Achieving ICT Literacy & Proficiency in the Rural Primary and Secondary Schools in Ghana
In this project the interventionists are are of the view that in order to be productive members as well as responsible world citizens of African society, the next generation of leaders requires a full suite of knowledge and skills to compete in national, international, and global markets. This affordance is made possible by the knowledge base in the STEM and STEAM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics). However, access to computers and computer accessories for several children in Ghana remain an illusion at best.
Truly ICT (Internet Computing Technology) – fosters research, discovery, communication, collaboration, and idea exchange among the other disciplines (May & Abreh, 2017). The conveners of this research, Dr. Eldonna L. May and Dr. Might Kojo Abreh seek to bring an end to a regime where children learn about ICT without having access to computers, by identifying hotspots for this need and filling the places with modest amount of computers. Furthermore, the project has in its backbone the CPD for teachers in the rural setting to help them teach appropriate content and make practicals possible. Our ultimate Goal is to procure, and distribute computers; and empower classroom teachers who will use them to teach with the view to exposing children in these rural schools to ICT literacies.
