When asked why he decided to draw the Internet explorer on the board, Richmond Owusu Boateng, who seems committed to his job and has the students at heart indicated that he has been resorting to the teaching of ICT on the board for a long time because there are no computers in the school and he cannot stop because he has passion for the job.
The teacher again said he will be happy if the government, NGO's, individuals or even Microsoft can come to their aid.
This story follows an earlier picture of a young teacher struggling to teach a primary class the basic knowledge of Information Communication Technology (ICT) has emerged.
Despite massive efforts by the government to improve ICT education in Ghana, it is obvious that the deficit of infrastructure and non-availability of internet connectivity has left the subject minimized the impact of the subject to imaginary works on blackboards.
Earlier in January, Starr FM reported of how the Ghana Investment Fund for Electronic Communications (GIFEC), together with the ministry of communications, embarked on a program to extend ICT to rural and deprived communities across the country.
Meanwhile, there are calls for the government to prioritize re-training of all ICT teachers especially those in the rural and peri-rural zones of the country.
Government is also being called upon to speed the construction of ICT laboratories across all rural communities in the country.
