest problem in most regions, but in Europe and North America psychological bullying is the most common, while online bullying is gradually rising.
Bulling must be addressed because it severely affects children’s mental health, quality of life and academic achievement. All students have the right to school safety and it is up to educators to adopt bullying prevention measures in order to ensure that students feel safe and confident within the school environment.
T-Games is a European project aiming to reduce and smooth the problem of school bullying, starting its prevention from an early age. Its innovative approach lies in gamified learning and the gamification method that will be utilized in several stages. Firstly, to train educational practitioners and parents on how to address bullying, and secondly to allow children to tackle and understand the topic according to their needs and abilities.
