Abstract

It is commonly spread the idea that sport and physical education (PE) allows the youth to experience a wide range of situations which enable them with the shaping of different forms of global citizenship. However, nowadays young people can be highly affected by complexity and rapid changes of modern societies, and this condition can hamper the quality of educational experiences. For purposes of this chapter, school PE can offer an ideal setting to apply innovative educative tools to develop significant values-based experiences, thus the “One resource kit for teachers” research project is presented in its constitutive phases. In the first part of the chapter, the theoretical framework surrounding the development of values and life skills education within PE and school sport programs is detailed. In the second part of the chapter, the different phases of the project (mapping curriculum requirements for values education across the globe, developing and piloting a contemporary resource kit for teachers that supports the delivery of their existing curriculum requirements for values-based education through sport and PE) are showed. The chapter concludes with brief information concerning investigations currently in place aimed at testing the developed material among some Italian schools.
