Harassment among students or the bullying has been the subject of numerous psycho-pedagogical research and interventions, being a focal point of educational policies of past years. Even though it was present in different eras and cultures, aggressiveness now has a new context which is unfolding: the virtual environment. Cybernetic space has become one of the places where learning occurs; this medium had developed a new form of aggressiveness among students called cyberbullying. The virtual environment, as a context of developing the acts of bullying, represents the main characteristic of cyberbullying. We are talking today about harassment among students, taking into consideration its traditional forms, face to face, but also the forms mediated by the technological communication devices. The purpose of this article is to develop a systematic analysis of some relevant research on bullying and cyberbullying, investigating the concepts behind these phenomena. We also wish to offer a comparative perspective of these two hypostases of the aggressiveness to underline the main similarities and differences, as well as the characteristics of the individuals involved.
