Ghana VP calls for teaching innovation
Ghana’s Vice President, Papa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur, says ICTs are needed in schools to meet new labour requirements in future.
Speaking at this year’s National Teachers’ Awards Ceremony in Kumasi, he said teachers in these modern times were not training pupils only for the Ghanaian market, but also for the globe.
Vice President Amissah-Arthur said the world in which teachers imparted knowledge had now changed tremendously due to advances in ICT and transportation, and pledged government’s support in ICT education by providing all Junior High Schools and teachers with laptop computers.
“Just last week, Parliament approved a proposal to set-up computer laboratories and ICT learning centres in 250 Senior High Schools (SHS). Government has been standing by teachers to making teaching and learning easier,” Amissah-Arthur said.
