The Management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) has put on hold the planned ICT training for teachers in connection with the One Teacher One Laptop initiative.
The training was scheduled to take place on 16th February 2022 but the GES said in a statement released on Friday February 11 that “The GES will like to inform you that the online ICT training in connection with the One Teacher One Laptop initiative scheduled for 16th February 2022 has been put on hold.
“In collaboration with KA Technologies (KAT) and Microsoft, Ghana Education Service will have further deliberations and discussions to come with a new date and timeline.”
The One Teacher One Laptop initiative was launched by the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to improve teaching and learning performances towards attaining the Sustainable Development Goal Four.
Dr Bawumia said teachers were indispensable to building the human capacity of the nation and government was committed to providing the requisite ICT tools and infrastructure to achieve education transformation and socio-economic development.
He noted that the Fourth Industrial Revolution was highly dependent on ICT skills and knowledge, therefore, the government would equip teachers to access teaching and learning resources to improve performance.
