3 Great Educational Resources For Ethiopian Parents

Time Kids, National Geographic and Sesame Street Websites Can Bring Hours of Fun and Education to Every Household with a Computer

It is good news that Ethiopian parents are more involved than ever in the day to day education of their children. As the importance of parents, direct involvement in their children’s education has become evident companies are opening in Addis Ababa that cater to educational needs of kids of all ages. To a lesser degree, this is being complemented with Internet-based learning tools. We believe that internet is the future of learning. With this in mind, Diretube has put together a list of superb educational resources accessible to Ethiopian children today from any computer, smartphone or tablet.

Sesame Street

Thousands of grownups in Addis Ababa, especially those who attended private schools, have fond memories of  Sesame Street. Since its beginning days, Sesame Street has grown into an even more rewarding company for children and its website is accessible to children all over the world now. Notably, just like in the old days Sesame Street is still a not for profit company and declares its mission in the following words:

“Our mission is to help kids everywhere grow smarter, stronger and kinder.”

First, go to the website and sign up for hours of fun and educational resources for your kids. In addition, be sure to do downloads in wifi places if you want to keep mobile data costs down. That said outside of videos there is a lot to enjoy on the site. For example, the drawing section provides fun coloring exercises. And there are many word puzzle and number learning games.

This site offers resources including student articles starting from kindergarten all the way to the sixth grade. Many of us are familiar with the Time magazine which for decades has been sold around the National Theater in Addis Ababa, near hotels close to Bole airport and numerous other places.

The quality of the ‘Time for Kids’ does not disappoint and can really enhance and support your kids writing skills. Also, it is a great way to make your children conscious of the world around them.

National Geographic

Significantly, the regular National Geographic is also a well-known name in Ethiopian households around the city of Addis and beyond. Amazing footage of natural scenery around the world has convinced many of us.  We believe that this company is a world leader in exploring world geography and will be embraced by Ethiopian parents.

Similarly, many of us have also felt joy and pride as the National Geographic organized expeditions to Lalibela, Danakil Depression and other natural and man-made attractions in Ethiopia.

Therefore, this is all the more reason why Ethiopians parents are very likely to quickly adopt this site. The National Geographic for Kids website can be part of your kids routine entertainment and education.

The amazing website covers sections for animal, science, history, and geography. The registration is super easy and you can even use your Facebook login credentials. Ethiopian children would be joining a world community which will inspire and engage them throughout their formative years and beyond. We especially liked the ‘cool kids’ section. Notably, it has such quality offerings as “Lilly’s Plastic Clean-Up Mission” and “Explore the Earth With Green Peace”
