Need a computer? – Just draw it!

It’s hard to believe but teaching computing may be look like this in countries that haven’t enough money to buy computers for schools.

This Ghanaian hero-teacher, whose name is Richard Appiah Akoto, is doing his best to prepare students for national exam that includes questions on information and communication technology (ICT).

He decided to drew computer features and software on his blackboard, using multicolored chalk.

“I wanted them to know or see how the window will appear if they were to be behind a computer,” Akoto told CNN. “Always wanted them to have interest in the subject so I always do my possible best for them.”

“I have been doing this every time the lesson I’m teaching demands it,” he said. “I’ve drawn monitors, system units, keyboards, mouse, formatting toolbar, drawing toolbar, save as dialog box and so on.”

Akoto published the pictures of him drawing a diagram of Microsoft Word for his pupils at Betenase M/A Junior High School in the town of Sekyedomase and they became viral.

Among the hundreds of people who shared the post was Rebecca Enonchong, an entrepreneur who urged Microsoft Africa on Twitter to provide Akoto with some proper devices so he can leave the chalkboard behind.

“Surely you can get him some proper resources,” she suggested.

And on Tuesday, Microsoft Africa replied, promising Akoto a computer and access to educational material.
