Free SHS: ‘One Student, One Tablet’ will be implemented soon – Education Minister

Every student in public Senior High Schools (SHS) will receive a tablet, as promised by Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, according to Minister of Education Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum.
As part of the government’s digitalization goal, Dr. Adutwum announced during the 75th Annual New Year School and Conference (ANYSC) opening ceremony that every SHS student would shortly receive a tablet.
He made this declaration while complimenting the leader of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Bawumia, for supporting Ghana’s digitization initiative.
He claimed that by utilizing creativity and technology, the vice president had altered the way things are done in Ghana.

“You know we have a digitalisation agenda led by the president but championed by the vice president together with the Ministry of Communication and Digitalisation.

“The vice president’s agenda has done so much for this nation; whether it is mobile interoperability… being able to use digital service for transportation. In the past few years, it was so difficult moving from point A to B in Ghana, now because of Google App you just have to turn on your GPS and your driver would take you from point A to B,” he said.
