Filming for our new inclusive early childhood education videos is now well underway in Swaziland. One of the exciting aspects of this film-making project is that we are not just documenting good ideas to help early years educators become more inclusive. We are also working with youth from local secondary schools. We are building on the lessons learned in our Listening to Young Voices project, and now older learners in Swaziland are working with pre-school learners to help them talk about their experiences of education.
This approach to facilitation works well at stimulating young children to express themselves, and it helps the older learners develop different skills. It is very important to us that when we are filming we are not just taking away footage, but are offering learning opportunities at the same time.
