Financial Literacy Education Accelerated Teaching Videos
The fact is…most financial education curriculums are boring, and boring means ineffective.
BORING = INEFFECTIVE
If kids aren’t paying attention, they aren’t learning and there’s nothing more boring than financial education lessons where you talk, they’re supposed to listen and then you have them fill out some type of worksheet.
Even adults would be bored.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
At Creative Wealth, we’re been using accelerated learning techniques in our Camp Millionaire and Money Game programs since 2005 and oh, what a difference they make. The kids have such a great time they can’t wait to come back the next day.
After one camp we taught a few years ago, one of the 13 year old boys said to me…
“Elisabeth, why can’t all teachers teach like you guys?”
That one made my heart melt. But really, it’s not me…it’s the accelerated teaching techniques we use. Here’s a list of what we use and what you’re learn in our Financial Literacy Education Teaching Videos:
- VAK: Teaching to all three learning styles…visual, auditory and kinesthetic.
- Enrolling Questions: how to engage your students from the beginning and keep them engaged to the end.
- Ask Don’t Tell: stop preaching and start teaching. Ask questions instead of telling them everything.
- Celebrations: when was the last time YOU had fun learning?
- Context vs. Content: how to create an environment that makes any education sticky.
- Flip charts: yes, get rid of the fancy electronic gadgets (including Powerpoint) and go back to what really works.
- Call-backs, suggestology and fill in the ______: learn how to get your students to tell you what they’re learning.
- State Changes: we all know that if they LOOK bored, they ARE bored. Learn how to change this instantaneously.
- Experience before content: the way you were taught was wrong. If you tell them what you’re going to teach them and they don’t want to learn that, you’ve lost them. Learn this amazing philosophy to keep them guessing and having fun while they learn.
- Music: this one aspect of teaching alone changes any learning environment from drab to dramatic.
- Rituals: creating an expectation of fun and what’s coming next helps students settle in quickly and start learning immediately.
Our financial literacy programs work for two reasons: WHAT we teach is different, compelling, engaging and relevant and HOW we teach locks in the lessons the first time. Our students rarely take notes and remember so much…just ask their parents about the conversatoins they have on the way home and for months to come.
COST: $99 for everything you need to turn your financial education curriculums (or any other curriculum for that matter) into so much fun that your students can’t wait to come back the next day to learn more.
