U/W Education Directorate receives computers

Sustainable Aid through Voluntary Establishment (SAVE-Ghana), a non-governmental organisation (NGO) based in Tumu in the Upper West Region, has donated eleven desktop computers and a laptop computer to the Regional Directorate of Education.

The computers purchased at the cost of GHc24,400.00 would enhance monitoring and supervision of teachers at schools in the area, to improve teaching and learning.

Mr.Dintie Tayiru Sule, Executive Director of the NGO, presented the computers to Madam Patricia Ayiko, the Regional Director of Education, at Wa on Friday.

He said the move formed part of the NGO’s “Improving Learning Outcomes through ICT and Evidence Base Approach” project, which was being funded by Making All Voices Count.

Mr. Sule said the computers would be distributed to the districts in the region, while the Regional Director of Education would use the laptop.

He said under the project,Android devices would be installed at all schools in the eleven districts in the region, so that teachers would log in when they report to school and log out when leaving.

Mr. Sule explained that the software would be installed in all the computers such that district directors of education could monitor school activities in the districts.

He said: “This will improve monitoring, reduce travelling hours and cost, administrative duties and enhance education performance in the region.”

Madam Patricia Ayiko commended the NGO for the gesture and said, “A weak monitoring system encourages laziness and absenteeism by teachers, but with this system in place, the lazy ones would be exposed and sanctioned,” he said. – GNA
