Inject ICT Into The Educational System – Dr. Kludjeson

“The old method of teaching is no more, the need to inject Information, Communication, and Technology (ICT) into the education sector is paramount.

“It is unacceptable for some teachers in the remote part of the country to try teaching ICT using any means including the use of stones as mouse and drawing of what looks like computers on the chalkboard to teach the children as we saw on TV,” Dr. Prince Kofi Kludjeson, President of Celtel Network Limited has stated.

He said the world was moving into a computerized reality where ICT use in the classroom was significant for offering students the chance to learn and apply the expected skills.

Dr. Kludjeson, who is a Past President of the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI) was talking at the Ghana News Agency-Tema Industrial News Hub Boardroom Dialog stage on the subject, “The new global economy and technological training,” which was observed by the Communication for Development and Advocacy Consult (CDA Consult) in Tema.
