South African partner, working with Education Development Center (EDC), to evaluate Takalani Sesame Community Engagement Initiative

Working with the Education Development Center (EDC) based in New York, NBA is the South African partner for a two-pronged evaluation study for Takalani Sesame. The first component of the research is the evaluation of Takalani Sesame's Community Engagement work in the Free State. Through this programme, ECD practitioners and parents are trained in how to use learning through play to enrich early learning both at school and in the home and NBA is researching the effectiveness of the intervention. The second component of the research involves an innovative media study to assess the extent to which providing access to and encouraging families to view Season 11 of Takalani Sesame relates to improvements in children's problem solving and task persistence.
