“We Are Teachers”: a participatory video in rural primary schools

Over the course of three weeks, four teachers and two headmasters from Nasonjo and Matindi primary schools near Chilangoma DAPP Malawi Teacher Training College produced a video reflecting on the “experiences of teachers in Malawi, especially in rural primary schools.”

Henry Ng’ombe, a 34 year-old primary school teacher, who participated in the exercise narrates, “The video depicts the challenges, successes, the activities taking place, the initiatives teachers have, and the cooperation between teachers, the communities and other stakeholders.”

DAPP Malawi in partnership with Humana Spain recently had the opportunity to look more in-depth at the long-term results, in an innovative collaboration that it has with Open University and Catcher Media Social in the UK.

Rick Goldsmith from Catcher Media Social, who facilitated the workshop and film, says “Participatory video brings a lot of energy into a group. It breaks down some barriers, brings down hierarchies, and allows people to talk about issues in a dynamic and playful way.”

“It’s more ‘real’ and adds concrete perspective to the issues and topics that they choose to look at.”

We recommend that you go to the you-tube channel for DAPP Malawi and watch the very moving video where the teachers talk about real problems that they and the students face in the everyday and how they overcome them together with inventive and friendly solutions.
