Microsoft Sends African Teacher Computer After Seeing Viral Photos
An ICT teacher in Ghana who demonstrated Microsoft Word to his students using a blackboard has become an international sensation.
The photo of his decidedly old-fashioned classroom set-up, which was shared on social media, has gone viral.
"I love my students so have to do what will make them understand what [I] am teaching," Mr. Akato wrote of the blackboard lessons on Facebook.
Mr Akoto's school hadn't had new computers since 2011, according to Quartz - even though the students needed to pass an ICT exam as part of their course requirements.
After seeing the photos, Microsoft has promised to send Mr Akoto a new computer for his classroom and give him access to education material and professional development. We're so excited for them!
