The topic being researched was cyberbullying and the effects it can have on adolescent. The participants for the Capstone Project included seven sixth-grade students in a public elementary school located in Monterey County. The capstone project began with a slideshow and a YouTube video. The slideshow and video were used to provide more information on the student’s prior knowledge. After the slideshow and video, the students participated in a game of Kahoot. During the Kahoot game, the students answered true and false questions. After the Kahoot game, the students were presented with an exit slip, where the researcher could analyze what they learned through the project. The projected showed that most students understand what cyberbullying looks like but did not understand the repercussions of cyberbullying. This project connects directly to the researchers’ career because they are hoping to create a positive and supportive classroom environment.
