Talk about Takalani Sesame anywhere and you’ll immediately be greeted with enthusiastic responses and people offering up their favourite things about the series. In South Africa, Takalani Sesame has become somewhat of a stalwart for children’s viewing, providing not only educational content but fun times too! And now, thanks to the wonders of the connected world, Takalani Sesame is going digital! Launching today, 27 January 2015, you’ll be able to tune in and click over to the Takalani Sesame YouTube channel. Extending the reach of this award-winning children’s series beyond television and radio broadcasts, and complementing the Takalani Sesame websites and social media presence on Facebook and Twitter, is an important move, especially considering how YouTube viewership figures have blossomed in South Africa over recent years. Featuring segments from broadcast episodes, songs and other fun content, content will be updated regularly and made available in not just one – but five! – South African languages: isiZulu, Tshivenda, Sepedi, Afrikaans and English. The YouTube channel makes hours of content available that is designed to support early childhood and early primary curriculum for children from 3 to 7 years old, covering literacy, languages, mathematics and life skills. And, best of all, the YouTube content is supported by downloadable activity sheets and playgroup or classroom lessons to deepen educational outcomes. So, join us as we enjoy Takalani Sesame on YouTube!
