Government laptops are given to Kadjebi teachers

He said they needed to acquire 21st century teaching skills to be relevant to the teaching profession. Mr. Kudese said computer had become very important nowadays since it was accurate, fast and could accomplish many tasks easily. The ICT Co-ordinator said their knowledge in computers would make life easier for them, especially those of them who relied on it to input grades electronically and also for preparing lesson plans.

Under the government’s one teacher, one laptop initiative, 190 instructors in three Senior High Schools (SHSs) in the Kadjebi District of the Oti Region have received laptops. Mr. Nicholas Kudese, the Ghana Education Service’s (GES) Kadjebi District Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Co-ordinator, urged the recipients to use the gadget supplied to them to improve their ICT skills. He stated that the administration wished to transition teachers to the new digital system so that they would not be left behind in the digital age.

He said the laptops had one year insurance cover of GH₵100.00, two-year warranty and that 929 teachers in basic schools in the District would also benefit from the package. Mr. Bernard Osei, Kadjebi Public Relations Officer (PRO) of GES, advised the teachers to be interested in learning ICT because when integrated into lessons, students became more engaged in their work. This is because technology provides different opportunities to make it more fun and enjoyable in terms of teaching the same things in different ways.

Mr. Osei said ICTs were also transformational tools which, when used appropriately, could promote the shift to a learner-centred environment. He asked them to be critical thinkers, analytical, researchers and knowledgeable to teach the current generation students. The PRO said a good teacher needed to possess listening skills, exhibit love for the job, be patient, must love learning and be dedicated to teaching.

Mr. Joy Mensah, a beneficiary, said the initiative was good, timely and beneficial because the device would help him in teaching the students. Mr. Mensah, who teaches Financial Accounting at the Kadjebi-Asato Senior High School (KASEC), said the world had now become a global village, so they could not be left behind in ICT. The cost of one laptop is GH₵1,750.00; the government would pay 70 per cent of the cost, while the beneficiary pays 30 per cent.
