Sesame Street says videogames are good for kids

The Joan Ganz Clooney Center from the Sesame Workshop has issued a report called Game Changer, and it states that the government and special interest groups should give gaming a little slack.

Instead, research should be conducted on the positive effect it has on children, because according to the report, games can be educational, physically, and beneficial when used in the classroom.

Sesame Workshop and the Ganz Clooney Center’s purpose is to “foster innovation in children’s learning through digital media”.
