Teacher Using Chalkboard to Teach MS Word Draws Praise and Sparks Ire
A Facebook post showing a teacher in Ghana using a chalkboard to show students how to use MS Word has gone viral.
People have been quick to praise the teacher’s spirit and dedication but the post has also sparked ire and disappointment that a teacher trying to teach computers doesn’t even have access to one in the classroom.
Owura Kwadwo teaches ICT (Information and Communications Technology) in Kumasi, Ghana and studied visual arts in school—which has come handy in his teaching profession.
In an interview with Bored Panda, Kwadwo says the viral post has garnered a number of offers for donations of laptops, projectors etc.
“There are many schools facing this same problem,” he told Bored Panda. “I can also help out and give some of the donations to them, so they can also benefit through teaching ICT.”
