Uses of Persona Dolls
Persona dolls are usually developed by a practitioner/educator to enable children to gain an awareness and understanding of diversity of different backgrounds and lifestyles and to help children learn strategies for dealing with unfairness. The dolls each have their own story, personality, family and cultural background and likes and dislikes
They are usually used in early childhood education but can also be used counseling and therapy.
I have a few extra purposes in mind for my group of dolls.
One of my potential projects for these Persona Dolls is what I call PD Cubed.
One or more of the Persona Dolls with their personal stories and QR codes directing to sources of information can be set up in Perspex cubes which can be used in Professional Development either as visual aids for a speaker or as a static display.
