“This project began two years ago, with the call for tenders from the AMF, and we are happy to present the result to teachers,” explains Ann Quesnel, educational technology advisor at Société GRICS, we met at the occasion of the AQEP congress. Joanne Tremblay, edimaster of Carrefour-Éducation, adds: “Moreover, these are the first activities of the BIM bank accessible to everyone”.

BIM (for “bank of measuring instruments”) is a collection of assessment situations that promote the assessment of skills and knowledge, developed in collaboration with teachers and educational advisers from Quebec school boards.

The 12 financial literacy tasks of the program " My pennies, I can see »Allow students to develop their understanding of the concepts of saving, spending, income, money, earning, budgeting, bartering and scarcity; the difference between wants and needs as well as the consequences of financial decisions, good or bad.

There are 4 tasks per cycle, and they are available in French and English. They were designed in collaboration with Ekomini, the creators of an awesome educational piggy bank. Plug it into your computer and children have access to their "virtual bank" and games to help you learn to save.
