New Word order: Ghanaian teacher uses blackboard to explain software. Richard Appiah Akoto is a Ghanaian teacher who faces a pretty discouraging dilemma. His students need to pass a national exam that includes questions on information and communication technology (ICT) — but the school hasn’t had a computer since 2011.

So Akoto had an ingeniously simple idea: he 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.”
Images of Akoto — who on social media uses the nickname “Owura Kwadwo Hottish” — drawing a diagram of Microsoft Word for his pupils at Betenase M/A Junior High School in the town of Sekyedomase went viral after he posted them on Facebook.
“Teaching of ICT in Ghana’s school is very funny,” he says on the caption accompanying the post.
CNN has reached out to Microsoft for comment.
