- Information and Communication Technology teacher noted for his creativity takes delivery of first computer
- He was seen with his students in pictures showing off the laptop
- Owura Kwadwo Hottish became an internet sensation after a picture of his classroom lesson went viral
Owura Kwadwo, the ICT teacher who gained national and international recognition for his creativity at teaching his students, has received a laptop from an international university to enable him teach better.
In a post made on his Facebook page, the now very popular teacher shared photos of his new laptop.
He was seen in a group photo with some of his students who could not hide their joy after receiving their very first learning material.
The proud teacher captioned his post, “The staff and students of Betenase M/A JHS wishes to say a very big thank you to AMIRAH ALHARTHI, university of Leeds for donating a laptop to the school to enhance the teaching and learning of ICT.”
Even though many promises to kit out the ICT teacher have been made, the laptop that has been received would go a long way to enhance the teaching and learning of ICT in the school.
Owura Kwadwo, who teaches ICT at the Betenase M/A JHS warmed millions of hearts around the world when a photo of him went viral on social media.
He was teaching Microsoft office without a computer but used his ingenuity to sketch out the screen onto a blackboard to make his students have a feel of a ‘non-existent’ computer.
He said his inspiration came mainly from the fact that his students were going to sit for the same examinations as other students who studied with computers and he had to do what he could to help his students.
ICT giants, Microsoft, who picked up the viral story have promised to send Owura Kwadwo some computers to enable him teach ‘properly’.
