Looking Back and Ahead-

The Future is…

About Financial Literacy Education!

In this episode Kathy and Mark deliver a rousing discussion of where our nation and world is in the context of  financial literacy education as we record the final episode of the series 2nd year  in mid-February 2011.
It is snowy and cold in NJ and a bright sunny day in FL as our co-hosts record a remote podcast in their new format. (Kathy and her family moved to Florida in summer of 2010.)
Join us for reflection, and retrospection about what has transpired acorss the nation and most recently in the Middle East.
  • Does it connect with financial literacy?
  • What will it mean?
  • Will it last?
While we do not have a crystal ball, we know what we are seeing and can share the perspective of people informed in financial literacy education and pedagogy.
In addition what financial crisis has run through the USA in recent months? And do you know it will affect you students’ future education choices?
Listen in to find out.
Again no futuristic answers, but many issues are raised that the gernal public is not considering and which will crystalize in the coming months and years
Invitations for our listeners also abound and we finish up with a teacher’s rendition of our thanks to McGraw-Hill Companies for funding Year 3.

Episode 39: Teacher Reviews & Responses from ISTE / NECC Conference

How well does

Talking Fin Lit Podcast

measure up?

Mark shares an exciting report from the floor of the conference from hundreds of  teachers, PDers, administrators and tech coordinators!

Financial literacy education is “in demand” more than ever as more scools and teachers have realized the extreme need.

The result? Teachers, staff developers and tech coordinators are scrambling to find quality resources.

At ISTE NECC 2010 the great news is they discovered (like you have!!) that Talking Fin Lit Podcast and website provides a storehouse of resources. But that is not all! Our podcast discusses the  value and application of those resources for  teaching and learning in specific content areas.

Join us to hear what was being discussed, questions posed and the resulting direction it provides for the series as we get ready for Year 3 of Talking Fin Lit!
