Tech-Friendly Strategies for Teaching Financial Literacy – Bonus Episode with Cha-Ching Money Smart Kids!

In this episode, Danielle Robinson, executive director of Jackson Charitable Foundation, joins to discuss financial literacy in the classroom. You’ll also hear about some free, tech-friendly resources to support teaching financial literacy to kids to help earn, save, spend, and donate.

Today’s episode is titled, “Tech-Friendly Strategies for Teaching Financial Literacy – Bonus Episode with Cha-Ching Money Smart Kids!” and it was so much fun chatting with Danielle Robinson, the executive director of Jackson Charitable Foundation. Financial literacy is a topic near and dear to my heart, and I love when I come across free, tech-friendly resources like the ones we chat about in this episode.

You’ll hear a few stories from my time as a classroom teacher, how I just bought a new car and had to use lots of percentages. Since April is financial literacy month, this is the perfect time to listen in to today’s conversation!
