Microsoft To Support Man Who Drew Computer On Blackboard To Teach ICT
Posted on: Thursday, March 01, 2018

A teacher in Kumasi who educates his students on computer technology without any computers will get support from Microsoft.

On Tuesday, the software giant pledged to send Mr Richard Appiah Akoto a computer and give him access to its education material.

Mr Appiah used his blackboard to meticulously draw a diagram of the popular Microsoft Word program.

"Teaching of ICT in Ghana's school is very funny," he said in a Facebook post alongside the photos.

After the images were shared thousands of times online, Microsoft promised to send him new computer equipment.

In his Facebook message, Owura Kwadwo - a nickname for the teacher wrote:"I love my students so have to do what will make them understand what [I] am teaching."

Mr Akoto's school had not had any computers since 2011, despite the requirement for teenagers to pass an information and communications technology (ICT) exam as part of their progression to high school.

Many expressed admiration for his dedication when his mid-February post spread on social media.

"This is not my first time [of drawing] it. I have been doing it anytime I am in the classroom," Mr Akoto told Quartz.

"I like posting pictures on Facebook so I just felt like [sharing it]. I didn't know it would get the attention of people like that," he said.

On Sunday, entrepreneur Rebecca Enonchong tweeted to Microsoft Africa, highlighting that he was teaching the use of their product without actually having access to it.

"Surely you can get him some proper resources," she suggested.

On Tuesday, Microsoft said wrote: “We will equip Owura Kwadwo with a device from one of our partners, and access to our MCE program & free professional development.”
