André Hilbig entwickelt in diesem Buch ein Konzept zum Erwerb informatischer Kompetenzen zur Verhinderung von Cybermobbing. Dazu untersucht der Autor die hinter dem Cybermobbing liegenden Informatikstrukturen und leitet aus den Informatikfachstrukturen die Elemente ab, die Möglichkeiten zur Erklärung dieses Phänomens beinhalten. Es wird deutlich, dass informatische Grundlagen unabdingbar sind, wenn Schülerinnen und Schüler Gestaltungsfähigkeiten entwickeln sollen, die über die Bedien- und Nutzungsebene hinausgehen.
