Abstract

Like the IBM KidSmart Early Learning program designed for children ages 3 to 7, the producers of Sesame Street designed a multi-media, worldwide initiative, Panwapa Island, geared at reaching children from ages 4-7 from the deserts of Afghanistan to the Cockpit Mountains of Jamaica. The multimedia platform was developed after many years of research and testing. The final product is a range of media including online, video, and print materials geared at early learners.
