25th January 2020
I had just woken up from a 3-hour sleep super pumped and happy to be able to do so.
My nephew was around so it was time for our Aunt-Nephew time only that he had some friends visiting.
We began to play football. I’m not a good player but I can recognize my teammates and my goal post
After the match, I stumbled on a discovery that was shockingly cool. Shocking because I didn’t expect them to tell me and cool because oh well, it’s cool. They shared their Facebook IDs with me Some had funny names like “Frosh” attached to their names. The creativity in these names are very commendable. Let’s just say that if my nephew had done this I wouldn’t have known he’s on Facebook already
This brings me to the question that popped in my mind after reflecting many hours later.
WHO WILL ENLIGHTEN THESE ONES ON DIGITAL LITERACY?
Why am I asking this?
My community is what most people would consider to as
middle/lower classes. Not everyone expect these children to know what social media is not to talk about being on one and even creatively owning the space with names.
I shared a bit of the importance of social media with them and how they can use it to share what they do and learn alongside. We still have a long way to go but we start from here.
Btw, what does “Frosh” mean? They didn’t know it
