If your school is temporarily closing or going online due to the pandemic, Keesler Federal has a partnership with Banzai, a financial, online learning, is accessible from any internet-connected device, including tablets and smartphones at home. These lessons are appropriate for all ages, and come set up with three categories – Junior (8-12), Teen (13-17), and Plus (adults of all ages).
All you and your students have to do to get started is log in. Teachers will simply need to send out a link to the login page and the class-specific code that is generated upon registering your classroom.
Banzai includes these great features:
- Interactive library – This is a huge resource with 70 financial articles, 20 financial calculators, and there are a lot of ways you can teach with the library. Some of the Teen and Plus workbook activities already integrate this library.
- Junior, Teen, and Plus are recommended but not restricted to their designated age groups. If your students did well at Junior or Teen and need an extra challenge, have them advance to Plus!
- All three courses above have unpredictable outcomes, which gives them a lot of replay value. If your students playing Plus saved enough to buy one of the less-expensive houses, have them play again and go for a bigger prize! (Hint: Extra credit will help with that.)
- The workbooks that complement each course have their own PDF versions online that can be printed out any time! (Junior Activity Kit, Teen Workbook, Plus Workbook).
As always, we’re is here to help. Email us with any questions you may have using Banzai.
