The authors consider how school actions to counter cyberbullying can be informed both by what is known about educational change, and by those who know most about bullying through technology and social media: young people. They argue that this will require the development of new roles and relationships, leading to change in local school community attitudes and beliefs, practices and outcomes. Young people will need to be seen not only as ‘agents of change’ in school settings, but as ‘change partners’ – with youth and student voice contributing significantly to social change.
