Here’s what I learned on my snow day: Sesame Street is now promoting 21st Century skills with an old friend/new superhero, Super Grover 2.0. In these segments, Super Grover 2.0 introduces kids to concepts like observation, investigation, and questioning. Sure, numbers and the alphabet are important, but it’s wonderful to see that Sesame Street is trying to grow and change along with the rest of the educational world.
My other shoutout for the day is to Superheroine Joyce Valenza, who tirelessly (or so it seems) instructs and guides her fellow librarians through the avalanche (it is a snow day!) of online educational and technological resources.
