Episode 32:Econkids Take Financial Literacy to New Levels

September 08, 2010 By: admin Category: bank accounts, budgets, charity, Educational programs, entrepreneurship, introduction, investments, loans, resources, stock market, taxes, unemployment 3 Comments →

CLICK TO {{{ LISTEN }}}



Ms. Rodgers is the Project Director of the RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PROJECT ON ECONOMICS AND CHILDREN, and has spent the past several years heading up this project with her coauthor.  Listen as she explains the origins of her project and the depth of the study she’s gone through to bring us one of the most user-friendly and useful resources for children’s financial literacy on the web.

RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PROJECT ON ECONOMICS AND CHILDREN

MISSION:
The website for the Rugters project provides teachers, parents, and volunteers with ideas for using children’s literature to introduce economics to children.  We review new books from leading publishers and makes selections for “Book of the Month” and “Top Five” categories.

Unlike many of the existing websites on economics education, EconKids focuses on younger students in elementary school.  Its user-friendly design can help to generate quick teaching ideas that are based on current research in economics and education.

WEBSITE FEATURES:

Top 5 Books By Concept. Instructors can click on an economics concept to get a list of our “Top Five” choices for acclaimed children’s books that use enjoyable stories to teach an economics lesson. The selection of all books is based on objective research criteria and on direct experience in teaching with the books.

Book of the Month. Some of these books are not to be missed.  Check our current and previous picks for “Book of the Month” when looking for excellent book ideas in devising reading strategies and social studies lesson plans.

New Books. Stay up to date with this link to high-quality, newly-published children’s books with valuable economics lessons.  Our original reviews  focus on how economics concepts are woven into each book.

Research. Interested readers can download working papers on economics education directly from the EconKids website.  The research papers focus on pedagogical strategies, economics content standards, assessment tools in economics education, and how children learn economics.

Content Standards. This page contains links to all the states’ content standards in economics.

Text-to-World Connections. These books can be used to explore “text-to-world” connections in which students relate the ideas from their books to the economic world around them.  Examples include the 2006 Nobel Prize winners for Peace and for Economics.

Helpful Links. Here you will find a short list of organizations with the most useful resources for promoting economic and financial literacy among students of all age.

The Mouse rules! This episode reveals the hidden financial POWER that young people and all Internet users have today in an exciting discussion between Dr. Kathy King and Mark Gura. They explore how students, young adults and all Internet users have tremendous power charting and shaping the decisions of big business, research and development decisions, and marketing efforts across the globe. Better understanding the students we work with in k-12 and also adult learners, helps us to better address and meet their financial literacy needs. In addition, we can demonstrate to them how much financial POWER they have in each mouse click, and that their age group- whatever it is– has great power and importance to the business world. What a fantastic basis for realizing their roles and need to be critical consumers and demand what they want. Drawing upon several outstanding recent articles about digital technology and teenager habits and brain development, Kathy and Mark further synthesize the major books which have contributed to our better understanding of the impact of users and the Internet on finance through business today.
