The government through the Ministry of Education is preparing to replace textbooks with laptops in Senior High Schools across the country.
The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, who announced this, said textbooks and other teaching and learning materials would be installed on the laptops to be used during lessons.
Speaking at the 60th Anniversary celebration of the Hohoe Evangelical Presbyterian Senior High School, Dr. Bawumia said the initiative which would be implemented before the end of 2023.
He noted that it is aimed at preparing the students to fit into the global village.
“If this country must move forward in the right direction, we must invest in education which is the only platform for preparing nation builders for tomorrow.
“The Minister for Education has also assured me that this year, we’ll start the replacement textbooks with laptops that have textbooks embedded in Senior high Schools,” he said on Saturday.
This new initiative comes after the government launched the One-teacher One-laptop project on Friday, September 3, 2021.
The programme was meant to give Senior High School teachers modern materials to facilitate teaching and learning and as of December 11, 2021, Ghana Education Service reported that 80% of laptops meant for teachers had been distributed.
