Study of Online Behaviour

The smartphone as a portal: As we spend increasing amounts of our daily lives immersed in technology, we need to understand how there can differences and similarities between behaviour in cyberspace and behaviour we are more familiar with.

In this short video, Dr Ciarán Mc Mahon, Research & Development Co-ordinator of the CyberPsychology Research Centre at the RCSI Institute of Leadership, introduces some of the thematic areas of interest to the new research centre - cyberbullying and leadership online.

The bottom line is that we should consider our devices like a gateway to a different dimension, where different rules apply, and protect our selves with that in mind.
