Online learning platform Discovery Education is partnering with Sesame Workshop to fill learning gaps created by the pandemic with the rollout of a new kids channel this fall.

Its lineup will include videos, lesson plans, interactive games and activities that focus on building foundational academic skills in both math and literacy for preschool to grade two.

Using Sesame Workshop’s wide range of content, including iconic shows such as┬áSesame Street and The Electric Company, the channel will also offer resources and a social studies curriculum to promote children’s emotional development and wellness.

Sesame plans to leverage Discovery Education’s two decades of experience in the edtech industry to deliver a curriculum that supplements school education on a massive scale, according to VP and educational publisher Akimi Gibson in a press release.

Discovery’s learning platform will also be collaborating with educators nationwide to help develop future content for the channel that focuses on coding, STEAM learning and promoting healthy habits.

In other Sesame news this week, SC Johnson is sponsoring a series of three new videos on Sesame Street’s YouTube channel to celebrate Earth Month by encouraging families to live healthier and more sustainable lives.
