The Ghana Education Service (GES) will soon allow students the leeway to send their smart phones, laptops as well as other electronic gadgets to school.
Deputy Minister for Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, speaking on ‘Beyond The Lockdown’ on JoyNews Sunday, and monitored by BestNewsGH.com said the GES was earnestly reviewing the policy which barred the use of such gadgets in schools.
BestNewsGH.com reports him as citing the “bring your own device” initiative will make it legal for students to go to school with their own smart phones, laptops and other electronic devices.
He averred that “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.’’
He said government is yet to take a final decision on the matter saying “You have to wait to see the policy that will come.’’
