Survey Results: State of ICT in schools in Ghana

This survey report is the outcome of an extensive survey conducted in the Upper East, Upper West and Northern Regions of Ghana. The survey was conducted by Savana Signatures www.savsign.org. Savana Signatures is a Non-Governmental Organisation based in Tamale and working primarily in the area of ICTs in Education. The survey was conducted in March 2010 in the following districts: In the Northern region, Tamale Metropolis, Yendi Municipality, Gushegu/Karaga District, and the West Gonja. In the Upper East region, the Bolgatanga Municipality and Bawku West District were covered. In the Upper West region, the Wa Municipality and the Jirapa Lambusie District were covered. The survey targeted four (4) different categories of people. These are Students, Teachers, Headmasters and District Education Office Officials. The Ghana Government in 2007 introduced ICT as a subject to be studied in schools. The aim of the survey is to access the state of ICTs in schools three years after ICT has been introduced. It also sought to verify the preparedness of schools in terms of infrastructure to teach the subject ICT. The results are intended to be used to lobby key stakeholders to improve upon the state of ICTs in schools. It is also to give a clear picture of the current state of ICTs in schools so as to guide Savana Signatures in the organisation’s approach in trying to mainstream ICTs into teaching and learning.
