Event description

Description

"Schools ignore personal finance lessons and fail Generation Debt. *

“It is compulsory in every secondary school, though that does not apply to academies and free schools. Around 35%-45% of schools were actually delivering financial education in 2014”*

“The mandate to teach personal finance education hasn’t really worked. We need teachers to be more comfortable and confident enough to deliver high-quality financial education. There is a need for much more training for teachers.”*

* The Guardian

Kids as young as seven can understand money, so why aren't we teaching them?

This demo session aims at primary and secondary school teachers, after class clubs and private educational institutions.

The OK Project is a market-leading, international education institution teaching management skills, financial awareness and career orientation in an interactive and inspirational environment for children and teenagers aged 7 to 18.

The session is a demo of two games, The Banking Card Game and the Moneytainment Box.

It is an open floor presentation where the OTP would love your feedback during and /or after the presentation. The aim of this session is to gain an honest and upfront vital feedback in order to produce a game that will add benefit to the end user and provide a vital learning tool to help the next generation and beyond to begin to understand the importance of financial management.

What's in it for you:

The exercises contained in individual lessons offer a wide range of financial topics, from income and expenses through family budgeting to responsible money handling,

  • strengthening logical and critical thinking
  • collaboration
  • financial planning to name a few.

Both games are very universal with regards to concepts and terminology, apart from introducing such concepts as income, expenses, budgeting, bills, the importance of frugality, ATM, the emphasis is placed on developing critical thinking, collaboration, planning, text comprehension, to name a few.

The effectiveness of this methodology is proven by the preparation of hundred thousand students in the past seven years in various educational centres of the owner of OK Project is OTP Fáy András Foundation.
