Principal of Jackson College of Education (JCE), Theodosia Jackson, says Ghanaian graduates have what it takes to apply technology in solving societal problems, especially environmental challenges.
She has therefore encouraged young graduates to find novel ways of using their knowledge and skills to contribute to the development of society.
“You are the ones who will bring solutions to environmental concerns, climate change, conservation of natural resources, and development of alternative energy sources,” Mrs. Jackson told graduates of JCE at a ceremony in Kumasi.
A total of 2,266 students graduated from various academic programs, including French Education.
Council Chairman of the College, Anthony Gyasi-Fosu, encouraged graduates to serve tirelessly wherever they find themselves.
“We need you to shape the future of education, especially through the use of technology. We need you because your perspective – the sum of your intellect and your life experiences – will contribute immensely to making our country eradicate poor education and illiteracy,” he stated.
According to Mr. Gyasi-Fosu, the College has unwaveringly supported the incorporation of IT into graduate training, and that strategy has been validated by the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Education and technology are not worlds apart, actually, they are closely knit, and it will be wise to upgrade and impart lives,” he noted.
In his valedictory speech, Amos Ansong Nyamekye expressed gratitude and promised to uphold the values of integrity, respect, stewardship, discipline, and lifelong learning for the full realization of their development.
“It is now our responsibility to showcase the training we have acquired to the world,” he said.
