This when rolled out for SHS students will see students receiving tablets loaded with textbooks.

This is part of the government's effort toward the digitalization of the education sector in Ghana.

According to him, the tablets to be given to second-cycle school students will be preloaded with all essential textbooks and learning materials.

He made this known at this year's New Year School at the University of Ghana, Legon.


"This year, we are on course to provide all Senior High School students in Ghana with tablets that are loaded with textbooks on them for their studies. That’s a very game-changing development. We will have past questions preloaded on these tablets that will be distributed," he stated.

The One SHS student One Tablet programme will target only students in public SHSs across the country.

The one-teacher one-laptop which is the teachers' version has been rolled out with laptops being distributed to teachers at the pre-tertiary level.
