A number of teachers have to improvise to get their pupils a basic understanding of the things they teach them.
One ICT teacher has literally gone back to the drawing board to teach pupils in his class how to use a computer.
Making do with the resources available to him and determined not to let his charges fall behind, the teacher sketched an average Microsoft Word document on the chalkboard.
The parts of the window are labelled, enabling the students to get a fair idea of the various parts of a typical Word document.
Owura, whose bio notes that he is a former student of Kumasi Academy and currently studies at the University of Education, posted the pictures of the improvised ICT lesson on his Facebook page with the caption “Teaching of ICT in Ghana’s school is very funny. ICT on the board paa. I love ma students so have to do wat will make them understand Wat am teaching.”
While some Facebookers have praised his ingenuity in the face of the lack of resources, others have expressed dismay at the conditions pupils in rural Ghana have to deal with in their pursuit of knowledge.
