When so much spending is done online, or digitally even when in-store, surely it makes sense that we explore how cyber resilience can help us look after our finances? The UK Strategy for Financial Wellbeing aims for more ‘children and young people getting a meaningful financial education’ and we believe that cyber resilience forms a significant part of this.
This presentation explores the links between financial education and cyber resilience and ideas, such as:
- explore how to make better spending decisions
- understand how advertisers and influencers encourage us to spend our money
- learn effective strategies to keep our money as safe and secure as possible
By taking the time to understand how children and young people spend their time and money online, while reflecting on their own online habits, practitioners can make learning more reflective and representative of what their learners experience. By linking these curricular areas, the learning becomes more engaging, relevant and realistic.
