An appeal has been made by the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) to the government to fasten the process of providing ICT facilities in basic schools. Paul Asamanaba Apanga, President, GNAT explained that government needs to do still more for providing/ introducing ICT to the school curricula. Additionally, the President mentioned that there is still lack of ICT knowledge amongst some teachers, which needs improvement.
ICT was introduced into the school curriculum two years ago with the West African Examination Council designing programmes for it. The teachers have reportedly mentioned that effort is being put to cover all the aspects of curriculum but implementation lags because of inadequate or non-existent facilities. The main idea behind introducing ICT in schools was to increase the ICT awareness of the Ghanaian school going population and to make Ghanaians, in the long run, appreciate the need to use ICT to solve problems.
