Microsoft to support Ghanaian teacher who coaches MS Office through blackboard
Information and communication technology (ICT) teacher Richard Appiah Akoto shared a photo of himself using a blackboard to show his students how to use Microsoft Word.
"Teaching of ICT in Ghana's school is very funny," Akoto said in a Facebook post.
The 33-year-old Richard Appiah Akoto, known on Facebook as Owura Kwadwo Hottish, said he draws the screen for students, as he has in the past, because a national exam they must pass at the ages of 14 and 15 to move on to high school includes a section on technology, according to Quartz Africa.
Soon after his photos and exceptional drawing skills became viral on social media, entrepreneur Rebecca Enonchong tweeted to Microsoft Africa, highlighting that Hottish was teaching how to use Microsoft product without actually having access to it.
After the tweet reached Microsoft, the company pledged to send Akoto a computer and to give him access to free professional development resources.
Supporting teachers to enable digital transformation in education is at the core of what we do. We will equip Owura Kwadwo with a device from one of our partners, and access to our MCE program & free professional development resources on https://t.co/dJ6loRUOdg
