Banqer is simulated online banking for your classroom, it provides a hands on environment for kids to get curious, creative, and ultimately, confident with money.
‘Pay’ students for positive behaviours and completing classroom tasks. Explore budgeting with your students as they learn valuable life skills by managing the rental of their desks and paying for class privileges. Students from years 2 to 8 years 1 to 7 grades 1 to 8 ages 6 to 12 will explore topics ranging from savings and interest to tax, real estate, and insurance. It’s fun, easy, and grows with your class.
We are always hearing from teachers about the difference Banqer has made in their classrooms - from increased motivation and engagement across all of their subjects to students increased understanding of financial concepts and life skills.
"This year we used Banqer as our classroom currency system. It's been a great way to value money in the modern virtual environment of online bank accounts. Each week the students received an income automatically. Then the students who were savvy savers reaped the rewards of earning interest. This lead the students to learning about and appreciating interest in their bank accounts."
"Banqer has been such a simple way to introduce a classroom economy in my room. Throughout the week students keep track of their income using invoices and submit them to me for payment at the end of the week, there is not cutting and laminating required! I love that the students are able to track their own money by logging in at home. Banqer is a great way to start to teach my students about the value and importance of money."
"As a teacher I can create real life experiences to motivate students whilst at the same time building financial literacy understanding and knowledge of careers that will benefit my students in the future."
"I've been absolutely blown away by the enthusiasm of our students as they use Banqer. It's great! They are highly motivated and learning how to be financially literate at the same time. It's an authentic way to learn, practice, challenge oneself and consolidate an extensive range of skills and competencies."
"The children are absolutely loving it. Some children have actually looked into opening their own [real] bank accounts especially realising they are getting interest on their savings. It's awesome hearing children having these conversations with their parents!"
Financial education covers many different areas, and so does Banqer. As your students understanding grows, and the content of your lessons evolves, additional Banqer modules can be enabled to meet the needs of your classroom.
