Join the Gen i Revolution and fight financial illiteracy.  This workshop will help teachers supplement investor education for middle and high school students through the online gaming world of Learning, Earning, and Investing for a New Generation®. The online game is set in a fictional world, not unlike ours, going through a similar financial and economic crisis. Players work with a team of characters to provide personal financial advice and financial power to the people. This workshop will show educators how to implement the 21 lessons from the book and this online game into any standard personal finance curriculum.

Participants will receive a free copy of Learning, Earning and Investing publication, learn how to play “Gen i Revolution”, light dinner, handouts, technology integration, creative lessons, and networking with colleagues.

Registration and dinner begin at 4:00.
