Teacher inspires the internet by teaching MS word on a chalkboard.


Teacher inspires the internet by teaching MS word on a chalkboard.

Teaching is not an easy job. It’s made even harder when teachers do not have the resources they need to do the work they have been assigned to do. A number of teachers have to improvise to get their pupils a basic understanding of the things they teach them. One teacher has literally gone back to the drawing board to teach pupils in his class how to use a computer.

In an ideal situation, students would sit behind their computers while the teacher points out the various parts of whichever programme they are currently studying. Owura Kwadwo and his pupils, however, have no such luxury. Making do with the resources available to him and determined not to let his charges fall behind, the teacher sketched an average Microsoft Word document on the chalkboard. The parts of the window are labelled, enabling the students to get a fair idea of the various parts of a typical Word document.

A number of schools in the country face similar challenges. Many schools in rural Ghana, including the Gbolo Alzariya English and Arabic Primary school in the Sagnarigu district of the Northern Region are without Information Communication and Technology (ICT) laboratories and tools. The school’s headmistress, Madam Mahama Maria, revealed that the only laptop used for teaching the pupils has not been functioning since 2015.

According to her, a philanthropist donated the said laptop to the school with a population of 430 students. “We have an ICT teacher in the school. In the past, we used to have a laptop which someone gave to the school to use but it’s been spoilt for about two years now,” she said





“It is a big problem for us that we have an ICT teacher in the school and yet there is no laptop for us to use and teach the students.” - She also added.





“Teaching is a very noble profession that shapes the character, calibre, and future of an individual.” – A.P.J. Abdul Kalam





A teacher is a true symbol of a giver, they give all they can to your son or daughter. They give their time, their care, their knowledge. And they give it with patience, love, commitment, and honesty. A teacher is like a fountain which will inspire your child with unlimited modesty forever.


Take a look at a teachers heart and you will find ample love for your child. A teacher will always want your child to flourish in life and be on a path of righteousness. She will feel happy at all stages of life to meet your child and truly bless them.





“I DO IT TO MAKE MY STUDENTS UNDERSTAND WHAT I’M TEACHING. AT LEAST TO GIVE A PICTURE OF WHAT THEY WILL SEE ASSUMING THEY WERE BEHIND A COMPUTER. I DO MAKE SURE THEY UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING WELL BEFORE THEY LEAVE THE CLASS.” - Owura Kwadwo.





It is with the dedication of teachers like Mr Kwadwo that children can excel and learn to love these subjects. With sheer determination, he has become an inspiration to many in the profession.
