End of the year message December 31 2018

We frequently receive comments and questions about the extensive collection of videos that brings the SECD resources to life. So, we are taking this opportunity to provide a little background on our video collection, which continues to grow even as we are writing this message!
Did you know that:

  • over 120 researchers/experts have been interviewed?  The first interviews conducted included Dr. Fraser Mustard, Sir Michael Rutter and Dr. Meagan Gunnar. The international perspective expanded with interviews from experts around the globe such as Dr. Kofi Marfo, Dr. Aisha Yousafzai, and Dr. Zulifgar Bhutta.  The most recent interviews conducted were with Dr. Maureen Black and Dr. Michael Skinner. Watch for these and others that will be added to SECD modules in the coming weeks and months! 
  • the SECD team has filmed in ten countries?  Parents, leaders and experts have been interviewed in Afghanistan, Cuba, Egypt, Kenya, Mozambique, Pakistan Tajikistan, the United States, Zanzibar, and of course in many regions of Canada. The SECD team includes skilled and experienced videographers who have produced high quality videos of children and families in a variety of programs and settings.  To see one of the recently added videos, click on “ECD in Chiure district Mozambique.”
  • SECD videos have been viewed all over the world?  The markers on this map indicate countries where SECD videos have been viewed over the past year. 

What are your favorite SECD videos?  In 2018, the most viewed expert video was this Dr. Stuart Shanker clip called “evolution”. The second video is one that we predict will become one of your favorites!
