PRESENTED BY LISA-JANE O'CONNOR, PRESIDENT OF THE PRIMARY MATHEMATICS ASSOCIATION

This workshop is intended for all school staff working with students or involved in planning or program development who would like to know how to approach the teaching of money skills in the digital age. The Australian Consumer and Financial Literacy Framework is a key aspect of the Australian Curriculum and provides all educators working with children from 4 years to junior secondary with information about the knowledge, skills and understandings that all children need to be powerful consumer and financial citizens in the digital age.

Learning outcomes for this workshop include:

  • Developing an understanding of the consumer and financial literacy framework and how it impacts on the learning children are entitled to encounter about money and budget planning
  • Raising awareness of the range of resources that exist both nationally and in this State to support educators to develop learning environments which challenge children to develop strong understandings about “how money works”
  • Challenging participants to explore how they need to “tweak” and “stretch” the learning experiences they provide for children in this area to ensure they are competent financial operators in the digital age
  • Opportunity to play and trial some of the powerful resources and learning experiences which support learner development in this area
