Honesty and Respect @ The Fabindia School
Joy Of Learning Season 14 Episode 1 - Recording of the session hosted at The Fabindia School as a part of the Learning Forward India Academy Professional Learning Program, focusing on Reading, Reflection and Relationships. The teachers, young and old, new and experienced, and young people take time to explore Values and take their learning forward. Take time to capture the values that people who know you would use to describe you. How do others perceive you, and what values are present or absent in their minds? Would these values be different depending on the context, e.g. as a work colleague, parent, wife/husband/partner? Be honest with yourself. Are our values always positive traits? I was once asked about the expression of anger and whether it should be considered a value. Does anger feature as a value in your list, and if so, how do you deal with it?
Joy Of Learning (JOL) comes from The Little Book of Values: Educating Children to Become Thinking, Responsible and Caring Citizens by Julie Duckworth and Ian Gilbert, exploring twenty-two values taught through schools. We live in a society consumed by materialism and the desire for more. The future of education rests on immutable values: Appreciation, Caring, Cooperation, Courage, Freedom, Friendship, Happiness, Honesty, Hope, Humility, Love, Patience, Peace, Quality, Respect, Responsibility, Simplicity, Thoughtfulness, Tolerance, Trust, Understanding, and Unity. This program will inspire you by using examples of where the values are already being used by children and adults in schools and share practical tools to stimulate discussion and philosophical debate. It will also help people take stock of their values and how they wish to lead their lives.
