Promoting financial literacy in pre-service teacher education through on-line modules

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contribution

Abstract

Opening Real Science (ORS) is 3-year Australian Government project led by Macquarie University supported by the Office for Learning and Teaching under the Enhancing the Training of Mathematics and Science Teachers Scheme (ETMST). ORS is developing a series of modules for implementation in teacher education programs, some of which focus on financial literacy: budgeting, investing and protecting, and modelling. The modules will be designed for active learning incorporating digital literacy themes to showcase implementation of technology integration into curriculum. Currently there are several trials in progress at three partner Australian universities. Evaluation data will inform the design-based approach to program re-development aimed at building the mathematical competence, and confidence of teachers.
