The Sesame Workshop channel, with innovative teaching and learning solutions, will be available this fall on Discovery Education’s learning platform. Beginning with curricular resources designed to address new and continuing needs associated with interrupted schooling and prioritized by Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSR) funding, the content comprises social and emotional development and wellness, foundational academic skills in math and literacy and a social studies-aligned curriculum focused on positive and healthy identity and sense of belonging. At the center of these resources will be research-based content from across the wide range of Sesame Workshop media, including “Sesame Street,” “The Electric Company” and more.
“Sesame Workshop’s success can be attributed to its collaborative, research-intensive approach to the development of highly engaging, child-centered media and programs,” says Pete Weir, chief product officer, Discovery Education. “Their offerings reflect both a deep understanding of children’s developmental needs and the best ways to address those needs. We are excited to partner with Sesame Workshop to bring the first dedicated PreK-2 channel to our award-winning K-12 platform and are eager to collaborate with educators nationwide on their efforts to align their early childhood initiatives, state standards and kindergarten readiness goals.”
Additional content areas, such as STEAM, healthy habits and coding are being prioritized through educator feedback and will be added in the future.
