The NDDLC is considered decisive, timely and crucial, owing to the irreversibly fast-changing trends taking place in education delivery across the world, propelled by rapid advancements in digital technology.

With the key reasons highlighted above, it also remains a highly prioritised vision of the Minister of Education, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum and by extension, government, to actively pursue the development of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) while also bridging the learning loss and ensuring the provision of quality, equitable and accessible education to all learners across the country.
The higher digital path of an accelerated, technologically-attuned, developmentally- responsive and globally-competitive educational development.

Opening the meeting, the Minister of Education, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, said digital learning was one of the ways avail­able for the country to leapfrog inequality in education.

He said the government was resolved to change the course of history in terms of education in the country, and the right investment was being made in the sector, to make the President’s vision of using educa­tion as a transformative tool a reality.

“The President is really determined. Digital learning can come to the rescue, I am happy to announce to you first time publicly that we are going to develop and begin the Ghana virtual high school. The virtual high school will give opportunity to many of our youth to enroll virtually and complete high school online,” Dr Adut­wum noted.

He said, ‘If you have a top performing teacher, for example at Presbyterian Boys Secondary School (PRESEC) who is very famous for science, that teacher can teach the whole country virtually as in Pronius. In real time, other teachers will stop their instruction and pay attention to what the great instructor from PRESEC will be teaching. After that they can do all the activities and then continue from there,” he emphasised.

 

Dr Adutwum said “there would not be the need to wait until more teachers are trained to become great instructors. There is the need to leapfrog inequality by ex­tending the services of one great instructor to all high schools. This is what distance education should be doing for us.”

The Executive Director of CENDLOS, Nana Gyamfi Adwabor, said the successes of the past year had fuelled the determina­tion to continue pushing the boundaries of digital and distance learning in the country.

Nana Adwabor explained that this year’s theme for the conference underscored the critical need for collaboration and collec­tive action.

“By bringing together diverse perspec­tives and expertise, we can leverage our collective strength to overcome challenges and create meaningful and lasting change that will help us achieve the overarching national mission of reimaging education,” he said.

He also said that the Mind-craft education tools migrated from the shores of the United States by partnering with CENDLOS, which is based here in Accra, Ghana, to launch this aspect of Artificial intelligence (AI), introduced first in Ghana and Africa, to help build the intelligent power of our schoolchildren.
According to him, this initiative  will also help the child’s mind develop more creative thinking, communication, collaboration,and critical thinking.
