TEACHING VALUES AN OLYMPIC EDUCATION TOOLKIT SECTION 1 INTRODUCTION TO OLYMPIC VALUES EDUCATION TEACHINGVALUES13 EDUCATIONAL VALUES OF OLYMPISM FIVE EDUCATIONAL VALUES HAVE BEEN HIGHLIGHTED FOR THIS TOOLKIT. THESE VALUES COME FROM THE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES, AND HAVE BEEN WORDED IN A WAY THAT SEEMS RELEVANT FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES. THEY INCORPORATE THE THREE DOMAINS OF LEARNING: COGNITIVE ( INTELLECTUAL), AFFECTIVE ( SOCIAL/ EMOTIONAL) AND KINESTHETIC ( PHYSICAL). A. JOY OF EFFORT Young people develop and practise physical, behavioural and intellectual skills by challenging themselves and each other in physical activities, movement, games and sport. B. FAIR PLAY Fair play is a sports concept, but it is applied worldwide today in many different ways. Learning fair play behaviour in sport can lead to the development and reinforcement of fair play behaviour in the community and in life. C. RESPECT FOR OTHERS When young people who live in a multicultural world learn to accept and respect diversity and practise personal peaceful behaviour, they promote peace and international understanding. D. PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE A focus on excellence can help young people to make positive, healthy choices, and strive to become the best that they can be in whatever they do. E. BALANCE BETWEEN BODY, WILL AND MIND Learning takes place in the whole body, not just in the mind, and physical literacy and learning through movement contributes to the development of both moral and intellectual learning. This concept became the foundation of Pierre de Coubertin's interest in a revival of the Olympic Games. Teaching suggestions and practical activities have been included for each of the five values in Section 4: " The Five Educational Values".
