    • Values and Virtues: A Vision of Catholic Education
    • 2
      “We must begin trying to reclaim the nation. The first step in the reclaiming process is to concentrate on values and recommit to virtuous living…The good people have to work hard together to build a society on values/virtuous living. They must give to the young an experience of living with values and virtue.”His Grace, Archbishop Edward J Gilbert,Catholic News, January 2007

      Technological 20 yrs or so.
      The End of the age of authority
      The Sexual Revolution

    • What is Challenging our Values
      Hunter Gatherer Brute Strength
      Industrial Intellect for the few brute strength masses
      Technological All are knowledge workers
      There is a shift in Paradigm
    • The web 2.0 generation
      In this globalised environment interactivity and participatory communication is the new environment.
      Facebook, Wikis, Google, skype etc.
      There are digital natives, immigrants and tourist
    • Digital Natives
      Digital natives will move markets and transform industries, education, and global politics. The changes they bring about as they move into the workforce could have an immensely positive effect on the world we live in. By and large, the digital revolution has already made this world a better place. And digital natives have every chance of propelling society further forward in myriad ways if we let them. (Harvard research group, Palfrey and Gasser, 2008)
    • Digital Natives
      The fact is , more and more bright, otherwise talented kids are becoming disengaged by the old fashioned school process. Their digital native minds don’t work the old way. They are bored out of their minds (Jim Craig retired school teacher).

    • Values for a digital age
      Our schools have to do values formation

      Civics
      Media literacy
      Digital literacy
      Our families have to do values formation in the home
      Our Nation has to become a community of values
    • Role of Parents & Teachers
      We need to revisit the role of the family within a vision of the nation and the kind of community we want to become.
      Our witness is more important than our instructions for our children
      We have to be involved in the life of our child—we need to teach this to all of our parents.
    • Catholic Education: A Vision
      Forming our students to be citizens grounded in faith, values and character, our schools will be:
      Learning faith communities, rooted in the Catholic tradition, nurturing on the multiple intelligence of students and teachers, forming Servant Leaders to build the Civilization of Love.
    • 17
      Learning faith communities
      We envision a life-long learning process that will form the community into the body of Christ in the world today. (Pope John Paul II Forward CCC)
      Learning by reflecting on our actions= Wisdom.
    • 18
      Learning faith communities
      Real learning gets to the heart of what it means to be human. Through learning we re-create ourselves. Through learning we become able to do something we never were able to do. Through learning we re-perceive the world and our relationship to it. Through Learning we extend our capacity to create, to be part of the generative process of life. There is within each of us a deep hunger for this type of learning,. It is as Bill O’Brian of Hanover Insurance says, ‘as fundamental to human beings as the sex drive.” ( Peter Senge, The Fifth Discipline P14)
    • 19
      Learning faith communities
      A Learning organization—An organization that is continually expanding its capacity to create its future. For such an organization it is not enough merely to survive. “Survival learning” or what is more often termed “adaptive learning” is important—indeed it is necessary. But for a learning organisation, adaptive learning” must be joined by generative learning,” learning that enhances our capacity to create. ( Peter Senge, The Fifth Discipline P14)
    • Catholic Education: A Vision
      Forming our students to be citizens grounded in faith, values and character, our schools will be:
      Learning faith communities, rooted in the Catholic tradition, nurturing the multiple intelligence of students and teachers, forming Servant Leaders to build the Civilization of Love.
    • Rooted in the Catholic tradition
      16. Paul VI taught that progress, in its origin and essence, is first and foremost a vocation: “in the design of God, every man is called upon to develop and fulfill himself, for every life is a vocation .” This is what gives legitimacy to the Church's involvement in the whole question of development.  
    • Rooted in the Catholic tradition
      Pope Paul VI set out from this vision in order to convey two important truths. The first is that the whole Church, in all her being and acting — when she proclaims, when she celebrates, when she performs works of charity — is engaged in promoting integral human development. The second truth is that authentic human development concerns the whole of the person in every single dimension (C&V #11)
    • Rooted in the Catholic tradition
      Catholic identity is deeply connected to Integral human development:
      Intellectual intelligence IQ
      Physical/bodily intelligence PQ
      Emotional Intelligence EQ
      Spiritual Intelligence SQ
      Where the church is true to her vocation, these four intelligences flourish.
      Values and Character require these four intelligences.
    • Catholic Education: A Vision
      Forming our students to be citizens grounded in faith, values and character, our schools will be:
      Learning faith communities, rooted in the Catholic tradition, nurturingthe multiple intelligence of students and teachers, forming Servant Leaders to build the Civilization of Love.
    • Building on the Multiple Intelligence of Students and Teachers
      I want my children to understand the world, but not just because the world is fascinating and the human mind is curious. I want them to understand it so that they will be positioned to make it a better place. Knowledge is not the same as morality, but we need to understand if we are to avoid past mistakes and move in productive directions. An important part of that understanding is knowing who we are and what we can do... Ultimately, we must synthesize our understandings for ourselves. The performance of understanding that try matters are the ones we carry out as human beings in an imperfect world which we can affect for good or for ill. (Howard Gardner 1999: 180-181)
    • Howard Gardner Multiple intelligence
      Linguistic intelligence ("word smart"):
      Logical-mathematical intelligence 
      ("number/reasoning smart")
      Spatial intelligence ("picture smart")
      Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence ("body smart")
      Musical intelligence ("music smart")
      Interpersonal intelligence ("people smart")
      Intrapersonal intelligence ("self smart")
      Naturalist intelligence ("nature smart")

      Forming Servant Leaders to build the Civilization of Love.
      The five keys of Servant leadership
      Strength finders—Finding and building the strength of his/her team
      Willing to blaze the trail—clearing the path so others can run fast—moving obstacles and mentoring others through stories.
      Serving leaders raise the bar—They look for leaders that can make other leaders.
      Inverting the pyramid—the leader is at the bottom—EGO=edging God Out
      Articulating the great purpose of the organization.

      God’ Call
      14 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father's family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?“ (Esther 4:14)
    • God’s Call
      This new Millennium demands more from us and our children than any other time. Let us answer the call
    • Catholic Education: A Vision
      Forming our students to be citizens grounded in faith, values and character, our schools will be:
      Learning faith communities, rooted in the Catholic tradition, nurturing the multiple intelligence of students and teachers, forming Servant Leaders to build the Civilization of Love.
