The first webinar was hosted on “Story-telling as a Pedagogy for Foundational Stage”. The theme is drawn from the recommendation of NEP-2020 and NCF-FS 2022 for Foundational Stage. The participants of the webinar were teachers, teacher educators, administrators, policy planners, students and parents in India and Finland.
India has a rich and diverse range of storytelling methods. There are some that are told through the medium of dance, music and also through drawings and paintings. The Indian folklore encompasses the Panchatantra- a collection of animal fables and Jataka Tales which revolve around Lord Buddha’s previous incarnations. The ancient epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata are the cornerstones of Indian folklore.
For the purpose of the webinar four story telling techniques were showcased:
- Kavad Katha
- Storytelling through Drama
- String and Shadow Puppets
