VASP (2011)
Giving Voice to the Impacts of Values Education identifies five key and
interrelated impacts of the VASP:
1. Values consciousness
2. Wellbeing
3. Agency
4. Connectedness
5. Transformation

“The development of a values consciousness was also enhanced through the many
opportunities for dialogue and communication provided across the clusters.”
“Personal stories also played a central role in embedding values consciousness in
many of the cluster schools and communities.”

“The evidence indicates that student wellbeing was enhanced through the application of values-focused and student-centred pedagogies, which allowed students to reflect deeply on the nature of values and what these mean to them and others.”
“There is also evidence that shows changes in students’ understanding of the impact of their actions on the wellbeing of others.”

Level 3- Post Conventional Morality:
• Stage 5 - Social Contract and Individual Rights
At this stage, people begin to account for the differing values, opinions, and beliefs of other people. Rules of law are important for maintaining a society, but members of the society should agree upon these standards.
- world viewed as having different perspectives & should be mutually respected across differing communities and people
- social contract

Stage Four- Formal Operational Stage:
ability to think in an abstract manner
ability to combine and classify items in a more sophisticated way
capacity for higher-order reasoning.

“…age 11+ years, the child begins to manipulate ideas in its head, without any dependence on concrete manipulation; it has entered the formal operational stage. It can do mathematical calculations, think creatively, use abstract reasoning, and imagine the outcome of particular actions.”
“Piaget concluded that … the children were thinking logically, in the abstract, and could see the relationships between things. These are the characteristics of the formal operational stage.”
