NDC manifesto: Students to receive tablets - Mahama [ In this Era of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram?]


The National Democratic Congress (NDC) government has plans to dish out tablet devices to students at the Senior High level in a pilot programme aimed at helping to boost their competences in core subjects, according to President John Mahama. But, I have some concerns. Is the distribution of the tablets with their core subjects on them the best way in this era where Facebook, twitter, and instagram the orders of the day? Will the students use these devices for education purposes as originally planned? Even when smartphones phones are supposedly banned from senior high schools, some students sneak in with them. Though It's a very good Idea, I think it should be looked at again.
