Only for young people?
    • Bloom’s taxonomy of educational objectives (affective)Receiving The (student) passively pays attention. Without this level no learning can occur.Responding The (student) actively participates in the learning process, not only attends to a stimulus; the (student) also reacts in some way.Valuing The (student) attaches a value to an object, phenomenon, or piece of information.Organizing The (student) can put together different values, information, and ideas and accommodate them within his/her own schema; comparing, relating and elaborating on what has been learned.Characterizing The (student) holds a particular value or belief that now exerts influence on his/her behaviour so that it becomes a characteristic.
