The Ghana Education Service (GES) has cancelled the online training sessions for beneficiaries of the One Teacher One Laptop (1T1L) Initiative which was slated for three days beginning from February 16.
“Management of Ghana Education will like to inform you that the online ICT training in connection with the One Teacher One Laptop initiative scheduled for 16th February 2022 has been put on hold”, a statement from the GES said.
Although the reason for the cancellation was not communicated in their statement, the GES assured that it will collaborate with K. A Technologies (KAT)-supplier of the laptops- and Microsoft to come up with a new date and timeline.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) in a letter to Regional Education Directors, earlier this week, announced online training sessions for teachers who have benefitted from the one teacher one laptop (1T1L) initiative starting from February 16.
“All teachers are expected to undergo some basic ICT training to help them use the various e-learning resources that have been made available on the laptops“, the letter said.
The workshop, it said, was going to be through the collaborative efforts of the Ghana Education Service (GES), K.A. Technologies(KAT), the organisation supplying the laptops, and Microsoft.
In the letter, the GES indicated that each teacher will be entitled to 3 days of the online training session.
For the scheduled time, the GES said there will be three sessions from 2 pm to 6 pm with each session lasting 2hrs.
“Teachers will receive points for their Continuous Professional Department (CPD) and a certificate for participation upon successful completion and assessment”, a part of the letter read.
The project was launched on September 3, 2021, to equip 280, 000 pre-tertiary teachers with laptops.
