The Values Exchange (VX) is a unique web-based thinking environment. The VX community allows students to explore any social issue using 'Facebook-style' technology and powerful social concepts (my feelings, hopes, ideals, equality, law etc). Students eagerly grasp the chance for online debate about situations that really matter to them. Students can post unlimited issues of their own, and explore a comprehensive dashboard of results as soon as they submit their ideas.

This session will explain exactly how teachers can use the Values Exchange Community to enhance their teaching in all areas of the curriculum. In addition, participants will:
understand the background to this thinking environment
how students can best use it
how to set up their own cases for debate
how to engage students in exploring results and interpreting rich meaning from the data
