INCoDe.2030 and the project "No Poupar está o ganho " (Save to Win) certify students' digital skills
The Financial Education Project ‘Save to Win’ promoted by the Foundation Dr. Cupertino de Miranda joins INCoDe.2030 and wants to reach more than 7,000 students and 300 teachers from 34 different municipalities during this school year.
The project, in its 9th edition, starts on October 15th and has the partnership of the programme INCoDe.2030. It aims to establish a bridge between financial education and digital skills, thus preparing the new generations to the technological challenges of the future, opening doors to new opportunities.
This initiative is open throughout the school year and aims to instill responsibility, awareness and consideration on kindergarten, basic and secondary education children regarding their consumption of technologies. Therefore, the ‘Save to Win’ project chances the objectives defined in the Financial Education Reference Framework promoted by the National Financial Training Plan and by the Ministry of Education.
According to Sofia Marques da Silva, coordinator of the initiative INCoDe.2030 and Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Psychology and Education Science of the University of Porto, "working the articulation with central figures in the education of children and young people, and teachers, is vital for the investment in digital strategies. Investing in different strategies, tools and technologies among teachers can contribute to the goals of financial education and literacy, and will have an impact on the most obvious recipients - teachers and students.’
Participants will be offered access to an e-learning platform, as evidence of this technological initiative in addition to face-to-face training. There will also be supporting material such as: syllabus, didactic material, lesson plans and educational animation films, among others.
This project is co-financed by the Human Capital Operational Programme (HCOP) Portugal 2020 and the European Union, through the European Social Fund (ESF). The social impact of this initiative will be evaluated by the Faculty of Psychology and Education Science of the University of Porto.
