ON TUESDAY 14TH APRIL THR PRE PRIMARY TEACHERS ATTENDED A WEBINAR ON ‘POWER OF PUPPETS’ IN LIFE AND IN EDUCATION BY MR RAVI SANTALANI AND MS SANGYA OJHA.
A webinar on The ‘Power of Puppets’ in Life and in Education was held by Mr Ravi Santalani and Ms Sangya Ojha on Tuesday 14th April.
They showed some very common things like a stapler, mop and a bunch of wool that could be used as puppets, by bringing life into them with some voice modulation. Ms Sangya explained how puppetry is a connective on every platform and how people get an instant smile on their face at the sight of a puppet. They also showed the Muppet, finger puppet, glove puppet, string puppet, and traditional shadow puppet. The techniques of basic finger movements that have to be synced with the lip movement of the puppet were explained. The importance of voice modulations for different types of puppets was emphasised upon. Overall the session was very informative and it opened new horizons for the teachers to make teaching more engaging for the kids.
