Ghanaian teacher uses blackboard to explain software

Richard Appiah Akoto is a Ghanaian teacher who faces a pretty discouraging dilemma.

His students need to pass a national exam that includes questions on information and communication technology (ICT) — but the school hasn’t had a computer since 2011.

 

So Akoto had an ingeniously simple idea: he drew computer features and software on his blackboard, using multicolored chalk.

“I wanted them to know or see how the window will appear if they were to be behind a computer,” Akoto told CNN. “Always wanted them to have interest in the subject so I always do my possible best for them.” Read more on CNN

Achieve Greater Design Flexibility and Reduce Costs with Chiplets

Sponsored by Keysight

Chiplets are a new way to build a system-on-chips (SoCs) to improve yields and reduce costs. It partitions the chip into discrete elements and connects them with a standardized interface, enabling designers to meet performance, efficiency, power, size, and cost challenges in the 5 / 6G, artificial intelligence (AI), and virtual reality (VR) era. This white paper will discuss the shift to chiplet adoption and Keysight EDA's implementation of the communication standard (UCIe) into the Keysight Advanced Design System (ADS).
