ABSU final year student trains youth on high-tech activities
A final year student of Abia State University (ABSU), Uturu, Odoemena Chinonso has launched his new initiative, “Teens can blog.”
Odoemena, a political science graduate, said the initiative would advance the technological development of teenagers, as it has the capacity to mentor and expose them to high-tech activities, ranging from coding, developing AI’s, creating original writing and visual contents, developing websites and social media exploitations.
This, he added, will help and equip them with necessary skills enough to access global activities and become great leaders of their generation.
The Guardian learnt that over 256 teenagers were in attendance at the programme that was done online.
They were trained on content writing, and blogging style and also encouraged to become good, creative and prolific writers with original contents.
This will in the long run be an avenue to assist the Federal Government in curbing the menace of fake news and plagiarism in Nigeria, Odoemena said.
Speaking with The Guardian after the training exercise, Nicholas Josemaria, a secondary school student of Florin High School, Ejigbo Lagos and an active participant of “Teens can blog,” e-learning programme, said he has sufficient knowledge on blogging and original content creation.
He said, “I have been made to understand properly without any iota of doubt that as a teen, my age cannot be a barrier in influencing and impacting the society; as a young person, I have come to terms with importance of curbing the menace of fake news and promoting original contents.”
