CyberZoo: It’s Nothing Personal

by Melanie Hampton & Courtney Kessler-Jeffrey
directed by Nathan Kessler-Jeffrey

It started as a joke: a few well-placed words, a blurry picture and Mackenzie’s Everwood Zoo blog is a success! Then Amanda starts at Everwood High, is unknowingly added to the blog, and a school-wide rush of bullying and harassment begins. While Mackenzie’s posts embarrass Amanda about her body and her interests, other students make difficult decisions about the environment they want in their school. CyberZoo: It’s Nothing Personal examines the consegquences of online behavior and body-shaming while helping student make positive choices to end cyberbullying and harassment.

Education Goals:

  • Cyberbullying prevention
  • Understanding the consequences of harassment
  • Personal and social responsibility
  • Positive body image
