Aim: In March 2014, AIESEP members from six countries, coordinated by the University of Padua, have put together their expertise in preparing a proposal in response to the call entitled “One resource kit for teachers” promoted by the WADA, the UNESCO, the IOC, the IPC, the ICSSPE and the International Fair Play Committee. The main objectives of this project are to map curriculum requirements for values-based education (VbE) across the globe, and to develop and pilot a contemporary resource kit for teachers that supports the delivery of VbE through sport. Methods: The project is articulated into three phases: a literature search on VbE through sport and on good practice examples; a global scan on VbE curricula using a qualitative method; the development of a resource kit for teachers for promoting the values of Respect, Inclusion and Equity. A further phase will be the review of the toolkit contents according to the feedback received from educators across the globe. Results: The review of the literature establish a concrete foundation for VbE through sport (Koh e Camirè, 2015). Curriculum goals, requirements for VbE, barriers facing student health, and challenges related to student engagement in PE and sports were queried in the global scan. Respondents comprised 52 professionals from 36 countries; reaching all inhabited continents. Results supported the toolkit development structuring the contents on three levels according to an ecological approach: micro- (focusing on individual factors), meso- (involvement of social environmental factors such as relations with classmates, teachers, the schoolmates) and macro-level (consideration of the school in the community). Conclusions: The toolkit has been based on a solid scientific literature that underlined how active learning strategies are effective in delivering VbE.

Abstract

Aim: In March 2014, AIESEP members from six countries, coordinated by the University of Padua, have put together their expertise in preparing a proposal in response to the call entitled “One resource kit for teachers” promoted by the WADA, the UNESCO, the IOC, the IPC, the ICSSPE and the International Fair Play Committee. The main objectives of this project are to map curriculum requirements for values-based education (VbE) across the globe, and to develop and pilot a contemporary resource kit for teachers that supports the delivery of VbE through sport. Methods: The project is articulated into three phases: a literature search on VbE through sport and on good practice examples; a global scan on VbE curricula using a qualitative method; the development of a resource kit for teachers for promoting the values of Respect, Inclusion and Equity. A further phase will be the review of the toolkit contents according to the feedback received from educators across the globe. Results: The review of the literature establish a concrete foundation for VbE through sport (Koh e Camirè, 2015). Curriculum goals, requirements for VbE, barriers facing student health, and challenges related to student engagement in PE and sports were queried in the global scan. Respondents comprised 52 professionals from 36 countries; reaching all inhabited continents. Results supported the toolkit development structuring the contents on three levels according to an ecological approach: micro- (focusing on individual factors), meso- (involvement of social environmental factors such as relations with classmates, teachers, the schoolmates) and macro-level (consideration of the school in the community). Conclusions: The toolkit has been based on a solid scientific literature that underlined how active learning strategies are effective in delivering VbE. The project challenges Partners in developing a toolkit that embraces diversities across cultures and disciplines. Nevertheless, the toolkit would inspire changes in teachers’ practices on VbE across all continents.
