One Teacher One Laptop: No more writing of Lesson notes by Teachers -Bawumia

LESSON LAP

The Vice President of the Republic of Ghana has said that teachers shall not write lesson notes again after they have received their TM 1  (Teachers Mate 1)  Laptops.

The Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has launched and handed over 350,000 laptops under the ‘One Teacher One Laptop’ programme in fulfilment of the government’s pledge to equip Ghana’s teachers with the requisite ICT skills to prepare the next generation for the Fourth Industrial revolution.

At a brief but colourful ceremony at the campus of the St Mary’s Senior High School, Accra on Friday 3rd September 2021 Dr Bawumia, assisted by the Minister for Education, Hon Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum; the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service, Prof Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa; and the leadership of Teacher Unions, handed over the first of these laptops, known as the TM1 (Teachers Mate 1) to the 71 teachers of the school.

”This shift to ICT-based teaching and learning has many benefits for both teachers and students, according to experts in education.”

”With the curriculum materials already installed onto the laptops, the suggested lesson notes prepared by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) can be downloaded onto the laptops and used to end the burdensome task of writing lesson notes into notebooks.” He said.

”This would perfectly be in tandem with the fifth skill and competence under the new standards-based curriculum, the promotion of digital literacy.”

”The laptops would also help in the field of assessment. The filling of School-Based Assessment, report cards, cumulative records, and the building of learners’ individual portfolios would become easier if each teacher owns a laptop.” He indicated.
