The Dangers of Sexting: What Teens Need to Know (cc)

In a recent survey, one in five teens admitted to sending nude or semi-nude photos or videos and more than half said it was common for explicit photos and text messages to be passed around among friends. View teens' real stories: a girl recounts how an explicit picture of her became widely circulated in her school; a boy expresses regret at posting pictures of a girlfriend after they had broken up. A law enforcement official drives home the legal consequences of sexting. Using a peer-to-peer approach, teens talk about the importance of resisting pressures to engage in sexting. They emphasize that you can't assume that anything you send or post is going to remain private; that you can't change your mind once something is out there in cyberspace; and that what you may think is a harmless joke may be interpreted very differently by someone else. Includes a Bonus feature for Parents and Teachers: Elizabeth Schroeder, an internationally recognized trainer, consultant and author in sexuality education, provides information that every parent and teacher needs to know about why teens sext and what consequences they face.

From One Second to the Next

Filmmaker and documentarian Werner Herzog (Aguirre: The Wrath of God, Grizzly Man) has directed a short film on the dangers of texting and driving. From One Second to the Next looks at how four lives have been impacted by texting-related accidents. Created for AT&T's "It Can Wait" campaign, which has the backing of all the major US carriers, the documentary expands on the TV spots that Herzog also produced. Among the subjects of the film are Xzavier, a young boy who was left paralyzed by a car accident caused by texting, and Chandler Gerber, who killed three people while reading a text behind the wheel of a van. All of the documented individuals have featured prominently in AT&T's TV spots, which were also directed by Herzog. The 35-minute film is, as you'd expect from Herzog, intelligently shot and produced, but at times can be very difficult to watch. Chandler Gerber's vivid account of the accident he caused is particularly harrowing; it shows a different kind of pain to that of the victims and their families, a longing regret that's perhaps more relatable to many.
