About Teachers Laptop Distribution
The laptop project is one of the measures by government to promote digital literacy among teachers and students, Ghana Education Service will organize in-serve training for teachers on digital literary.
The laptops will change classroom circumstances, making it easier for teachers to engage students in substantive, collaborative, project-based work. Laptops will make planning and group communication easier for the teachers.
Classroom dynamics will change when each student get their own laptop every day. Computer based work – such as writing and revising, printing, and sharing or collecting data will become one of many activities to happen in the classroom. Laptops also fit smoothly into group work for example, students collaborating on a written piece or sharing data can pass one or several computers among themselves, contributing to multiple aspects of a project rather than working on isolated units.
Teachers become more able to engage students in inquiry-oriented, project-based learning. Continuous access, for both teachers and students, to computer-based tools like word processors and data analysis programs facilitates this kind of long-term, in-depth teaching and learning.
Telecommunications, should always be accessible from home and from school to provide an important mode of communications for the teachers
The aim of the laptop distribution initiative is to help teachers get abreast with IT advancement in the education sector and to help in researching topics and gathering more facts on unknown or topics that the teacher has less knowledge about.
Teachers are therefore to pay 30% of the amount while the government pays the remaining 70%. The actual cost of one laptop is GH₵1550.
