“Playing economics: innovative methods to spread financial literacy”
Economic and Financial Literacy is basic knowledge possibly to be acquired early in life to make individual financial decisions better informed and more effective. However, important gaps remain to be filled, particularly in relation to younger generations and educational methods. Hence, the need for innovative technologies of education, such as games and on-line tools that allow learning through active involvement and participation.
On the occasion of the Global Money Week, CeRP-Collegio Carlo Alberto and PUSH present the board game “ANGLE”, designed to improve the financial literacy of young people.
The game is one of the results of the EU-funded project ANGLE – “A network game for life-cycle education”, an initiative that targets university students and addresses financial education challenges through a life-cycle approach, suggesting that it is crucial to consider long-term consequences when making financial choices.
The webinar will emphasize the importance of financial education and the need for entertaining pedagogical methods. The ANGLE game designers will explain the co-creation approach applied to the game development and testing, which involved hundreds of students in different EU countries.
The second part of the event will be open to researchers, designers, and other experts to present their own projects related to financial literacy and edutainment. This will be an occasion to exchange best practices and innovative instruments in financial education.
