Psicol. Esc. Educ.




This study characterizes the cyberbullying among students in Santiago, Chile (2010). A self-report questionnaire (Internet Experiences Questionnaire) was completed by 1,357 students from 7th to 12th grade. The sample design was non-probability and based on quota sampling. The data were weighted by gender, grade and type of school dependency. Among the respondents 50% were men, average age 15 years (SD = 1.82 years). The results show that 11.4% reported having been the victim of some form of cyberbullying and 12.5% victimizer. No significant differences were found between the gender, grade or type of school dependency of the victims. In the role of perpetrator, boys reported a higher frequency in compare to girls. We conclude that cyberbullying is a phenomenon that exists in Chilean reality, and it is mostly-homogenous in its presentation. Given this, new challenges and questions regarding the consequences of cyberbullying for students and the educational system are raised.
