‘Generational gulf’ in ICT knowledge in Ghana

cpu(Image source: stock.xchng)The director of African Solutions for African Problems (APPS 4 Africa), Jon Gosier, has highlighted the huge discrepancy in the knowledge of Ghanaian adults compared to youths regarding ICT

The director made the observation at the end of a conference held recently in Accra, which was themed, ‘International Development – African-led Solutions’.

“While the young show a lot of interest in ICT, with many of them being conversant with it, the elderly do not appear to be all that keen to learn ICT,” said Gosier. “ICT has come to stay, therefore, in the modern world, it is impossible to think development without thinking ICT.”

According to Ghana News Agency, Gosier said that such conferences were organised periodically by APPS 4 Africa to bring together African ministers of state as well as other stakeholders, to deliberate on how best “to source out solutions from innovative minds” that could be used in solving the problems that confront Africa.
