Session Delivery

The session began with an opening prayer and singing of the Itsekiri anthem. This was led by the participants.

Oritsegbubemi Diden anchored the session by first asking participants to define a computer. Some participants made attempts to give the answer. Then he asked them to turn on the computer in front of them. He described the “on” bottom and they were able to locate it to turn it on.

The focus of the session was on how to use Microsoft packages; particularly Microsoft Word. The first task given to the participants was to type “I am a boy”. This is to make them know how to make use of the cap lock and space bar. To replace the boy with a girl, they were directed to use the backspace to erase the boy and replace it with a girl.

The second task was for them to type what they love about Itsekiri NextGen. Some of the things they wrote down were;

  • I love the environment
  • I love Itsekiri NextGen because they teach us good morals
  • I love it because it encourages us a lot.
  • At Itsekiri NextGen, they teach us what we don’t know
  • I love the way the volunteers interact with the participants.

 The third task was for them to type suggestions that will help Itsekiri NextGen improve. Some suggestions they typed were;

  • They want a courtesy visit to the Olu of Warri.
  • A visit to the zoo.
  • They want to be given more books.
  • They want to improve on the Itsekiri dialect.
  • They want more knowledge on how to generate funds.
  • They want to visit an orphanage home.

The participants were taught how to highlight and change the style and font size of what they have typed. They were also taught how to make use of shortcuts like “Ctrl + to save, ”Ctrl + Z” to undo,  “Ctrl + C”to copy, “Ctrl + V” to paste E.t.c.

Other key activities during the digital session 

The participants were able to practice all they were taught before the session ended.

What went wrong 

  • Some participants are yet to return the books they borrowed.
