President of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) Angel Carbonu says most teachers will find it difficult to conduct online education due to 'illiteracy' in IT.
President Akufo-Addo delivering an address on Covid-19 on March 15 said All Universities, Senior High Schools, and basic schools, i.e. public and private schools, will be closed Monday, 16th March 2020, till further notice. The Ministry of Education, in collaboration with the Ministry of Communication, has been tasked to roll out distance learning programmes,”
This directive has been followed duly but Mr Carbonu believes most teachers lack the requisite knowledge in the field of IT to use the online platforms to teach.
While schools have been shut, the President also put a ban on all public gatherings including conference, workshops, funerals, festivals, political rallies and church activities and related events as part of measures to stop the spread of coronavirus in the country.
He said the ban will be in force for the next four weeks. Ghana has now recorded 11 cases of the deadly coronavirus.
