What is Puppetools?
Puppetools is an emerging worldwide learning community that shapes and directs its own training and teacher-led research with a specialized focus on play.
Puppetools is not theater. It is a teaching and learning language of handheld ideas and symbols.
With its revolutionary ‘play language’ and play-based communication system, Puppetools equips teachers with the tools and know-how of play-based communication in classrooms ranging from pre-K to college-level foreign language and teacher education.
Recognized internationally as a bridge between brain research and the classroom, Puppetools has advanced play as a foundational “learning birthright.” In its pioneering study of puppet play, Puppetools has identified a powerful wavelength of brain-directed communication energy to which children are innately tuned.
