The IALE Foundation has put up a team of passionate academic and project oriented team together to initiate a Science Project dubbed “Science in Action - Technology Wins! (SiA-T Wins!) Project”. We are in touch with Pratham Science Project team who have done similar programme at scale in India are ready to share technical support and project materials with us to enable pilot the scheme in Ghana and consequently roll it out to the entire nation.
Strategies for Achieving ICT Literacy & Proficiency in the Rural Primary and Secondary Schools in Ghana
In this project the interventionists are are of the view that in order to be productive members as well as responsible world citizens of African society, the next generation of leaders requires a full suite of knowledge and skills to compete in national, international, and global markets. This affordance is made possible by the knowledge base in the STEM and STEAM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics). However, access to computers and computer accessories for several children in Ghana remain an illusion at best.
Truly ICT (Internet Computing Technology) – fosters research, discovery, communication, collaboration, and idea exchange among the other disciplines (May & Abreh, 2017). The convenors of this research, Dr. Eldonna L. May and Dr. Might Kojo Abreh seek to bring an end to a regime where children learn about ICT without having access to computers, by identifying hotspots for this need and filling the places with modest amount of computers. Furthermore, the project has in its backbone the CPD for teachers in the rural setting to help them teach appropriate content and make practicals possible.
The IALE Foundation recently won a project to execute a five months project on the theme “Using TESSA OERs to Create Communities of Practice Amongst In-Service Basic School Teachers Undertaking Further Studies”. This project seeks to provide in-service teachers undertaking further studies with opportunities to link up with the TESSA resources to update their knowledge on the available and the potency of the TESSA resources that are freely available over the Open Educational Resource space.
It is intended that IALE will engage end users on a social platform to share the resources and monitor how end users are using and success stories that are emerging. Already the resource that intended end users in Ghana can freely access is avail at www.tessafrica.net and for the sake of this research users can access the document through our facebook handle @ialefoundationghana
