Phase I (SDG 1, 4, 8) - Soft Skills Trainings to Students and Teachers from the King’s School, GHANA
Soft Skills for students and teachers - Phase I
The idea about organizing the ICT lectures for both students and staff of The King’s School came from Miss Maureen, the Management of The King’s village Ghana and Endorse Hope around October/November 2021.
The move was necessitated by the gross deficiency by the ICT teacher to effectively handle ICT lessons with the students since the whole ICT lab had only one functional desktop computer.
The king’s Junior High School has a total student population of eighty-one (81) and a teacher population of eleven (11)
Out of this number, only twenty (20) students were selected to form the first class for the pilot programme with all the staff of both the primary and the Junior high school given the opportunity to participate.
The program started on 2nd November, 2021 in the ICT Lab. All students and teachers alike were very much enthused and eager, as they were going to length something new in the area of ICT.
The lectures went on for both students and teachers since then up until February 2022 when the first phase ended. In all, teachers had six (6) lectures whilst students had eleven (11) lectures during the first phase.
Generally, the lectures over the period had been largely effective and participatory. All the lectures were well-tailored for the students and teachers, from beginner to intermediate level.
The first phase ended with a test for the students and the best performing student was 𝗦𝘁𝗮𝗻𝗰𝘆 𝗔𝗻𝗮𝗺𝗮𝗮𝗹𝗮 𝗔𝗮𝘁𝘂𝗼𝗸𝘂𝘂.
The lectures during the period did not go without challenges. Below are some of the key challenges encountered during the phase one lectures.
𝗜𝗻𝗮𝗱𝗲𝗾𝘂𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗳𝘂𝗻𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗽𝘂𝘁𝗲𝗿𝘀: There was only one functional desktop computer in the computer lab, which has been the case for a very long time. Due to this, learners were not able to practise whatever lessons they were taught, during and after each lecture.
𝗣𝗼𝗼𝗿 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗻𝗲𝘁 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝗻𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗱𝘂𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘇𝗼𝗼𝗺 𝗺𝗲𝗲𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴: There were some days lectures had to be rescheduled due to very bad internet connection emanating from either ends. Even with days that the lectures came off, there were intermittent interruption by poor connection which caused difficult in understanding from both learners and lecturer sides.
