Four hundred Senior High Schools have been selected across the ten regions for the implementation of a Senior High School Internet Access Project.Speaking at the launch of the project in Accra, yesterday, the Minister for Education, Ambassador Lee Ocran, explained that the essence of the project was to provide internet access for all Senior High Schools to aid teaching and learning.
Ambassador Ocran was of the view that ICT would provide students with hands-on learning activities and technical skills that would help in the improvement of their performance as well as diversify teaching methods and increase educational resources while giving them an added advantage in their communication skills.
The Education Minister called on the Ghana Education Service (GES) to ensure that appropriate organisational structures were put in place to give way to the effective integration of ICT in Senior High Schools as well as issue appropriate guidelines on the use of the internet in the schools.
“To the teachers, I urge you to monitor the activities of the students during the usage of the internet and encourage them to use the facility for healthy knowledge imparting activities”, the Minister added.
Madam Mwiyeria urged the students to take advantage of the project and acquire more knowledge which would be useful in their education in order to move the African countries forward.
