What America’s failing schools can learn from “Sesame Street” - FELIKS GARCIA, THE DAILY DOT

What Levine and Kearney found, though, was a rather intriguing equivalency between the lessons of Sesame Street and MOOCs, or “massive open online-courses,” a recent trend in accessible higher education. “If we can do this with Sesame Street on television,” Levine and Kearney write, “we can potentially do this with all sorts of electronic communications.” Such a development could result in massive changes in access for lower-income Americans unable afford a university education. What’s stopping us from bridging the gap between the elementary benefits of Sesame Street and higher ed—from secondary school through college? http://www.salon.com/2015/06/13/what_americas_failing_schools_can_learn_from_sesame_street_partner/
