Do you know what SEXTING is?

Posted on Updated on

I am sure you know what TEXTING is but do you also know what SEXTING is?

This word has recently been added to the English dictionary, it’s a stupid nearly un-pronounceable word; but who am I to decide?

What does it mean? It actually means:

According to Wikipedia Sexting is the act of sending sexually explicit messages or photographs, primarily between mobile phones. The term was first popularized in early 21st century, and is a amalgamation of sex and texting, where the latter is meant in the wide sense of sending a text possibly with images.
about.com Sexting is the slang term for the use of a cell phone or other similar electronic device to distribute pictures or video of sexually explicit images. It can also refer to text messages of a sexually-charged nature.
internetslang.com The definition of SEXTING is “Sending sexually explicit texts”

Learn how to Blog using Wordpress.com

Posted on

I have nearly finished writing my course on Blogging using WordPress.com

It is currently 6 sessions long. It will take my students from:

  • Getting signed-up to creating and modifying their initial 2-3 blogs.
  • Linking their posts to Facebook, Twitter and/or LinkedIn.
  • Changing a Post,
  • Saving Draft copy,
  • Adding Tags and Categories and so on.

I am at present teaching two groups and my students seem to have fun. There is a lot of hands-on and it is vital that my students bring their USB-flash drives containing pictures and documents of what they want to publish.

Up to now I have only had one real dilemma; that of explaining the advantage of posts on a blog against the disadvantage of a static website that needs a site-manager to update.

I hope that once we have the Blog up and running my student will see and understand the benefits that being able to instantly adding new posts will have for them.
