Values. The importance of values.

Nowadays, there is a great debate about values. A large part of society thinks that they have disappeared and on the other hand it is the most modern society that thinks that only values ​​have changed, this change depends in turn of the technological and social advances that take place in a society.

As we grow we develop in the social, affective, psychomotor and cognitive domain in turn acquiring some or other values ​​of each. The main center of reference is society (family, school, peer group …). “From the time the child leaves home until he reaches the school, his brain receives hundreds of stimuli that will influence the development of his personality “(Arufe, 2011, p.5). All therefore we are a reference, and we as future teachers will also be and with a very important role, since the personality of the individual is formed mainly during his childhood.

Parents begin by instilling values ​​from home, but when inscribing their children in a type of center determine the secondary values ​​that are inculcated. The essential values ​​will always be given independently of the type of center, but for example in a public center will work more secularism and diversity, while in a concert will be given more insistently solidarity, respect for the neighbor … (Ochoa, A, 2014).

Currently there are materials, resources and projects on how to educate in values, an example is a web page ( where we can Find different videos that treat each one about certain values, such as respect, companionship, solidarity … A program also very interesting is the one carried out by the city of Andújar (Jaén), in which we can see different activities to take Out in the classroom with our students to develop and increase the specified values. (Guidance Andújar, 2013)

In addition, we find different methodologies depending on the subject on which values ​​to emphasize in each one, such as the physical education project where stress, motivation, as well as negative values ​​that should not be given.

It is an extremely important topic and nowadays it is easier to work because we find infinite ways of being able to carry out the development of values ​​and also to work specific values ​​grouply and individually in the classroom. Above all, we educate people who must be full of values.

In the subjects of school management and didactic, the purpose is to learn from the experiences of each one. So, each group has elaborated a cardboard expressing their experiences during the school period.
In my group, we have decided to do a dynamic and visual work using images rather than texts, a lot of colors, big titles… The organization of the cardboard is divided into the emotional values, the methodologies(traditional and modern), extracurricular activities, the organization of the classes and the evaluation( quantitative and qualitative) all of them based on our experiences.
Today, we have a debate in class about the books of education that are uploaded in the campus. We commented the books “Relatar nuestras vidas” and “Cajas de vida”.
In the first one, one part of the class supported the idea of commenting the news but the rest of people didn´t agree because is difficult to carry out by little children.
The second book was accepted by us because it supports talk through objects so help children to express themselves.
Our group has put on the cardboard our common experiences, and the results we think are good so, we are satisfied with this activity.

In this picture we show the final work.IMG_7706
