    GES urged to reconsider stance against mobile phone use in SHS

    By | April 5, 2021

    Provost of the College of Education Studies, University of Cape Coast, Prof Eric Magnus Wilmot, has called on the Ghana Education Service (GES) to reconsider its stance against the use of mobile phones in Senior High Schools (SHS).

    He said mobile phone usage could be properly regulated in schools to advance academic work of students.

    A statement copied to the Ghana News Agency from the Science Education Unit of the GES quoted Prof. Wilmot as suggesting that there were more positives to the use of mobile phones than the negatives, hence the urgent need to lift the ban.

    Prof. Wilmot stated during the first Ghana Science Olympiad Competition (GSO), organised for Science and Mathematics students by the GES in Gomoa Fetteh in the Central Region.

    According to the statement Mr Andrews Kwabena Quaning, the Head of the Science Education Unit, GES, who outlined the criteria for the award, explained that the GSO was a competition that brought students together in order to encourage them to solve problems of interdisciplinary content and relevance.

    The competition would also help the students to think critically, be creative and innovative in solving problems with scientific principles and as well be prepared towards their future careers.

    The statement explained that the tasks consisted of critical thinking objectives, problem-based theory and practical questions from Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics.

    The Theory and Objective tests were done on an individual basis whilst the practical was done in groups of two (school-based).

    The best 30 students were awarded 10 Gold medals, 10 Silver medals and 10 Bronze medals.

    The statement said the students were also awarded under categories of Best Student in Theory and Objectives, Best School in Practical, and Overall Best School.

    The Awards included a digital tablet, science books, trophy, plaque and fully installed DSTV Decoder with educational content.

    In all, eight students had plaques whilst four of them were given Samsung Galaxy Tablets and the three best schools were awarded trophies.
