In a bid to revolutionize education in Ghana, the Akufo-Addo-led government has initiated the rollout of the One-Student One-Tablet (1S1T) program in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) schools nationwide.

The Minister for Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, announced plans to distribute free tablets to over 1.4 million students in government Senior High Schools, with distribution set to commence in April. This move is a pivotal aspect of the Free Senior High School program, aimed at elevating the quality of teaching and learning in public second-cycle schools.

Vice-President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia reiterated the government’s commitment to digital transformation in education during the New Year School at the University of Ghana, Legon. He emphasized the distribution of free electronic tablets preloaded with essential textbooks and past questions to all Senior High School students nationwide. This initiative, he stated, signifies a shift towards leveraging technology to facilitate learning and prepare youth for success in the digital age.

The distribution has already begun, with 868 tablets allocated to the Sefwi Awaso STEM SHS to enhance learning experiences and ensure equal opportunities for all students. This initiative underscores the growing importance of technology in Ghana’s education system.

Dr. Adutwum emphasized the government’s vision for a technologically enriched educational environment, stating, “Within the next two months, every student in this esteemed institution will receive a tablet computer.” He outlined plans to develop a cutting-edge learning management system, provide comprehensive training for teachers, and transition homework and class activities to an online platform. Additionally, the government aims to enhance the learning experience by deploying more smart boards, creating a comprehensive, technology-driven ecosystem.

The 1 Student, 1 Tablet initiative represents a significant stride towards integrating Information Communication Technology (ICT) into Ghana’s education system, promising a more dynamic and inclusive learning environment for students across the country.
