The partnership is already having results, too.
For its most recently premiered original series for kids, “Pretzel and the Puppies,” Apple TV+ partnered with changemaker Tony Wagner, Ed.D., senior research fellow, Learning Policy Institute, and author of the book “Creating Innovators: The Making of Young People Who Will Change the World.” In the series, Pretzel and the puppies set out to “make their bark” by making their neighborhood a better place for their friends and neighbors. Wagner worked alongside showrunner Steve Altiere, the executive producers and Harper Collins to help develop the series and infuse lessons around the importance of asking questions and innovating to find new solutions to problems.
