Opera Comica pentru Copii
Module 3 was addressed to the pedagogues, teachers and youth workers and was held by the four romanian trainers. This activity, initially planned to take place in a single day, in April, was implemented during February-March 2021, due to the SARS COV-2 restrictions – we adapted the module on individual workshops with pedagogues.
The workshops were about the presentation if the project, the importance of improv as part of enriching the teaching process through creativity, the presentation of the brochure and of the improv movement exercises
There was more a theoretical and psychological approach we had on this module. It was more like a dialogue and a brainstorming with our participants. We talked about the values of what improv and especially movement – creative movement brings to children in these times of pandemic. It was a real success to see that everyone was concerned in finding solutions and sharing personal experiences.
The best part of it…and I guarantee you it was wonderful – was to see how each pedagogue and teacher was no longer an independent individual, but together they, we all, became an entity, a common body, a unitary mind in an attempt to find solutions.
