GES Reviews Policy On The Use Of Mobile Phones In Schools.

The Ghana Education Service is currently reviewing policy on the use of electronic gadgets in schools.

According to Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, the Deputy Educational Minister, he discloses that the Ghana Education Service is currently reviewing its policy on the use of electronic gadgets in educational institutions — as the current policy prohibits Ghanaian students from using smartphones or tablets while school is on-going.

Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum also stated that a lot of policies are being reviewed because the world is changing. In this, the government is making everything possible to implement a policy such as “bring your own device” which allows a student to bring his or her own mobile phone, laptops, or any other ICT device that can be used for learning during school hours.

With source confirmed from MyJoyOnline, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum said, “I think we have to face the reality that the world has shifted and certain tools have become part of learning so GES is fully aware of that and they are looking at their policies. You have to wait to see the policy that will come.

In this 21st century whereby we live by technology age, more educational institutions around the globe now rely on ICT tools and gadgets for learning — particularly during this pandemic coronavirus outbreak.
