Abstract
There have been many changes in Ghana’s school language policy and this is main due to the desire to improve literacy acquisition. However, there has been little improvement in the literacy and numeracy skills of students. There is now a recognised need for a better means of effectively teaching children, especially when it comes to English. The Mother Tongue Literacy Project was established to enhance mother tongue literacy acquisition and teach English as a second language. This project aims at developing a technological tool that will support the teachers and coaches of the organisation. The application is tailored for the literacy project, and as such, it includes the lesson guides for the teachers and additional features such as a timer, an assessment form and a way to share and view photos of teaching and learning materials, to make it easy for them to prepare and teach each lesson.
