OLE Ghana with support from World Vision Ghana has organized what has been referred to as ‘Literacy based Edugames’.


Edugames is based on the concept of Gamification which is the application of typical elements of gaming/playing (e.g. point scoring, competition with others, rules of play) to other areas of activity to encourage engagement with a product or service.


The games are in keeping with OLE Ghana’s twin philosophies of ‘Making Learning Fun’ and ‘Reading being the gateway to all learning’. It is also in line with World Vision’s avowed aim of promoting reading through technology to promote children’s well-being.


A total of 13 schools from Afram Plains and 12 from Fanteakwa took part. Schools were grouped into 3 zones and the winners in each zone participated in the finals. The games were held for four categories of people namely Lower Primary, Upper Primary, Parents & Pupils team and Teachers.

Pupils were tested on phonics, ability to listen and comprehend, basic grammar, pronunciation of words using the syllabic approach, word formation, unscramble words, spelling and reading of short sentences. All these form part of OLE Ghana’s reading program dubbed Reading Steps to Glory. In some rounds non-competing pupils and teachers were asked to join the competitors to answer questions. This was to send home the message of teamwork between teachers and pupils in the learning process.  


The Parent & Pupil team session was to drum home the need for parents to partner the school in educating the child.  A parent from each school was joined by a pupil to compete with similar teams from the other schools. They were asked questions relating to their role as parents in relation to their wards education, questions about their wards school and some general questions. They also had a fun round of ‘pick and act’.


The Teachers also had their fair share of the games as they took part in a  reading competition meant to rekindle love teachers had for reading and motivate them to read and to do same for children under their care.

Lower primary: 1st Tease RC Primary; 2nd Abotanso RC Primary; 3rd Semanhyia Presby Primary
