It was made known that the motive for the distribution of the laptops was to aid teachers get acquainted with Information and Technology (IT) in the teaching and learning process, since the newly introduced curriculum is more of computer-oriented.
Again, the laptops will help teachers carry out research work and gather more information on topics that they are not conversant with.
The TM1 laptop has these specifications:

The laptops have the following already installed on:
A sample of lesson notes, scheme of learning, curriculum from KG to SHS, Labour act, code of conduct, Ghana's Constitution, textbooks, just to mention a few.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) has secured two hundred and eighty thousands(280,000) laptops to be given to all teachers belonging to the various teachers' unions across the country.
The regional and district education offices will facilitate the distribution of the laptops. The government of Ghana will split the cost of the laptops with the teachers in the ratio 70:30 respectively. That is, the government will pay 7o% of the cost of the item while the remaining 30% will be payed by each teacher.
We are hopeful that the distribution will commence from 3rd May, 2021.
