Social Media for Teens

Social Media for Teens is a new initiative by Athlone Living Lab.During one of the mom2.0 sessions one of the ladies brought her daughter of twelve years old along to sit in.That is where i got the vision of doing a Social Media class with teens from our community. I immediately invited her to bring along some of her friends to come and find out more about Social Media.

The turn out was great. We got about twenty teens from the community. They were naturally exited to learn more about Social Media. Times have certainly changed.I was just thinking back to when i was growing up.We did not have access to a computer and to the the internet.I am so grateful for what I have learn about Social Media over the last year.We now have a platform from which to teach these kids all about Social Media.It is such an honor to give to give these kids something which=h i did not have when growing up.One thing i also realize is that these are kids that are at risk of going into gangsterism or doing drugs.

Our first session was great.As introduction we registered them all to gmail as we are going to have to add them to a blog that we are going to create for them.I am looking forward to what is going to be the outcome of and from this project.Watch this space…

Wow! Craig did you ever think, a few years ago those kids who were still babes then,would be idolising you.They feel honoured to be taught by you, as I heard the twins argueing who knows you best.They all excited for their next classes. So proud of you and your patience.GOD BLESS.
