Media, Muppets, and Math: Sesame Workshop’s Secret to Help Kids Learn Math

Join a Free Webinar on Wednesday, April 3, 2013

How do I get to Sesame Street? I want to learn math!

Imagine learning numbers, addition, subtraction, or fractions by watching a Muppets show! This is how the Sesame Workshop gets children around the world to learn and enjoy math. The Sesame concept may involve using rickshaws in rural Bangladesh to broadcast television shows or developing games and culturally appropriate Muppets in South Africa. Innovation has been at the center of the Sesame Workshop over the past 40 years – experimenting and succeeding with creative ways to engage children educationally.

Learn more about the Sesame Workshop by joining the Global Partnership for Education’s April webinar featuring Abby Bucuvalas, assistant director of global education at the Sesame Workshop. Abby will highlight examples of Sesame Workshop’s multimedia math content, including examples from the United States, Ghana, and Indonesia and show how these programs impact children’s numeracy learning.


Access the webinar through Adobe Connect at 10:00 am EDT/ 2.00 pm GMT (other time zones):

The webinar series is part of a Community of Practice on Numeracy facilitated by the Global Partnership for Education. The community of practice is open to teachers, educators, practitioners, researchers, academics and others interested in numeracy.
