Bringing financial education to life in the classroom
Banqer is a financial literacy tool designed to make financial education easy for teachers to deliver, as well as making it engaging and relevant for students.
It is an experiential learning tool that enables teachers to transform their classroom into a virtual economy for students to earn, spend, save, trade and invest. Through interacting with the platform, students learn important financial concepts and develop money management skills.
Teachers are supported with downloadable teaching resources on the financial concepts which include lesson plans, exercises and activities, and links to the Australian curriculum. Importantly, we appreciate teachers are super busy so Banqer is simple to set up and easy to manage. Moreover, it is made to be engaging for students.
