Microsoft fulfills pledge, sends Ghanaian teacher who drew computer on chalkboard to Singapore

Microsoft Africa, has fulfilled one of its major promises to Ghanaian teacher, Richard Akoto Appiah, who during one of his classes drew the Microsoft interface on a chalkboard.
The IT giant has sent the 34-year-old ICT tutor on an all-expense paid trip to Singapore to attend this year’s Education Exchange (E2) organised by it.
The Bill Gate led organisation, had among other things promised to equip Appiah with a device and access to the MCE program and free professional development resources, after the viral picture of Appiah teaching his class caught the eyes of one of the organisation's representatives.
Appiah, known as Owura Kwadwo Hottish on Facebook confirmed this on Facebook.
In a post with several pictures of him in the Asian country, he said “Just arrived in Singapore for the Microsoft Global Education Exchange Summit. Looking forward to learn something new. #thanksMicrosoft.”




Microsoft had earlier supplied the school with computers…see pictures below:

The E2 has been in existence for more than a decade and aims to celebrate amazing educators and provide them with the opportunity to collaborate with each other.
