Interview with Gary Knell of Sesame Workshop

Gary Knell, President and CEO of Sesame WorkshopGlobal initiatives are often discussed but rarely implemented, and rarely come in the form of a forty-year-old television show. With the international expansion of Sesame Street, one of the most innovative and engaging children’s programs is establishing early childhood learning curriculum throughout the globe.

Sesame Workshop President and CEO, Gary Knell, spoke on innovation and early childhood development at the 2009 WISE Summit in Doha, Qatar.

Education Futures was able to corner Mr. Knell after an awards dinner and ask him about a globalized Sesame Street, emerging technology, and Baby Einstein.
