How do you avoid identity theft? What kinds of information and photos are least risky to post on social media? How do students avoid running up a bill on their parents’ credit cards while they’re using an app? How do you recognize false information on the internet? These are a sample of the questions answered in this one-day teacher workshop as we explore basic concepts in economics and personal finance.
In this workshop, teachers will experience lessons that they can use in their classrooms, while also teaching students essential skills in economics and personal finance. The session will also feature an expert in cybersecurity who will be available to answer participant questions.
A light breakfast and a full lunch will be provided. Participants will receive teaching materials at no cost.
