Ghana Education Service (GES) has launched an innovative Teacher Survey App in Accra, which intends to improve learning outcomes for students and focus more attention on teachers.
Teacher Tapp is for teachers and people interested in education to find out what’s really happening in schools as well as what good teaching looks like.
Dr Kwabena Bempah Tando, Deputy Director-General of GES said, as part of the activities to mark Continuous Professional Day (CPD), GES in partnership with Ghana Society for Education Technology (GSET) unveiled the “Teacher Tapp” to provide information for teachers and improve their work.
He said the App would provide GES and other agencies including policymakers and Non-Governmental Organisations real time data on teaching and learning which would inform their decision making to improve the schools and learning outcomes.
The App provides additional avenues for Ghanaian teachers to connect with each other and gives them a greater sense of community by learning from the experiences of their colleagues across the country.
Every day you get asked three simple questions about teaching and education. In return for answering , you get to see how other teachers responded to the questions from the day before. You also get a short, expertly-selected bit of professional development reading to help you understand education and get better at teaching.
