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. The second day of the workshop will take place at the New York Stock Exchange, Museum of American Finance and Federal Reserve Bank. Lunch will be on your own that day.
Registration for this workshop begins at 8:30 a.m
