New interactive learning tools for ‘Sorted in Schools’ programme

(Last Updated On: June 16, 2020)

The Open Polytechnic has developed interactive learning scenarios for financial education programme Sorted in Schools.

Produced by the Commission for Financial Capability (CFFC), Sorted in Schools is a financial capability hub for secondary school students that aims to equip them with the knowledge and tools to make good decisions around money and money management.

The Open Polytechnic was selected by the CFFC to turn three paper-based resources into interactive online resources for the Sorted in Schools programme to teach about financial literacy topics such as budgeting and retirement saving.

“Sorted in Schools delivers key financial literacy resources for young New Zealanders. We are pleased we could offer our experience and skills in learning design and online learning delivery so Sorted in Schools can further the reach of their resources to engage young New Zealanders in learning about financial capability,” said Open Polytechnic Chief Executive, Dr Caroline Seelig.

Two tools

The Open Polytechnic’s Digital Experience team has created two tools, so far, Supermarket Shopper and Party Planner. Both allow users to explore different pathways with the user’s decisions resulting in a positive reaction on their decision making or providing the user with a range of information to think through before their next attempt.

A third tool on retirement savings is under development and will teach schools pupils about how NZ Super and KiwiSaver work. Check out the tools at Supermarket Shopper and Party Planner.
