After the educational reform in Ghana in 2019, the standard of education remains unchanged. One can argue that the amendment is new and will have effect after some years. No doubt about that but computing as a subject remains the same. Methods of teaching are slightly changed but the old problems teachers encounter in their delivery is still the same.
The major of it is the lack of Computing tools in many basic schools. The new curriculum encourages practical lessons but there has been inadequate preparation towards the provision of learning tools. And the old theory days might be seen beginning again. The story of teachers teaching by drawing Microsoft interfaces on chalkboards are still ongoing.
The advancement in the world is based on technology. Many countries are training young children in the field of technology and engineering. Ghana still lags because even the basics are not strong. Until there is a strong foundation in computing for basic school children, the gap between us and the foreign world in terms of technology will still be wide.
We look forward to an improvement in the field under discussion. This will enable us to match up to the standard of world technology.
