A new financial literacy toolkit focusing on personal finance management was launched at the PERL conference in March 2012. This toolkit is the third in the Active Methodology Images and Objects series and aims at helping learners gain knowledge about personal finance and terms related to this theme, as well as helping them apply this understanding in an integrated manner in their daily lives. The toolkit provides an original card game which can be used as a part of the learning process.
The Images and Objects Toolkit is for facilitators and teachers interested in education for sustainable development.
The booklet includes step-by-step instructions for planning and implementing Education for Sustainable Development activities by using images and objects, together with a starter kit of sample images.
The toolkit is designed to support and encourage teachers, tutors and lecturers to integrate some of the concepts of sustainable development into teaching and learning.
It focuses in particular on using photographs and a range of active teaching and learning approaches and strategies to explore the themes of personal consumption, climate change and responsible living. Contact email@example.com for a free hard copy.
