Puppet Use in Education

Teachers Training Workshop

Numerous articles shared by academics about the benefits of puppet use in child education at preschool and primary education level proves how accurate the training activities of Izmir International Puppet Days are for teachers. With every possibility since the day it started, our festival, which organizes activities to emphasize the importance of puppet use in education as an indispensable tool, continues this direction by working with Ming Ri Institute for Arts Education (Hong Kong) and Ege University Faculty of Education, supporting puppet use in education by training the pre-school and primary school teachers. Puppet teaches the child to develop the language, use the body language, share, collaborate, wait, adjust their voice tone. In addition, it contributes to muscle development and hand-eye coordination. It is also an excellent guidance tool. In this four-day workshop, the teachers will have detailed information on puppets under four headings: Paper Puppet, Sock Puppet, Toy Theater, and Finger Puppet; learn how to make a puppet and use it.
