Our school workshops teach financial literacy and encourage students to make smart money choices in an authentic learning space.
Students learn about their financial needs at various life stages and will be able to develop their financial capabilities to plan for their future. We worked with principals, teachers and NIE lecturers to design the learning materials. Our survey data provide evidence that Smart Money Workshop improves students' financial well-being and inculcates the right values during their growing up phase.
The table below shows a list of approved vendors schools can approach to run financial literacy programmes should they wish to apply for co-funding under the MoneySense grant scheme.
Gamified learning is a teaching method that incorporates elements of game design and play into educational content to make learning more engaging and interactive.
We use our proprietary board game and mobile application to simulate real-world experiences during our workshop. Students are challenged to be experimental while learning important values and having fun!
The goal of gamified learning is to increase engagement and motivation among learners, as well as to make learning more effective by providing opportunities for active participation and feedback. Gamified learning has been shown to be effective in improving learning outcomes and retention.
Our board game was designed and developed with support from the Lifelong Learning Council. The Lifelong Learning Council, which consists of private and public sector leaders and was set up by the Skillsfuture Singapore (SSG) and Workforce Singapore (WSG) formerly known as Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA).
Our workshop encapsulates relevant, up-to-date current affairs that students will encounter at different stages of their life. We empower students to navigate their career pathways and lifelong learning opportunities in a safe learning environment. At the end of the workshop, they will able to think critically, make informed decisions and apply their knowledge to real-world situations. Students will be equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in their future endeavors.
