Akundaare Paul Awinbisa, a teacher of Information and Communication Technologies in the Upper East Region of Ghana has been captured teaching despite having highly inadequate equipment.
In a media file that was spotted by YEN.com.gh, the ingenious schoolteacher managed to progress with his ICT lessons by connecting a keyboard to a monitor that was drawn on the chalkboard.
Reports indicate that Paul used an outmoded keyboard with a cable he brought from the house to demonstrate to the class how the computer works.
He was teaching the topic ‘Input and Output devices’ of a computer during the ICT lesson at the Sikabiisi Junior high School located in the Bongo District of the region.
In a previous but similar report by YEN.com.gh, a picture posted on social media showed a teacher painstakingly recreating and labelling the layout of Microsoft Word on a blackboard using only coloured chalk.
This was due to a lack of facilities in the school to provide the pupils with the necessary equipment to conduct the lesson.
With teachers in other countries complaining that they cannot teach without books, this teacher goes to show that where there is a will, there is a way.
The 33-year-old teacher, Richard Appiah Akoto, is the information and communication technology teacher at Betenase M/A Junior High School in the town of Sekyedomase, Ghana.
Due to the fact that his school has no computer, Akoto draws the Microsoft Word layout on a blackboard to teach students and labels it with coloured chalks, and describes it to the students.
