Man teaches computing to students without using any computers

Microsoft promised to send him some new computer equipment.

Is it possible to teach computer programs without using computer? If your answer is "NO" then you are wrong because a 33-year-old man who teaches computing without using a single computer has become an online hero.

The man who has been identified as Richard Appiah Akoto, is seen using a blackboard instead of computer to make students understand about the concept of Microsoft apps.

Akoto is an information and communication teacher at Betenase M/A Junior High School in Sekyedomase, Ghana. Due to a lack of equipment he uses a hand-drawn detailed diagram to teach his class.

After the images were shared by thousands of people online, Microsoft said they'll send him some new computer equipment and said he could have access to their educational materials for free.
