Taking Students Down the $martPath: Integrating Technology and Financial Literacy

This session will provide educators with an understanding of how to effectively integrate online teaching resources through a program developed by the University of Cincinnati Economics Center. $martPath was developed by leading practitioners working hand-in-hand with Ohio teachers. It has won two national curriculum awards. The program provides simple, fun lessons that bring economic and financial education to life in your classroom. $martPath units teach students about personal financial responsibility (such as saving, prudent spending, and prioritizing needs and wants) through grade-appropriate, curriculum-aligned, interactive lessons. The platform is a flexible piece of technology. It can be taught by a teacher in front of the classroom (utilizing technology such as a SmartBoard), in a computer lab, via student stations, or in a 1-to-1 computer/tablet classroom. $martPath’s flexibility is what makes it such a great resource for 1-8 grade teachers. Teachers can also administer pre/post assessments directly within the portal in order to track students’ learning. Aside from teaching important financial literacy skills, every grade level aligns to New Mexico’s Content Standards in Social Studies, English/Language Arts, and Mathematics. All $martPath units of study: • Are relevant and deliver on New Mexico’s content standards • Include embedded assessment so you can track and report on student progress • Are fun, simple-to-run and quick so they fit into your teaching program • Are high-quality, interactive and engaging
