Sesame Workshop and the non-profit One Laptop Per Child are teaming up to make Sesame Street content available on the laptops that OLPC distributes.

The Workshop and OLPC plan to distribute laptops to children in Latin America and South Africa, preloaded with Sesame Street content. The educational packages for the two regions will include content from the respective local adaptations of “Sesame Street”–“Plaza Sésamo” and “Takalani Sesame”–including games, e-books, video clips, character photos and printable activities such as coloring sheets.

The two organizations also have plans to expand to additional international territories and include preloaded tablets in the future.
