Financial Literacy for Students - The Money Fair Project
Limited Capacity seats available

It is never too early to talk with our kids about money (www.talkwithourkidsaboutmoney.com).
The Canadian Foundation for Economic Education provides students, teachers and parents the resources to discuss important financial literacy topics and provides our youth, beginning in elementary school cycle three, the tools to begin understanding the importance of managing and saving their money. Students will be encouraged to work on “money” projects with the ultimate goal of putting on their own “money fair”. Through an interactive inquiry based method, students choose a topic on money which interests them in their daily lives. These topics might include: cost of a cell phone, how much does it cost to play hockey?, what is the cost of my upcoming graduation?. Students will be encouraged to research a topic of interest and collaboratively plan a presentation of these projects to their class, multiple classes in the school, or in the auditorium to a larger group. The reality of what things cost today and credit protection for youth is an important aspect of the Talk with our Kids about Money program. Students become inspired by taking part in a money fair which will guide them on the importance of being informed financial citizens in their future.

Meaningful Learning
Limited Capacity seats available

Notre présentation (Équipe du Bison News Éric Arsenault et Fiona de Pippo) va présenter aux enseignants ce que l'équipe a créé à notre école pour améliorer la diffusion de nouvelles. L' équipe va aussi présenter leur atelier qu'ils offrent aux élèves du primaire afin de les aider à utiliser les nouveaux outils technologiques disponibles dans leurs écoles pour créer leur propre canal de nouvelles. L'équipe a documenté leur expérience en créant une vidéo qui présentent en image un compte-rendu de cet atelier. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTpoFKqDYyg&t=34s
Par la suite, l'Équipe voudrait soumettre les enseignants à un petit exercice de création d'une vidéo (création de questions, tournage avec Ipads que l'équipe va leur prêter, montage de leur vidéo et téléversement de leur vidéo vers leur nouveau canal youtube. Voici un mini aperçu de la présentation qu'Éric et Fiona veulent présenter.
Aperçu d'une mini présentation de leur projet en mai 2018 aux commissaires d'écoles de LBPSB
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEyeBS13GCI

Les participants vont apprendre qu'en utilisant les nouvelles technologies pour diffuser de l'information, on expose les apprenants dans un contexte d'emploi réel. De là vient le titre de la présentation Meaningful Learning. Par exemple, le Bison News est devenu un travail pour les étudiants. Toutes les semaines, les élèves avaient une job précise et ils ont appris que si quelqu'un ne faisait pas sa job comme il faut, il compromettait toute l'équipe. Pour notre responsable de scénario (élève de sec. 3) qui était dans un programme spécial parce qu'elle était faible en anglais a appris que c'était important de donner son 200% sinon, s'il y a des erreurs, ça retarde le tournage et la directrice de plateau (élève de sec. 5) lui fait savoir les conséquences de ses erreurs), etc... J'ai plein d'exemples à donner... Les participants vont apprendre qu'en observant des élèves de différents âges dans une même classe (équipe), ils apprennent à s'entraider entre eux et que le message passait beaucoup mieux par un élève plus vieux ou plus jeune que par une prof.
