E-learning for educators: the Moral Development on-line course
We present a Moodle platform aimed at educators –both teachers and parents- who wish to know more about children’s moral development and education. The “Moral Development” on-line course presents a complete description of children’s cognitive and moral milestones and invites participants to present cases of moral conflicts both at homes and in schools and share ways of coping with them. We mostly deal with conflicts such as: lying, stealing, lack of respect, lack of responsibility and injustice. The platform includes animations, links, movies, and complementary info.
