Enhancing Theory of Mind, Creativity and Positive Emotions through Drama Pedagogy

Macarena-Paz CELUME

Paris Descartes University

The main objective of this workshop is to experience some of the activities of the Drama Pedagogy Training “Emoted” complementing it by showing empirical evidence on how it developed theory of mind, creativity and positive emotions in primary school children.

The first part of the workshop will be a theoretical frame to share the theories we used to describe the competencies we aimed to develop and the quantitative and qualitative data we analysed.


The second part of the workshop will be a short training of certain games used during the workshop in order to give a concrete understanding of the didactics of games as well as the method in the way of teaching.
