ICT Improving Low Quality Education In Ghana

It is acknowledged that for Ghana to make any appreciable progress in its socio-economic and human resource development, substantial resources will need to be directed at improving educational policy and delivery.

For instead in 2011, 176,128 candidates, representing 46.93 per cent of the 375,280 candidates who sat for the 2011 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) were placed into Senior High Schools (SHSs) and Technical Institutions (TIs) based on the computerized selection and placement processes. The remaining candidates representing 53.07 per cent could not meet the placement criteria and unable to gain admission into SHSs and TIs in that year.

The fallen standard of Ghana education is blamed on the lack of teaching and learning materials, poor teaching methodologies and as well as the inability of schools to effectively use ICT.
To widen access to quality and literacy education, the role of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) cannot be downplayed.  Ghana in 2008 enacted ICT in education policy to improve quality teaching and learning to raise the standard of education. The policy also made ICT an examinable subject.

To support this efforts, Savana Signatures in 2011 initiated the Integration of ICT in Education Project (IIEP) to support the government to implement ICT in Education Policy.

A document entitled “Addressing Low Quality of Education in Ghana Through ICT” has chronicled successes and challenges of IIEP during its implementation. IIEP beneficiary schools are transforming teaching and learning using ICT. Teaching and learning outcomes in IIEP schools are progressively improving.
