FLLAME – New Financial Literacy Courses
Date posted: March 18, 2015
FLLAME – Financial Literacy and Learning for Aboriginals Means Empowerment – is a new series of financial literacy Moodle courses developed by the Ontario Native Literacy Coalition in partnership with the Canadian Literacy and Learning Network.
It was developed to holistically and culturally provide the most up-to-date information that impacts on course participants’ knowledge, skills, attitudes and feelings related to financial matters. The way people think, feel and react to money situations will be explored to get the students thinking about their own spending styles and attitudes about money. This will empower adult learners to make informed decisions as to what changes they can incorporate. FLLAME will provide an historical/cultural perspective on how Indigenous people managed their resources, and how those ancestral values can be applied to today’s context.
The courses are:
1. Making the Mo$t of Our Re$our¢e$
2. Tra¢king our Re$our¢e$ – Budgeting
3. Choo$ing Product$ and $ervice$
4. Planning Ahead & $etting $mart Goal$
5. Keeping Your $ense$ $harp – Staying Informed
Each course contains an overview, emotions and money, culture, financial teaching, tricksters and a quiz. Click here to visit the FLLAME Moodle site and view some of the course content as a guest.
