TV since its first telecast has always been an important part for not only entertainment but also for gaining information and learning new things. Hence learning is not only limited to writing services, but also TV and media are playing an important role in it.
When we talk about educational TV shows, we instantly think about kids; kids learn a lot with the colors or animated characters that sing and dance and perform clumsy acts that are fun to watch while they teach you something interesting during their acts.
Although we should keep away our kids from screens, it is important that when they are allowed to have their screen time, they should watch something useful and educational that can help them grow in their life, also the time with a screen should produce some positive outcome on their lives.
There are a whole lot of educational TV shows available that are really valuable and are making kids smarter day by day. It is hard to list only three, but then some are more favorite to people than the others.
The 1966 show is one of the first educational shows in TV history which was produced by J.G Cooney and Lloyd Morrisett, vice president of Carnegie Foundation. At this stage, it was only in discussion on how one can use TV for facilitating education to kids who can or cannot afford schools for any reason. Discussions and research went on for 2 years under CTW (Children television Workshop), after that, a grant was received from not only the US government but also Ford Foundation and Carnegie foundation. This show has been one of the favorite shows to many since its early days, and every child from 80s and 90s have been in love in it and still, children are loveing it.
