Modern learners need to be VALUES LITERATE

Modern learners need to be VALUES LITERATE

VALUES LITERACY, along with DIGITAL LITERACY, is already becoming a prerequisite for participating meaningfully in society and in the world of work. Our values make life meaningful and give it purpose. ‘VALUES LITERACY' could be considered as individuals' understanding and knowledge about a wide spectrum of values and their ability to choose and skilfully apply appropriate values within different settings in real-life situations. Quality, systematic values education, as an integral part of a modern, 21-st century curriculum, promotes ‘whole-person’ development, gradually building a fluency in values that will serve children and young people well both during their school careers and on into their adult lives.
