Details: EverFi, inc. is an education technology company that provides an online, blended learning, financial literacy platform. Through a sponsorship from TCF Bank, this program will be available to districts in Macomb County at no cost. The TCF Bank Financial Scholars Program includes:
• A new-media learning platform that uses the latest technology – video, animations, 3-D gaming, avatars, and social networking – to bring complex financial concepts to life for today’s digital generation.
• Aligned to Standards - The co-curricular platform is 6-8 hours long and aligns with the Common Core, State, and National Financial Literacy standards.
• Built-in assessments and student surveys - Students earning a 70% or higher on each post-assessment earn a Certification in Financial Literacy.
• Turnkey implementation - Financial literacy is not an extra-curricular activity. Most schools use the platform at a grade level, after teachers go through the 1 hour training.
• Ten Learning Modules:
o Introduction and Overview
o Payments, Interest Rates, and Credit Cards
o Credit Score
o Financing Higher Education
o Renting vs. Owning
o Taxes and Insurance
o Consumer Fraud
Optional Real-Life Simulations: Students apply their learning in virtual environments to weigh the consequences of their decisions.
