The Malta Union of Teachers launched an anti cyber bullying campaign and urged teachers not to interact with pupils on social media.

Addressing a press conference, MUT senior vice president Marco Bonnici said the union was urging teachers to be more responsible when using the internet.

The proposals were listed in a document which the union will be distributing to all schools, he added.

These include not communicating with student's via email or mobile phone as well as ensuring that passwords were kept secret and safe.

In cases of ongoing cyber bullying, the union urged teachers not to fight back, but to report any incidents to the child and educational authorities.
