Dr.Prince Hamid Armah the Director of National Council For Curriculum and Assessment( Nacca) who also doubles as .Vice Chairman of the Education Committee of Parliament, has revealed that the Government of Ghana is committed to providing digital literacy training to all teacher trainees in government accredited colleges of Education.
Dr.Prince Hamid said this on Saturday, February 2022 when he was addressing the gathering as a special guest of honor at the Investiture I Dr. Adwoa Kwegyiriba as the new Principal of the St. Francis College of Education, Hohoe.
According to the Vice-Chairman of the Education Committee of Parliament,
policymakers must continuously remain committed to the wholesome training and development of teachers, especially in the field of digitization.
“We are in the Digital Dispensation, where many children are now referred to as digital natives because of their affinity for and heavy dependence on Information Communication Technology (ICT) tools”.
“Other studies further suggest that digital immigrants, i.e. the adults who have had to adapt to ICT, struggle to create digitization can meaningfully engage and hold the attention of digital natives. This is perhaps one of the greatest challenges of education delivery in the 21st century,” he stated
“The infusion of ICT into education delivery is a challenge beyond Ghana; the African continent has generally struggled to successfully infuse ICT due to a lack of supporting infrastructure at basic levels”
